Kneeling Cable Pull Downs are a great way to prepare yourself and strengthen the muscles you need for pull ups. Keeping your hips in a straight position during this movement better simulates your body position for pull ups than a seated pull down does.
Watch the Kneeling Cable Pull Downs: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform Kneeling Cable Pull Downs:
1. Place a pad or mat near a high cable with a rope attachment.
2. Kneel down so you are aligned just under the cable, making sure that your hips are in a straight upright position and your core and glutes are flexed.
3. Grab onto the rope handles and pull down towards your shoulders with wide elbows.
4. Make sure to flex your back muscles and keep stress out of your neck
5. Pause slightly at the bottom, then slowly release the weight back to the starting position and repeat.
