Horizontal Rope Pull Exercise

In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy performing a horizontal rope pull exercise that works both the grip, forearms, shoulders and core.  It is a great exercise that demands a whole body effort compared to many other traditional horizontal pulling exercises.  The main limitation of this exercise is the individuals ability to lift their own bodyweight off the ground.  Start with this exercise first as it will tax your system and then perform a range of other pull based movements following.
