Sometimes I might look to change up the position that I or the client is in to perform an exercise because I am looking to make the exercise more challenging or easier. In the video below you will see a supine lying dual cable horizontal pull. The exercise is a horizontal pull movement (same as the seated row etc), but lying down on the back adds stability and keeps the spine relatively stable and still. I have added in the foam roller to allow a full range of motion pulling movement. Should this exercise have been performed on the ground, only a partial pulling movement would have been able to be completed.
