In the videos below osteopath Heath Williams will show you how you can incorporate vertical pulling into your exercise routine if you have a cable machine or bands, but no traditional lat pull down. By changing ones position we can get into a position that allows us to perform a vertical pull movement. In both of these exercises we require stability and control through the hips and trunk as well. This is very different to the seated pull down where we maximise stability and isolate the stress to the pull down movement only.

This exercise can also be performed using two independent cables or just one cable. Each will challenge the body differently and therefore comes with its own unique benefits.
