Tall Kneeling Cable Straight Arm Pull Down – An Osteopaths Perspective
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy demonstrating a tall kneeling cable straight arm pull down. The straight arm pull down is an exercise that focuses on the back muscles (lats, serratus etc). Typically it is performed in a standing or seated bench position with a straight bar. The benefit of performing the same exercise with a cable is that one can explore a greater range of movement (arms can move down by the side compared to in front for the bar) as well as the need to maintain appropriate tension through the cable in the pulling arc.
