Face pulls

  1. Face pulls


    What is the correct way to do face pulls so u focus on ur rear delt

    1- pulling the middle of the rope towards ur face
    2- pull the middle of rope right above your head


  2. Towards your face and as far back as you can without scapular adduction.

    When the scapulae adduct, it works the traps/rhomboids more and they will over power the posterior delts.

    True. Takes some serious mind muscle awareness, though.

    Rear delts take a great M-M connection as is. IMO, it is the hardest muscle to get a good contraction.

    That being said, what's a particularly good way to hit that muscle?

    Well, facepulls and lying on your stomach on a 30-45 degree bench and keeping your arms straight, thumbs down, raising them up into a v shape.

    Would that be while holding light DBs or not?

  20. I like to have a semi-pronated grip while pulling my elbows back until my elbows are up to shoulders and my humerus is at about a 45 degree angle in relation to my torso. You can do these either lying down or standing up.
