One-Arm Pressdown

Leave a comment

1) Attach a D-handle to the high pulley and with an overhand grip (palm facing down).
2) Standing upright with the torso straight and a very small inclination forward, bring the upper arm close to your body and perpendicular to the floor. The forearm should be pointing up towards the pulley as you hold the handle. This is your starting position.
3) Using the triceps, bring the handle down until it touches the front of your thigh and the arm is fully extended perpendicular to the floor. The upper arm should always remain stationary next to your torso and only the forearm should move. Exhale as your perform this movement.
4) After a second hold at the contracted position, bring the handle slowly to the starting point. Breathe in as you perform this step.
5) Repeat for recommended amount of repetitions.
6) Do the same for the other hand.
