Straight-Arm Pulldown - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Begin by grabbing the wide bar from the top pulley of a pulldown machine. Use a wider than shoulder-width pronated (palms down) grip.

Step 2

Step a couple of feet backwards.

Step 3

Bend your torso forward at around 30 degrees with your arms fully extended and your elbows slightly bent. Tighten your lats. This is your starting position.

Step 4

Pull the bar down by contracting your lats until your hands are near your thighs. Exhale as you do this.

Step 5

Return to your starting position while keeping your arms straight.

Step 6

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
