If you have bad shoulders or poor posture Face-Pulls are one of the staple exercises to incorporate into your workout routines.

These can be performed on a regular basis to off-set the damage caused from pressing exercises and day-to-day slouching.

They can be performed various ways using overhand/reverse grips with a rope, more external rotation with extended handles or high repetitions with a band.

You can set the pulley at face level to start or higher/lower. Keep control throughout the movement and pause for 1 second in the top position when the shoulder blades are squeezed together.

If you find yourself being unstable or “jerking” too much either lower the weight or perform on a seated cable row machine.
