KEY COACHING POINTS:

  • Keep your core strong and your spine neutral

  • Start the movement by retracting your shoulder blades (pinning your shoulder blades back), the muscles in the upper back should be the main focus and not just the pulling of the arms 

  • Pull the weight till your elbows are as far back as they can get so you can achieve a full retraction of your shoulder blades

  • Keep the muscles under tension the entire time
