KEY COACHING POINTS:

  • Keep your core strong

  • Initiate the movement by retracting your shoulder blades back and down, the muscles in the back (specifically your lats) should be the main focus and not just the pulling of the arms 

  • Pull your chest towards the bar to achieve a full squeeze of your shoulder blades and lats

  • Keep the muscles under tension the entire time
