Iso Pulldown Back Exercise on HammerStrength Machine

This is a variation of the traditional pulldown back exercise but this exercise is done on the HammerStrength and the movement is diagonal vs linear (straight down). This allows you to vary your workout and work out the back muscles from a different angle, a more wider angle and with a different plane of movement.

Method of Performance
  • Set the seat of the machine and the top pad to the desired height. I like to leave the top pad up and knock it into position with my knee when I am seated and ready to do the exercise (see beginning of video).
  • Grasping the handles from the bottom (at the top of the movement), pull them down close to your sides as far as they can go. Release and let the handles go as far up as you can without locking your elbows or straightening your arms to the top of the movement. Repeat for desired number of repetitions.
  • Remember to breathe. Inhale as you pull down the handles and exhale as you release back upwards the handles.
  • Do about 4-5 sets of 12 repetitions each.
  • For the first set, I like to do a light set to warm up my back muscles for this exercise.
