Shoulders - Cable Face Pull

Shoulders - Cable Face Pull
While it looks a little odd, the cable face pull works the shoulders, back and even your lower body must stay tensed to keep the correct posture, making it a great way to get the most out of your workout time. Main muscle targeted – Rear Deltoids and Helper muscles targeted – Upper Back


      • Compound Exercise
      • Main muscle targeted – Rear Deltoids
      • Helper muscles – Upper Back

Male | Female


Stand comfortably, with one foot in front of the other for balance. using the rope attachment, exhale as you pull it towards your face. Keep your elbows high so that your shoulders are engaged rather than your wrists. Exhale as you return your arms to the extended position.

Why it’s good:

This simple exercise works a lot of your body while focusing on your rear deltoids, meaning that you’re getting value for your time.

What to watch out for:

Control the return motion. If you let the weight get away from you, it can pull your arms in their sockets and you may get injured.
