This seated exercise allows you to effectively target the muscles of your mid and upper back, whilst maintaining good form throughout.
1. Sit on a bench or the floor with the knees slightly bent and your back straight.
2. Hold the attachment attached to the cable with a neutral grip, palms facing one another and arms extended.
3. Leaning back from the hips and the chest sticking out, pull the cable straight into the body keeping the torso still and squeezing the back muscles.
4. Exhale and slowly return to the start position.
Tip: Keep the elbows close to the body through the movement and ensure the movement comes from the arms/back not from the hips/legs.
