It has been awhile….
Since I have created some post about specific exercises. I thought to myself, I have been slacking in that particular department, so here it is, I will do a better job of doing more of these again.
This particular exercise is done using a rope extension with the cable machine, so unless you have this at your home, it will take a gym to do this exercise the way I am describing it. It is an upper body workout and like any other exercise, it takes proper form and technique to decrease chances of injury.
How to perform the rope pull (face pull):
- Facing a high pulley (using the rope or dual handles attached) pull the weight directly toward your face, being sure to separate your hands as you do so. Be sure to keep your upper arms parallel to the ground.
Easy enough right? Should be, it is a beginner exercise and to make it more challenging add more load or do more reps.

Do I like this particular exercise?
Tell me if you have done this exercise and if you like it, would love to hear, also don’t forget to mention how much weight you face pull, I am always curious how strong some of you are 🙂
Very simple exercise, but make sure you are using proper hand positions to get the full ROM and avoiding injury.
