Barbell Pullovers

barbell pullovers

I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.

Arms stretched with the barbell with a pronated grip. Your arms spread to your shoulders width:

  • Inhale as much as possible and lower the barbell behind your head by slightly bend your elbows.

  • Exhale returning to the starting position

This exercise work pectoralis major, triceps long head, teres major, lats and a little bit serratus anterior, rhomboids and pectoralis minor.

This exercise is to be done with light weights and it’s necessary to pay attention to positioning and breathing. This movement is excellent for thoracic expansion.
