High Pulley Lateral Extensions

high pulley lateral extensions

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

Standing in front of pulleys. Keep your arms stretched forward to take the right handle with your left hand and take the left handle with your right hand :

  • Inhale and spread your arms, keeping your arms outstretched. Expire at the end of the movement.

  • Back to the starting position by controlling the movement.

This exercice works deltoids, mainly posterior beams, infraspinatus and teres minor. At the end of movement (when shoulder blades approach), this exercice works trapezius and rhomboids.

Note : For people who have shoulders forward because of chest muscles, do this exercice and use the machine that works rear shoulders help to rebalance posture.

To straighten shoulders, it’s necessary to use moderate weights to stay focused on the end of movement to tighten shoulder blades properly.
