Workout & Standing Pullover Exercise

Flashback to 2005 when these standing pullover exercise photos were taken...been a long time since I did these, but I added them in today because the gym was busy and I needed a replacement exercise.

All the racks were taken so I couldn't do good mornings...I tried to kill time with the standing pullover, but they were still busy so I did RDL's instead of good mornings.

Description below.

Today's workout:

1) Jumps - 3 sets of 3 reps of 2 jumps (jump, land, jump again, reset for next rep)

2) Squat

3A) 1-leg Stability Ball Leg Curl
3B) Standing Pullover

4B) Stability Ball Plank

Standing Pullover Exercise Description
- Stand in front of the lat pulldown station with your knees bent and hips back.
- Prepare for the exercise by bracing (contracting) your abdominals from top to bottom.
- Place your hands shoulder-width apart on the pulldown bar and keep a small bend in your elbows.
- Slowly pull the bar down and back towards your abdomen.
- Your torso should remain completely stationary. Your abdominals should remain strongly contracted.
- Slowly return your arms to the top position to achieve a stretch in the abdominals.
- Pause briefly and repeat.

Resource of the Day

In case you missed it last week, here's a free Turbulence Training Nutrition Presentation/Webinar.

=> Fat Loss Webinar

It includes my 15 nutrition rules.

And today's tip of the day:

Monitor everything you eat. Find out what works best for you. Find out how you respond to different foods. Find out what makes you sleepy and what keeps you mentally alert. Find out what fills you up and what leaves you hungry. Then eat more of what helps and less of what doesn't.

It's that simple,
