What is pull-down?



  1. Tie a knot in the middle of an exercise band. Put the band over the top of a door so that the knot is on the other side of the door. Then shut the door to keep the band in place.
  2. Stand or sit so that you face the place where you have secured the band.
  3. Hold one end of the band in each hand. Your hands should be at about forehead level, with your arms stretched out in front of you. Hold your hands a little farther apart than the width of your shoulders.
  4. Slowly pull the bands down to chest level so that your elbows are bent and your hands are at chest level.
  5. Slowly return to your starting position.
  6. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
