Hi Paul and others,
I am doing the 531 Building a Bigger Yoke, so was interested in the recent article:
I do face pulls or band pull aparts nearly daily. I was taught to do face pulls with the cable starting at a low-sternum height. This results in a pulling upwards towards your face. I also do these seated at a row machine, and use the rope in place of the normal handles. Again, these start lower and are pulled upward towards my face.
How do these compare to the ones you do in the video, where you start high and finish high? Should I start doing the “forehead” pulls exclusively?
Last thing - I have already been doing the “rogue rows” as recommended by Wendler (as you credit in your article). What I’ve been doing is using the rope attachment and simply looping it under the barbell and doing the movement as you show it. I actually really like this more than a fixed handle. Any disadvantage to this?
Thanks for any help.
