leg rotary pull

1. Start by standing on one leg and holding a cable handle with the opposite hand.
2. Proceed to pull the cable handle towards your waist while maintaining your balance on one leg.

DB Squat

1) Grasp DB’s and let arms hang down at sides.
2) Start position: Stand with feet slightly wider than hip width apart. Knees should be slightly bent.
3) Lower body by flexing at the hips and knees. Upper body can flex forward at the hips slightly (~5°) during movement. Be sure to “sit back” so that knees stay over the feet.
4) Once thighs are parallel to floor, return to start position.
5) Remember to keep head and back straight in a neutral position – hyperextension or flexion may cause injury. Keep weight over the middle of foot and heel, not the toes.
6) DO NOT allow knees to go past the big toe or deviate laterally or medially throughout movement. Keep abdominals tight throughout exercise by drawing stomach in toward spine.

DB Bulgarian Split Squat

1. Start by holding dumbells at your side.
2. Place your back foot on a bench with your other leg out in front of you.
3. Proceed into a squat position by lowering your hips straight down.
4. Return to the starting position and repeat for the suggested repetitions.
5. Repeat with the other leg.

Preacher Curls

1) Adjust seat or arm support height so that, while seated, top of arm support pad is at chest level.
2) Position arms shoulder width apart with elbows and upper arm supported on pad.
3) Start position: Grasp bar with underhand grip (palms facing up) with elbows slightly bent. Choose a narrow or wide grip if applicable.
4) Flex at elbows and curl handle up until forearms are perpendicular to floor. Contract biceps at top of movement.
5) Return to start position.
6) Remember to keep shoulders stabilized – do not shrug shoulders forward on down (eccentric) phase of movement. Do not fully extend elbows at bottom of movement.

One Arm Cable Pushdown

1) Stand approximately 2-3 feet away from overhead pulley with feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent. You may use a staggered stance for increased stability.
2) Start position: Grasp handle with shoulder width or medium overhand grip (palms down). Lower handle to chest level so that elbow is bent at 90°.
3) Keeping shoulder stabilized and elbow close to side, extend arm and lower bar to hip level.
4) Return to start position.

3) Pull body up until bar is below chin level.
4) Return to start position.
5) Remember to keep the movement controlled with the body stable to minimize momentum and body sway. If the bar is too high, it is advisable to use a step to ensure proper hand placement as well as safety. Pick a weight that allows you to fatigue at the prescribed repetitions.
