Pull Through Guide

Main Muscle: Glutes

  1. Begin standing a few feet in front of a low pulley with a rope or handle attached. Face away from the machine, straddling the cable, with your feet set wide apart.
  2. Begin the movement by reaching through your legs as far as possible, bending at the hips. Keep your knees slightly bent. Keeping your arms straight, extend through the hip to stand straight up. Avoid pulling upward through the shoulders; all of the motion should originate through the hips.

I do not care that I am a spectacle.

I love this exercise because of how it engages your core and lower back and how well it targets your hamstrings. This one is up there with stiff-legged...+See More

Oct 22, 2012 2:34 AM: Great exercise. I'm in the process of fixing anterior pelvic tilt and used these today and it felt great and helped me focus on working the glutes and really using hip extension -- which transfers over to deadlifts and squats.

Apr 26, 2012 5:15 PM: Agree with poster below, there should been that much shoulder flexion. Hands should be by the hips after full extension. Good exercise, but awkward to do. lol
