The pullover works a range of muscles including the pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, latissimus dorsi, triceps and abdominal muscles. Learn how to perform this movement in a machine with the team at Fitness Institute!
Machine: Hammer Strength Pullover
To begin, sit in the machine. Putting the safety belt on is recommended. Reach back, placing elbows on pads and grip onto the handles (Figure 1).
Contract the Latissimus Dorsi, pulling the handle from behind the head to the thighs (Figure 2).
Pause, then allow the handle to slowly return to behind the head.
Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
