Unilateral Chin Grip Pull Down
Unilateral Chin Grip Pull downs allow trainees to work each arm Independently to balance strength levels. It is very common for one arm to be significantly stronger than the other which can indicate imbalances. Correctly imbalances are very important for injury prevention and optimal performance.
A unilateral chin grip pull down allows trainees a greater range of motion on the bottom of the exercise since there is no straight bar present to hit the chest. Ideally the elbow should touch the bottom of the rib cage without excessive backward lean. Maintain a vertical pulling position. On top of the movement keep at least 10 degrees of flexion in the elbow to prevent joint and connective tissue stress.
