Cable Upright Row (dual pulley)

Instructions

Preparation

Stand between low dual pulleys. Grasp handles with opposite hands - right hand holds left stirrup and left hand holds right stirrup. Stand upright with arms straight and palms facing back (overhand grip), one stirrup in front of other.

Execution

Pull handles up to front of shoulders with elbows leading and cables crossed. Allow wrists to flex as stirrups are lifted. Lower and repeat.

Comments

Keeping one cable slightly in front of other cable may encourage slight asymmetrical movement. Therefore, alternating to opposite position every other set or workout can be practiced. See Upright Row Safety. Also see Cable Upright Row with two stirrup attachments attached to single pulley cable.
