Welcome to day 3 of the combo pullup progression. Today we are introducing the Lawn-Mower Pull!
The Lawn Mower Pull is the first unliateral movement in the Pullup progression. Unilateral exercises use one side of the body, such as one arm or one leg. They help to eliminate strength imbalances between extremities in the same movement pattern.
Exercise 3: Lawn-Mower Pull
As you stand up, rotate slightly, pulling the handle to the bottom of your rib cage, squeezing the same-side down and back. Pause.
Return slowly to the start position. Repeat for the prescribed number of reps, then switch sides and repeat on that side.
