👀 One tool I’ve come across that can help with the open grip on pulldowns to help you activate more lats and less arm muscles is @angles90.grips.official which can attach to any bar or handle
.
.
✅ It not only allows you to perfect the open grip, but it also keeps the hands free to rotate naturally during the movement
.
.
💪They’re easy to keep in your gym bag and take out on back day
.
.
👉 Check them out at angles90.com
.
.
🚨Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Angles 90. I simply appreciate the product that I purchased myself and want to make others aware of the benefits.

🚨 When doing the upright row, either on a Smith machine, with a barbell, dumbbells or cables, you do NOT ❌ need to bring your arms higher than parallel with the floor. The hands are just below the lower chest, as I'm demonstrating in this video
.
.
✅ This will target the deltoids and protect the shoulder complex from injury that can occur when your arms are brought too high
.
.
✅ Using a wider-than-shoulder-width grip on the bar will help to place more focus on the middle delts, with a bit less on the front delts, and will even hit the rear delts as well.

💪The bench press is the ultimate test of upper-body pushing strength, and one of the most used mass-building exercises for chest.
.
.
‼️However, the most dangerous part of the bench press is NOT doing the actual exercise – it's un-racking the bar to set up. Here, it’s very difficult to pull the shoulder blades back, as they should be, while lifting the bar out of the rack. This causes the shoulder blades to pull forward, which places the shoulder complex in a dangerous position that could lead to various shoulder injuries.
.
.
👉 A better option is to start the bench press with the bar ON the chest instead of above the chest. This allows you to pull your shoulder blades back before the weight of the bar is compromising the safety of the shoulder complex. .
.
✅ To do this, place a flat bench in a power rack and set the safety bars at a height where the bar sits on the chest.
.
.
✅ To start, roll the barbell so that’s it’s above the top of your head when you lie down on the bench.
.
.
✅ From there, roll the barbell down to your lower chest, just below the nipples and above your upper abs. With the barbell on your chest, find your preferred grip width, then arch your back and push your chest out as you pull your shoulder blades back and down into the bench.
.
.
✅ Now, press the barbell up in an arc pattern toward your head as you continue to keep your shoulder blades pulled back.
.
.
✅ Once your arms are close to full extension with your shoulder blades back, lower the bar back to your chest in a slow and controlled manner, and repeat for reps.
.
.
✅ Once the set is over, roll the barbell back over your head to dismount the bench.
.
.
