To build a great physique do this.
Start with an exercise, called the straight-arm pull-down, courtesy of Olympic champ Michael Phelps.
Stand behind the lat pull-down seat and grab the bar with an overhand grip, your hands slightly more than shoulder-width apart. Lower the bar to eye level – that’s the starting position. Keeping your arms straight, pull the bar to your upper thighs, pause, then reverse the movement back to the starting position.
Have 20 minutes?
