Precautions and Tips for Face Pull

To avoid leaning back too much or arching your back when you do the face pull, you can adopt a half-kneeling position.

When you pull on the band, make sure your elbows are held high and the band is at eye level.

Concentrate on your rear delts and contract them while you pull.

Do NOT jut your head forward to meet the band.

Do NOT rely on momentum and control the entire movement through muscle action. Keep the movement smooth and slow.
