Overview

Rocky pull-ups/pull-downs are a back exercise that targets the lats. To do a rocky pull-up, start by standing under a pull-up bar with your feet shoulder-width apart. Grab the bar with an overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Hang from the bar with your arms fully extended and your legs straight. Pull yourself up until your chin is above the bar, then slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, Rocky pull-downs are performed in a similar manner, but instead of using your bodyweight, you use a weight machine to provide resistance. To do a rocky pull-down, sit down on the weight machine and grasp the bar with an overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Position your feet on the footrests and lean back slightly. Pull the bar down until it touches your chest, then slowly raise it back up to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, Rocky pull-ups/pull-downs are a great way to build muscle and strength in your back. They are also a challenging exercise that can help you improve your overall fitness.
