    Face pulls target the posterior deltoids of the shoulder, which are often neglected by other shoulder exercises. You use a cable pulley machine to pull the weight toward straight toward your forehead. Exercising the rear delts will prevent muscular imbalance and build overall shoulder strength.

  • Discussion Fanatics

    Stand facing the pulley with your feet about hip-width distance apart. Reach up and grasp the rope handles with both hands in a neutral position, palms facing in. Take a few steps back until your arms are fully extended, knees slightly bent. Lift the chest up, roll your shoulders back, and engage your core muscles.

    Also, can I do face pulls everyday? Face pulls are a great exercise for the rear deltoids, trapezius, and upper back muscles. They also help build a thick upper back as a base to arch into for a power bench press. Strong shoulders are critically important for everyday activities of lifting, pressing, pulling, and rotating your arms.

    Secondly, what can I use instead of face pulls?

    Banded Face Pull Alternatives

    1. Cable Face Pull. Had to throw this no brainer in there because some people do not have bands and think its the end of the world.
    2. TRX® Face Pull. Yep, same movement, just another piece of equipment.
    3. Mini-Band Shoulder Series.
    4. Band Pull Aparts.
    5. Cable High Rows.
    6. Y-T-W.

    Do shrugs work?

    Shoulder shrugs and weights Hand weights of 5 or 8 pounds are still heavy enough to strengthen your trapezius and upper back muscles. As you get into the habit of doing this exercise several times a week, you can increase the weight to 15, 20, 25 pounds or more.
