the equivalent of a rear delt raise from this perspective. you should get a
wicked stretch position in the bottom and find this one very mechanically
disadvantageous. | 2 ropes or 2 long bands attached to cable set just above head height in
seated position. pull back into shoulder ext rotation at 90 degree angle
at the elbow. set cable for a high to low course.

the set.

back, so keep elbows back and do the curl, with a supinated grip.
