Rack pull

Set a barbell at knee level on a squat rack. Stand with your knees slightly bent and gently touching the bar. Bend to grasp it with an overhand grip. Your hands should be just outside your legs, your back arched. Now stand up, keeping the bar close to your body.

Perform 10-12 reps.

Dumbbell row

Hold a pair of dumbbells and lower your torso until almost parallel to the floor. Let the weights hang at arm’s length. Pull your shoulders back and together, hold the position for 2 seconds, then row the weights up to either side of your rib cage, still squeezing your shoulder blades.

Perform 10-12 reps.

Pull-up hold

Hang at arm’s length from a pull-up bar with an overhand grip, your hands about shoulder-width apart. Pull your chest up to the bar and hold for 10-20 seconds. Perform as many reps as you can. Once you can manage more than 5 reps, add some extra resistance by placing a dumbbell between your feet.

Do 10-12 reps, then switch sides to balance your muscle.
