EZ-bar Pullover

The EZ-bar pullover increases strength throughout the entire upper body, including the chest, back, shoulders, and triceps. This exercise will also actively engage the core throughout the range of motion.

    Sit on a bench holding the EZ-bar in your lap with a shoulder-width overhand grip. Lie back on to the bench while simultaneously raising the bar over your chest. This is your starting position.

    Keeping the elbows slightly bent, lower the EZ-bar over and beyond your head. You should feel an intense stretch in your triceps and lats. Pause, brace core, and pull the bar back to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid letting your shoulders move forward. Keep your chest up, and shoulders back.
  • Avoid lifting your back off the bench. To ensure a proper position, keep the core engaged.
