Power Pulls

WHY: "This improves your rotational core," says Dixon. "You're not just working on a pulling action that strengthens the back; you're forced to engage your core at the same time."
HOW: Hold both straps in one hand, lean back, and reach for the anchor point with your other hand. Bending your knees, reach toward the ground on the same plane as the straps. Pull yourself up, focusing on your back and core, not your arm muscles.
