The lat pull down prone on a stability ball with tubing will allow us to produce a movement similar to the traditional lat pull down that you see on a stacked weight machine. You can manipulate the body's position relative to gravity because you have the tubing anchored above your head as you're lying chest down on the ball. Make sure you have good lumbar stability and don't hyperextend your lumbar spine. Start with the hands above your head and then draw the tubing back along your sides, bringing the scapula together, keeping the forearms parallel to the floor, all the while maintaining very good stabilization so that the ball is not moving all over the place. Those feet will transfer force through to the hips so you can get good stability and use that upper extremity motion.
