This next exercise progression trains the curvilinear high pull, but we start with an intermediate step before we actually get there. This is a learning progression and it's called the gunslinger. Pick up the kettlebell or dumbbell, swing it in between your legs and then drive the elbow up, pushing that bell forward as you come and return in between the legs. The curvilinear high pull brings the elbow up higher, opens up the armpit, and starts to work the muscles in the rear or posterior shoulder, making it a fantastic exercise for correcting round shoulders or any kind of postural problems with the upper back.
