This pulldown is often performed with a bar, working the lats. However, if you change it up to a rope (you may need two ropes clipped together), you can bring your fists further behind you for a better squeeze. Bend over at a 45 degree angle, knees slightly bent. Fully extend your arms in front of you as you grip the rope. Bring the rope slowly down to your sides, and squeeze. Then slowly back.
