Description:The man pictured here from a left side view, was inside a gymnasium performing various strength-training exercises. At this point of his routine, he was performing a set of what are known as “pull-downs”. With both arms flexed at the elbows, this exercise calls for the participant to grasp both ends of a very thick rope directly in from of his/her chest. The rope is attached to a weighted cable. The arms are then slowly fully-extended, hands to waist level. Then to complete the exercise, the arms are slowly returned to the flexed position, with both hands once again at chest level. Hopefully, he was also keeping well hydrated during his exercise regimen by drinking fresh water during his workout.
Adults need at least:

OR

1 hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes) of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity (i.e., jogging or running) every week, AND

muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms).

OR

An equivalent mix of moderate- and vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, AND
