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 in from of his/her chest. The rope is attached to a weighted cable. The arms are then slowly extended 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.
