here's what you can do....find yourself a v-bar. then, attach it to the lat pull down machine.

then, stand back, put one leg on the seat to support yourself and do the face pull while standing up. do a higher number of reps like 10-15 and use a lighter weight because the idea is not to move a lot of weight on this exercise...the goal is to do it with minimal body movement. the only thing which should be moving are your arms as they pull the v-bar towards your face. don't rock or bend your back. keep it at a fixed angle thoughout the set.

good luck

^^I prefer to use a rope rather than a V-Bar, but good advice nonetheless.

Then I'll be switching to the v-bar tomorrow. Haven't ever used that for face pulls before.
