Does the gym have a cable station? The piece of equipment that has the cable crossover exercise? If so you can do pullups on the support bar that goes across that section.

If the shoulders arenít moving down during the pulldown, itís an arm movement. One good cue that has been around for years is to think about pushing the elbows down, as opposed to pulling with the arms. This tends to put more focus on the lats rather than the biceps.

It helps when you straighten your arms up straight because it help more stretch on your lats.

Don't allow your shoulders to take too much strain at the top of the movement, you're only stressing ligaments and the joints of the shoulder in a weakened position.

Another tip is to keep your scapula retracted through the entire set (squeeze your shoulder blades together). This will keep your shoulders back and so help avoid injury.
