    depends on the weight. but when im using all the weights in the cable machine, yes, i lean back and one foot infront of other to maintain balance.


    face pull:

    -grab a tricep rope
    -set the cable machine to same height as your face.
    -set weight
    -grasp the rope--with fist facing each other.
    -with nice easy controlled motion, pull the rope towards your "FACE"

    link to face pulls: http://www.ironworkout.com/shoulder_workout.htm (near the bottom)

    speaking of face pulls, im having a hard time keeping my stance. my gym only has the pulleys so its above my head height. when i go moderately heavyweight, the rope pulls me back after each completed rep. i keep my legs bent slightly to plant myself but i still get dragged.

    it depends on how your split is designed, it's not going to make a difference. If done properly it should be done on a shoulder day if that's part of your routine
