PARE/POPAT Training: Stay Aggressive on the Pull

By comparison, the pull rotations are generally easier to perform than the push. Which is precisely why you’re more likely to make a mistake.

Because it’s easier, there’s a tendency to lose focus and relax at the wrong time. This typically happens at the end of the rotation.

You must remain aggressive at all times during the pull, especially at the ends. A common mistake is to simply stop and reverse direction, and not continually pull back on the machine.
