This exercise works the latissimus dorsi and teres major.

This exercise works a little bit the rhomboid, trapezius and posterior deltoid when the shoulder blades get closer.

Generally, all « Pull » exercises work the biceps and anterior brachialis. This movement with the semi-pronated grip work especially the brachioradialis.
