Lat Pulldowns

lat pulldowns

I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.

Sitting in front of the machine with your legs rigged. Take the bar with a pronated grip and your hands very apart:

  • Inhale and pull the bar down to your upper chest by pulling out your chest and bringing your elbows back.

  • Exhale at the end of the movement

This exercise works the superior and central fibers of the latissimus dorsi, teres major and a little bit the trapezius (middle and inferior portions), rhomboids, biceps, brachialis, and pectoralis major.

This exercise is excellent for developing back in thickness.
