Target Muscle: Lats

Pull Downs Overview

Lat pull-downs specifically focus on lats at the primary target muscles. It also targets abs, biceps, shoulders, and upper back as secondary muscle groups. It is an amazing exercise that builds the muscles of your back. 

In order to maximize the growth of your back muscles, it would be best if you try multiple variations, angles, and hand positions. Whether you are performing full-body workouts, pull workouts, back workouts, or upper body workouts, this exercise fits all types.

How to Do It

  1. Put a wide grip handle on the lat pulldown machine.
  2. Sit down, flex the elbow and grab the handle. This grip should be pronated (overhand). 
  3. Now, pull the handle down until your elbows align with the torso. 
  4. Slowly return the handle to the initial position. 

Pull down Tips

  1. Make sure you don’t arch excessively through the spine. 
  2. In case you feel like your back isn’t being used properly or your biceps are being overused, go for a false grip. This grip refers to not wrapping your thumb around your dumbbell.
  3. Do not lock your shoulder blade down.
  4. Enable your shoulder blade to move and rotate internally.
