Lat pull down

Primary muscles worked: Latissimus Dorsi

Grasp pulldown bar with wide overhand grip. Sit upright on seat, not slouching. When pulling down the bar, lean only slightly backward to avoid hyperextending your lower back. Keep arms flexed throughout the exercise. Your thighs should be positioned under the support to handle heavy resistance. Lat pulldowns are a great prelude to chin-ups.
