Lat Pulldown

  1. Using a lateral pulldown machine, adjust the pad so your thighs fit comfortably underneath them.
  2. Grasp the bar with a wide grip, looking forward with your torso upright.
  3. Retract your shoulder blades and pull the bar down in front of you to your upper chest. Squeeze your lats (your back muscles) at the bottom of the move. Try to avoid leaning back and pulling the bar down. If this is the case, lower the weight until you get the form correct.
