Lat Pulldown

The lat pulldown is a basic upper body strength exercise that targets the upper back. The exercise also improves stability in the lower back and core.

    Sit at a lat pulldown station and grab the bar with an overhand grip that's just beyond shoulder width. Your arms should be completely straight and your torso upright.

    Pull your shoulder blades down and back, and bring the bar to your chest. Pause, then slowly return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid rounding in your upper back. Sit tall with your chest up and shoulders back.
  • Don't use a partial range of motion. Pull the bar all the way to your collarbone.
