Underhand-Grip Lat Pulldown

The underhand-grip lat pulldown improves strength in the back, biceps, and forearms while engaging the biceps more than a traditional overhand-grip does.

    Sit on a bench facing an adjustable cable machine with a lat pulldown bar positioned on a high setting. With your back straight, grab the bar with an underhand grip, your arms fully extended and your hands shoulder-width apart.
  2. Underhand-Grip Lat Pulldown
    Pull your shoulder blades down and back, bringing the bar to your chest. Pause and then return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Sit tall with your chest up and shoulders back.
  • Pull the bar all the way to your chest.
