Lat pulldown form?

  1. Question Lat pulldown form?


    Can someone tell me what the correct form for lat pulldown is?
    I do them on a cable pulley kneeling, How wide of a grip should I use and how do I tell, is it something with forearm angle? Should I bring it down to my nipples or colar bone?


  2. To your chin to focus more on the lats and less on arms, so i hear
    Do you do pull ups as well?

  3. I actually do them close grip and bring it to my chin. Don't lean back and focus on pulling with your lats and not your arms.

  4. Keep back straight, shoulders back and down, and if your squeezing ur shoulder blades together at the bottom of the movement ull be using your lats. Imagine ur holding a note between your shoulders blades, Draw the stomach in and keep the shoulders from moving up or forwards.

  5. Cable Front Pulldown

    Cable Underhand Pulldown

    Cable Close Grip Pulldown

    I usually switch up hand positioning every couple of weeks.
