Muscle Group: Back
Here we work each side of the lats independently, one from the other using cables. This exercise can be performed seated, kneeling or standing.
- Take a seat on a lat pulldown machine and attach a handle so that you can use one arm. Place your non-working hand on its respective thigh.
- Now with one arm reach up and grab the handle so that it is straight up and fully extended. You should feel a big stretch on the side of your back that is being worked.
- Begin the movement by pulling down on the cable. When your elbow is fully extended backward really squeeze and flex lats!
- Slowly and under control return to the starting position, getting a complete stretch in the lat area.
