Abstract

The lat pulldown is an open kinetic chain exercise (1) intended to improve strength, endurance, and hypertrophy in muscles of the back, shoulder girdle, shoulder, and elbow joints (2–9). They can be performed with many types of equipment including selectorized, plate-loaded, pneumatic (compressed fluid/air) resistance machines, adjustable cable columns, and a number of types of elastic resistance equipment (bands and tubing). Although lat pulldowns also can be performed with either neutral or a supinated forearm position grips (2,4,6–9), this Do It Right column will primarily address the wide width, pronated forearm handgrip, front lat pulldown.
