Standing Lat PulldownMuscle: BackOther: Latissimus DorsiType: Isolation
You want to start his exercise by grabbing the cable-pull lat pulldown bar shoulder-width apart with a palms down grip with your elbows slightly bent. Make sure you back up so that you start with your arms out. While maintaining high elbow position (just like in the crawl stroke), push the bar down by rotating the shoulder until the bar is a few inches below the hip bone.
This exercise simulates the pull phase of the freestyle swim stroke.
