You’ll need to use the Lat Pull-Down machine at your gym, which basically consists of a seat, and an overhead pulley which you pull down behind your head and the release upwards again.
If you’ve ever tried to do a pull up and wondered why you have absolutely no arm strength, then it’s probably due to you having weak back muscles.
The Lat Pull-Down is a great place to start to start building up those muscles to activate your posterior chain. Before you know it, you’ll even be trying out those pull ups with more success!
Anyone, you can make this as hard or easy as you need to.
To make it harder for the expert, bring your hands closer together or make your arms into a wide V shape to make it more challenging.
With good posture. Sit nice and tall, and make sure your hands are a nice even distance apart, somewhere above or slightly wider than your shoulders.
Make sure you select a weight that you can manage without straining yourself, and then you can gradually build up. Ensure the movement is smooth.
I also like this machine as it can be set to whatever is needed. So it works if you are unfit or really tough, just adjust the weights. Look after your back and your back will look after you!
This was my favourite move when I started going to the gym as a teenager!
