Reverse-grip lat pull-down

The reverse-grip lat pull-down is variation on the lat pull-down that targets the lower lats more than an overhand grip. Because the hands are relatively close together, it also increases the range of motion beyond wider-grip pull-down variations. It can be performed for low reps, such as 5-6 per set, for back strength, or for higher reps for size.


  1. Targets the lower lats and biceps
  2. Easy to learn and execute
  3. Cables provide constant tension on the targeted muscles
