Lat pull-down

The lat pull-down is a cable-based exercise that's ubiquitous in gyms around the world. This back builder is easy to learn and highly effective at building back size and strength. It's usually trained in moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set. If grip strength is a limitation, you can wear wrist straps.


  1. Targets the latissimus dorsi muscles
  2. Cables provide constant tension on the muscles
  3. Easy to add variations in grip width, style, or torso angle for variety
