Machine Exercise Technique

When your 10th grade English teacher told you that you could be anything you want if you just work hard enough and don’t give up, she did NOT mean for you to end up on someone’s YouTube fitness channel lookin’ a hot mess! With this series of short videos, I’m going to help you avoid a whole bunch of S. H. I. T.

Video #5: Lat Pull Down

With this series of short videos, I’m going to help you avoid a whole bunch of S. H. I. T.

This is another back exercise. Now remember with the Seated Row (see video 3 of 12), I wanted you to initiate the movement from the back then follow through with the arms. It’s the same with the Lat Pulldown.

I want you to start from the back, then follow through with the hands (as opposed to starting with the hands, then following through with the elbows).

You want to make sure you’re anchored. I am going to make sure that the seat is up a little bit higher, so that the pads press down onto my knees. They will hold me in place and provide a fixed point, so that I can pull straight down (back and then elbows).

Arch up a little to isolate. What we want is to initiate from the back, then pull down with the elbows.
