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.

Yellow tinted lenses look yellow, because they are allowing red and green light to enter your eyes. How do they do this? By absorbing blue. This is why they help you maintain a proper circadian rhythm: They prevent the stimulation of ipRGCs.
