Reverse-Grip Lat Pull-Down Exercise
This exercise is excellent for strengthening the muscles of your upper back and biceps. In fact, this is a great way to build up those biceps!
The lat pull down exercise has been a staple exercise in workout routines for both body builders and fitness enthusiasts for a very long time. Building the muscles in the back improves posture and helps with even simply every day tasks. Ever twist up a back muscle sweeping your garage floor or mopping your kitchen? That's a weak back in action.
There are many variations to the lat pull-down that fit into anyone's routine regardless of fitness level.Below we show it using a machine, but you can do this with a theraband or free weights, if desired. Just be extra careful of your form if you try free weights - and don't start off too heavy.
How to perform The Reverse-Grip Lat Pull-Down:
- Grab a workout bar with an under-hand grip that is just less than shoulder width apart.
- Pull the bar down to your chest.
- Pause, and then slowly return to the starting position.
