Variations for Lat Pull-down
This strengthens the underside of your arm and the side of your torso. You can adjust the weight according to your strength by using the cable.
This is very similar to lat pull-down with a bar except this allows each arm to work independently since there are two cables and handles, encouraging your strength to be symmetrical.
