Variations for Lat Pull-down

  • Lat Pull-in

    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.

  • Cable Lat Pull-down

    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.
