Straight Arm Pulldown

If you’ve been working out in a gym for awhile, you’ve probably used the Lat Pulldown as part of your routine. As most of you guys know, the lat pulldown is usually the default machine that people use to target the muscles of the back such as the rhomboids and latissimus dorsi. But what if you come down to the gym and all the lat pulldown machines are used? What do you do? Well, here’s a good alternative. It’s a called a straight arm pulldown.  This is one of my favorite exercises because not only does it work your back muscles and arms, but it will also challenge your core. Performing this exercise will require you to establish a firm stance as you will have to drive the bar you’re holding towards your body. I have attached a video for you to see how its done. So next time all the lat pulldowns are being used, just walk away and make your own pulldown. 🙂
