Thanks for the vid. I was trying find a quick clean vid for beginners. This one helped!
Great vid. Quick and to the point. Thank you
You are taking the bar to low creating a forward rotation in the shoulders which can result in injury.
Yes. Better to slightly lean back with chest up I find than to stay upright, staying upright invariably makes you spin the bar through your hands.
Should be using a thumb less grip
Nice video man
He says place your hands shoulder-width apart and then proceeds to place them about 3 feet apart , he needs to take a look in the mirror
And he said to place the arms wherever you are comfortable with
Oh Dear..Oh Dear…how not to do a Lat Pulldown…(Jesus did you see his shoulders rotating..😮) Stick to Running..
The thumbs should be over the bar, not curled round the bar. Doing this engages more of the upper arm muscles which is not the goal of the exercise.
That’s not true if you put your hand over the flat bar then you’re cheating the exercise and cheating yourself. You need to widen your hands
Love your enthusiasm
TYSM. This has helped so much.
Thanks for this I shall look into doing this
I used my Streatch bands to re create this idea in a chair and pull down from a door area
Since I’m kinda light, the machine pulls me up quite a bit, and I’m worried about slamming the weights back down since I go to planet fitness.
Stop going to planet fitness
I hate the cushions that go on top of the thighs… What the hell… Fat people can’t use this exercise
Aim to have your elbows in line with your hips. Don’t let them go back.
love the tutorial! thanks
You are not demonstrating this exercise correctly! You do not need to pull the bar that low which is making your shoulders rotate forward. That opens you to all kinds of injuries plus its not targeting the back correctly.
I really appreciate the level of depth put into this demonstration, thanks! Very helpful!
this guy makes me feel safe
BRO THIS COMMENT😂
Thank you so much, I signed up for a membership at a new gym and I don’t know what to do.
