Did you know this is actually a back (lat), not a shoulder exercise?!
This is one of the most INCORRECTLY performed exercises in the gym. Working the lats in a lat pull down requires correct shoulder placement. Without this your lats won’t be properly engaged and you’ll likely end up using your traps instead and then get a tight neck.
Featured in the video is a MAG neutral grip bar which Kate is using to perform the lat pull down – this maximises external rotation of the shoulder which helps with… you guessed it, lat recruitment. MAG grips are available exclusively for VH client use in the club. Yet another perk of working with us. Happy lat day!
