Why Include a Seated Lat Pulldown in Your Workout?
A seated lat pulldown offers many benefits:
- Posture improvements
- Building a wider, bigger back
- Stronger back muscles
- Strength building in the biceps and shoulders
- Alternative to a pull-up
Maintaining lat strength is vital for not only stabilizing the back but also offering strength and stability for the neck, shoulders, and hips. When the lats are strong, it helps to minimize compensation movements in other parts of the body and reduce the risk of injury and pain. A seated lat pulldown strengthens the lats and other muscles that work together to extend the arms.
The Jacked Up Power Rack is a great tool to help you up-level your fitness results, offering a variety of options for various exercises and more.
