Instructions: How To

This variation targets the latissimus dorsi, utilizing a handle band to simulate the lat pulldown machine movement. It offers the benefits of portability and adjustable resistance, improving upper body strength and back definition with a focus on proper form and engagement.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a pull up bar or high fixed object and drop down to your knees and sit on your heels directly underneath the anchor point.
  2. Extend your arms overhead to grab ahold of the resistance band handles with and overhand grip.
  3. Pull the handles down to your shoulders by bending your elbows to the sides of your torso.
  4. Return to the starting position.
