Reverse Grip Pulldowns back

Don't lean back too far and let momentum take over.

Remember to pull the bar down all the way to your collarbone—if you just pull it down to your chin, you won't maximize the amount of work your back muscles get.

Starting Position: Seated on a pulldown machine, reach up and take a shoulder-width grip with your palms facing you (hence, the reverse grip).

The Exercise: From this stretched position, pull the bar down to your upper ehest while contracting your back muscles and keeping your elbows in close to your body. Your back should be arched slightly, your chest high, chin up, and your abs and lower back tight.

Then, let the weight back up, resisting it as you straighten your arms. As you finish the rep. your arms should be fully extended, and your lats will be stretched.
