Wide Grip Pulldowns back

Don't lean back too far and pull the weight down with momentum.

Starting Position: Seated on a pulldown machine, position the knee pads so your thighs fit snugly under them. Then firmly grasp a wide bar—your hands should be almost twice your shoulder width apart. This is a great exercise for the major muscles of your back.

Don'/ pull the bar down to your chest bone (sternum). The bar should actually be pulled down to your collarbone area.

The Exercise: Pull the bar down to the top of your chest. Focus on keeping your elbows directly below the bar. Arch your back slightly, and hold the bar in that position right on top of your collarbone for a count of one; then slowly let the bar back up to the starting position.
