Lat pulldowns are a popular exercise for building the lats. BUT...
There is one big limitation with the move that is keeping it from giving you the best lat growth and strength possible.

It's not often that you get a clear "best" exercise. But when it comes to training your back at home... This is the clear winner.
That said... There is a big problem with this exercise.
Let me show you exactly what that is, and more importantly, how to fix it! The best home back exercise...made better
As if the back doesn't get neglected enough when compared to the "show" muscles... How do you think the UPPER BACK feels? Deserted! Not anymore.
Check out 2 of my favorite exercises for thickening up that upper back. The best part about these exercises is... You can do them whether you train at a gym or at home. They're simple but really work. Thicken those traps and upper back here.
Simple question. Which exercise do you think is better...PULLUPS or CHINUPS? You might be surprised at my answer. Actually...I get even deeper than that, because we have to!
Which direction should your elbows be pointing? It matters...A LOT! Underhand, overhand, elbows in, elbows out... See the important differences here
Every now and then...An exercise can get lost in the shuffle and forgotten about. In the case of this back exercise...That becomes a HUGE mistake!
Not only can this exercise add some serious width and thickness to your lats BUT It can dramatically increase your strength on deadlifts and squats! See this "Forgotten Back Exercise" here
