How to do the Lat Pulldown
Using a wide bar, hold it with a wide comfortable grip, while putting your knees underneath the pad. Pull the bar down smoothly until it touches the top of your chest. Now extend your arms back to the top.
A Workout Staple
This should be a staple in your workout routine as it will help shape your back and give you the nice V shape.
Spotting can be done either by pulling the bar down while standing behind the individual.
