in Lats Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Lats
Hold on to the pull-up bar with your palms facing forward using a wide grip.
Bring your torso back around 30 degrees. Stick your chest out. This is your starting position.
Pull your torso up until your upper chest comes in contact with the bar by drawing the shoulders and the upper arms down and back. Exhale as you do this. Squeeze your back muscles once you reach the full contracted position. Only the arms should move as you perform this portion of the movement.
After a second in the contracted position, lift the bar back to your starting position when your arms and lats are fully stretched. Inhale as you do this.
Repeat the same movements except this time your torso will remain straight as you go up and the bar will touch the back of the neck instead of your upper chest.
Once you have lowered yourself back to the starting position, repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
