Neutral grip v-bar pull-downs 👍
Been loving these recently and can really feel it in my lats! The key for me is engage my lats before I even begin to pull down and to release slowly 😁 ——————

Will miss training in this beautiful gym!
Try this variation of a wide grip lat pull down on your next back day. I start off by only using my fingers to pull the bar, thus making the movement harder. By being off of the bench and my knees bent to about 90-100 degrees, I have to embrace my core and my back in order to sustain a stable body. More muscles are activated then sitting on your butt. You can also see I’m pulling the bar at a 45* degree angle behind my head. Pulling weight in an unusual spot to work muscles that haven’t been activated before, thus giving me a physique I’ve never had before. Not only is this an advanced movement, afterwards I stand up straight as a scarecrow because my entire back has been fully activated. #lafitness #fitness #lifting #backday #widegrip #latpulldown #tryit #health #wide
If you have the audio on and can hear this song, you will agree that it perfectly summarizes our gym addicts' passion for lifting. (and by gym addicts, I don't count people who take more than 1 rest day per week . Sorru you care for your health but you are not passionate/addicted 🤷♂️😂) "This is what makes us feel alive
We could do this ´til the day we die
We´ll sing it ´til the end of time

If you have seen one of these signs on your lifting equipment then chances are you have been in any gym in America....chances of someone actually understanding the sign a lot smaller. Something I’ve been working on for more than one reason is understanding the exercise I’m doing. A lot of people see this sign and misunderstand it. When you complete a lat pull down it is common to feel it somewhat in your bicep....but if your not feeling anything in your lats your doing it wrong. In a lat pull down the latissimus Dorsi and teres major are your prime movers...the muscles responsible for the lift. Where as the bicep is merely functioning as a synergist it helps with the movement and to provide stability. If you feel like your doing a lat pull down incorrectly....it’s okay. You can do a few things on your own to correct it. 1. Switch to a lower weight because your biceps might be compensating because your lats just aren’t up to doing it yet. 2. Focus on your lats and make sure you feel the squeeze. If you can’t figure it out on your own that’s okay....go ask a personal trainer or ask a friend who knows how to do it properly. Sometimes it’s as simple as someone pressing on your side and telling you hey your not contracting the muscle. Understanding the muscle your working on and the equipment your using can help you prevent injury and improve your workout routine. #muscles #fitnessjourney #backday #fitnessmotivation #fitgirl #weightlossjourney #iliketoknowthings #latpulldown #weightloss #fitness #mindmuscleconnection
For best muscle development you want to stretch fully at the top motion and squeeze when contacting your back👍🏻
A lot of people don’t go full range of motion and sometimes that could cause a muscle to develop short and not long @metroflexgym_murrieta
Gotta get that EXTENSION!
FALLING INTO THE WEEK LIKE... 🤳🏻
Almost forgot I tried this out... just an FYI, I'm going too fast lol
This is called a #glutehamraise
on a #latpulldown
Adjust knees together on the seat with ankles under the support. You can use a #bosuball
like I am doing on here to help soften your landing.
As you can see this is new to me so I am just trying to get comfortable with this exercise here.
Ideally you come down super slow controlling your weight and feeling that stretch and contraction on the hamstrings and glutes. Nonetheless I still felt it 🤷🏻♂️
Save it, try it! #triponfitness
Why is society battling an epidemic of orthopedic issues? We’ve lost our ability to do fundamental moves skills such as crawling. Here’s how to rebuild the crawl and fight injury: LINK IN BIO
