Lat machines provide an efficient and varied road to stronger back and shoulder muscles. With most of these machines, you are seated on a padded platform within reach of a pulldown bar connected by cables and pulleys to dead weight. Cables are changed or not, depending on the model, to enable different exercises. Hold-down pads for feet and knees provide stability and resistance.
Exercises you can choose from include lat pulls, seated rows, upright rows, and triceps extensions. Your grip on the lat bar can range from narrow to wide in order to maximize muscle development
When you are shopping for a lat machine, consider the range of exercises you want, the ease of moving from exercise type to type, the capacity of the weight bars or size of the weight stack, ease of pull-pin adjustments and the quality of the materials.
For targeted upper body development in a stable, safe and flexible exercise environment, choose the lat machine that's right for you.
