1. Lat pulldowns

This straightforward exercise develops the back, arm, and abdominal muscles through a similar range of motion as a traditional pull-up on a bar.

Lat pulldowns

Ten repetitions should be performed with a weight that is comfortable for you.

2. Seated cable rows

This exercise is conducted on a horizontal, as opposed to a vertical, weighted cable machine.

3. Straight-arm pulldowns

Using a greater range of motion, this variation of lat pulldowns predominantly targets the middle and upper back muscles.

This exercise differs from other variations of rowing in that it also challenges the abdominal and lower body.

5. Face pulls
