How to Do Seated Alternating Lat Pulldown
Be sure the weight on both sides is equal, as some machines are set up differently. Also, keep your back in natural alignment, your head in a neutral position, and your feet planted the entire time.
Beginning Alternating Lat Pulldown
Grasp each individual handle firmly and line up your wrist, elbows, and shoulders with the cables to ensure proper form.
Alternating Lat Pulldown Movement
1. From the starting position described, draw your naval or belly button towards your spine to tighten your core for stabilization.
2. Being sure to keep your spine in natural alignment and head in a neutral position, begin the exercise by pulling one elbow straight down towards your hip.
3. Complete the entire movement with one arm by allowing the weight to slowly return to its starting position, check your spine and head position and initiate the movement with the opposite arm.
