Muscle Groups
  • Back
  • Latissimus dorsi (upper back muscles) strength.
  • Biceps strength.


The Pulldown w/Handles build strength and definition in the upper back muscles. Pulldowns are an appropriate substitute for beginners who can’t perform pull-ups or chin-ups. The pulldown activates the latissimus dorsi muscle which provides the sought after “V” taper bodybuilders desire most.


  • Set doors wide, adjust bench to flat position, swivel pulleys to a highest position and set resistance.
  • Grasp handles with palms facing out and sit on bench facing into machine.
  • Slightly retract shoulder blades and pull handles inward to top of chest; slowly return handles to start position and repeat.


  • Pulling the elbows too far behind the body instead of straight back and down.
  • Leaning back excessively.
  • Shrugging the shoulders up as you pull down.
