Purpose of Exercise:
TO DEVELOP THE THICKNESS OF THE BACK AND THE LOEWR LATS.

This movement also works the lower sections of the lats.

Execution:
Take hold of the handles and sit with your feet braced against the crossbar or a wooden block, knees slightly bent. Extend your arms and bend forward slightly, feeling the lats stretch. You should be situated far enough away from the weight stack so that you can stretch like this without the weight touching bottom.

From this beginning position, pull the handles back toward your body and touch them to your abdomen, feeling the back muscles doing most of the work. Your back should archm your chest stick out, and try to touch the shoulder blades together as you draw the weight toward you.

Warning:
Don’t involve the lower back muscles by swaying forward and back, when the handles touch your abdomen you should be sitting upright, not leaning backward.
Keeping the weight under control, release and let the handles go forward again, once more stretching out the lats.
