Tube Lat Pulldowns - Resistance Band Lat Pulls

The lat pull down is one of the most basic compound exercises. If you don't have access a high cable pulley set-up you can easily set up lat pulls with resistance bands. In order to make create a lat pull down rather than a high row, try to have the resistance band anchored as high as possible. You may have to kneel on the ground to get enough distance and resistance from the bands.

The biggest obstacle to this exercise is actually setting it up. Unless you have adjustable heavy resistance bands and/or a very high anchoring point it is not going to be possible to get enough resistance. If you aren't able to get a good enough position and resistance you can opt to do these prone resistance band lat pulls on a stability ball.

If you can get a good resistance band setup for this exercise it is great for any part of your resistance band full body workout. If you are using resistance bands in conjunction with other gym equipment you may want to use these lat pull downs for an exercise that hits the lats later in the workout when they are already fatigued from other cable, dumbbell and barbell exercises.
