How to Do One-Handed Lat Pulldowns

  • Sit down with your thighs under the leg support, grasp the handle with one hand, keep your chest up, and look slightly up.
  • Inhale and pull the handle towards your side.
  • Exhale and slowly return the handle until your arm is extended again.


Lat pulldowns train both your lats and arm flexors effectively. By training one side at a time, you are enabled to focus more on each sides muscles in turn.
