How To Exercise Latissimus Dorsi?

How do you work your latissimus dorsi at home? Wrap a band around a sturdy object in front of you and step back until you feel tension on the band. Tip from the hips, knees slightly bent and abs in, keeping the arms straight. Stand up and, at the same time, pull the elbows to torso level in a rowing motion. Release and repeat for 12-16 reps.

What are 3 exercises that workout the latissimus dorsi? You will need a dumbbell and/or a kettlebell and a resistance band with handles.

Which exercise targets the latissimus dorsi? Sit in the lat pull-down machine with your legs beneath the padding. Grasp the bar with both arms extended, keeping your back straight. Slowly pull the bar down towards your chest, pause, then allow the bar to rise again under control – the release is just as important as the pulling phase.
