Tip: Build Better Lats With Cable Pullovers

Here's how to take this old school upper-body builder and make it work even better.

This is a great exercise for lats, and you'll even get some chest work.

  • Place a bench in front of a low cable setup. You can use a rope attachment or a short bar.
  • The key is to use a very wide arc as you pull the bar or rope over your body. Push the bar away from you.
  • Pause at the bottom portion of the movement and squeeze the lats hard.
