Straight Arm Cable Pull Down Exercise Benefits : The latissimus dorsi muscle, which runs the length of your back, is the primary target of the cable pulldown.2 Developing this large back muscle can give a desired look to the torso as well as building strength. The synergistic muscles involved are the pecs of the chest, the triceps, deltoids, rhomboids, and levator scapulae. The muscles that work to stabilize the move are the triceps, pectoralis major, wrist flexors, and the abdominal muscles: rectus abdominis and obliques. The compound motion is one used in daily life for tasks as simple as drawing the blinds. Learning to engage your abs when pulling will help you develop core stability. #backworkout #latsworkout #fitnessmotivation #pulldowns #fitness #exercise #benefit #trainhard #keepgoing #healthylifestyle
