STRENGTH TRAINING MACHINE DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 7A: STRAIGHT-ARM LAT PULL-DOWN
This exercise (Figure 6-40) is performed the same as the lat pull-down, however, the range of motion is much less. The elbows remain fully extended and the arms straight, as the resistance is lowered and when the resistance is raised. As the Soldier’s range of motion improves, he may employ the single-arm lat pull-down to maintain a heavy resistance on the good side and/or to reduce the resistance on the injured side.
