Free-Weight Substitute/Alternative To: Lat Pulldown (Lat Towers & Hammer Strength Isometric High Row)
Main Muscles Worked: Latissimus Dorsi, Trapezius, Rhomboid, Deltoid, Bicep.
Instructions: Doing lat pulldowns with the Spud Inc system is a little different than using a lat tower in the gym. As you can see in the video below, you have to create a bit of distance between you and the loaded weight. Given the proper attachments, this is a very affordable way to get cable access at home and to hit not only the lats, but other muscle groups that benefit from cable work as well.
Comments: It is possible to recreate a nearly perfect lat machine in your garage gym, and I give some guidance on ways to going about that in this article.
