So i recently started using a closer grip on my lat pull downs, i grab the bar right at the corner of the bend (slightly wider than shoulder width) instead of grabbing the bar right on the bend…
This helps to overload my lats with a lot more weight than I would normally be able to use as well as targets my lats more in the range of motion. This also takes a lot of pressure off elbows and biceps overall.
Jonnie Candito also trains like this and said it is more effective way than wider gripping, he stated that wider grips do not give you a wider lat spread it will only give you those minuscule details the judges really look for in competitions.
So what are your ideas on this?
