Hi there, I've got a problem increasing my weight on the lat pull downs and it's mostly related to higher rep work but it does effect things when I'm going with heavier weight.
It's most pronounced when I do suppinated pull downs but it doesn't really feel like muscular tiredness or pain, it feels like something is being pulled. I guess I'd say it's what I'd imagine tendon/ligament pain to be like rather than muscular soreness.
I'm doing pull downs for 5x5 @ 80kg and 4x10 @ 70kg and it's usually at the end of the last sets that it's problematic.
I'm guessing the answer is to strengthen the forearms as it really is limiting my back work. In no way is my back limiting these movements.
I really don't want to resort to straps.
So what would be the most effective way to improve my forearms for these exercises, or things to watch on my grip when doing the pull downs? I'm not looking ot build my forearms persee, just looking to bring them up to handle whats necessary for back work.
