I’ve started using the Nautilus pullover machine as a back excercise. Appreciate the way it seem to isolate the lats. A great invention. Works wonders after Darden’s exhaustive “Skinny arm cure” specialization - after which I obviously can’t make a proper inroad on chinups or lat pulldown.
My question is whether the dumbbell (barbell?) pullover is an alternative to the machine version? Have tested it years ago, though not made any serious attempt (as I can remember I didn’t like the “feel” of it back then). Arnold and his friends seemed to love it back in the day…
The information I have gathered proves that it is also, or even more so, an excercise for the chest. If so, I regard this a positive observation, since it may also be useful after depleting the triceps - as well as a nice add-on for chest (similar to the agonism with dips).
Please tell me your thoughts on this.
