Is it the overcrowding at the gym? If so, they're actually solving the problem for others by not showing up. Maybe it is motivation. Have you seen results yet? If not, or if they aren't the results you are hoping for, that can also contribute to the pause in your gym visits. Remember, progress happens at different rates for everyone, so don't give up too quickly!

Lat Pulldowns and Upper Body Strength

Posted on Jan 12, 2015 8:28:19 AM

In October we talked a lot about cardio and endurance training on the Arc Trainer, so today we are going to focus on strength training again with pulldowns on the Eagle NX.

What activities use the lats?

The lat pulldown works the latissimus dorsi, the largest muscle in the back, as well as your biceps, rear delts, rhomboids and traps. This movement gives you the opportunity to train many muscles at the same time, and develop overall strength in your back and upper body.

These muscles play an important role in posture, as well as allowing you to develop pulling strength, and pull yourself up and over an object, like you would do in activities like rock climbing.
