Medium-grip pulldowns is a popular strength-training exercise that targets the upper back muscles, specifically the latissimus dorsi, teres major, and rhomboids. The exercise is performed using a cable machine with a wide bar attached to the cable. To perform the exercise, the individual begins by sitting on the bench with their feet flat on the ground and their back straight, and grabs the bar with an overhand grip, hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. The individual then pulls the bar down towards their chest, while keeping their elbows close to their body. The motion is controlled, and the bar is lowered back up to the starting position with control. Medium-grip pulldowns can be done with various weights and reps, depending on the individual's strength and fitness goals. It is a great exercise for improving upper body strength and posture, as well as for toning and strengthening the upper back muscles. Variations to the exercise can also be done, such as using different grips or handles on the cable machine, or adjusting the attachment of weights to the cable machine. It is important to keep proper form and control during the exercise to avoid injury and to get the maximum benefit from the exercise.
