Single-arm pull-down

The single-arm pull-down is a variation on the lat pull-down that is performed one arm at a time, usually with a D-shaped handle and a cable stack. Many lifters find they can feel the lat (latissimus dorsi) muscles working better with single-arm variations.


  1. Targets the latissimus dorsi muscles
  2. Hits more of the lower-lat muscle fibers than the bar handle version
  3. Allows for greater range of motion than the bar handle version
