The neutral-grip lat pull-down is a variation on the lat pull-down that uses a handle with a neutral (palms facing in) grip. This arrangement helps to build lat width and target the upper lats. This movement is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 per set or higher, as part of an upper-body or back-focused workout.
