This is something I've been curious of: What will going wider with the pull-down do? Is it necessary to build a thick physique? I noticed it really restricts my range of motion and feels like it hits my biceps more, but I imagine that I'd get better results from bringing my arms in closer, as that gives a full range of motion.

Anyone with knowledge on this topic? I do four variations of pull-downs on back day (supinated-grip, close-grip, single-handed, and regular), plus my rows. I'm just wondering if I should incorporate some wide-grip, for any purpose.

second bump

I would say overhand thumbless wide grip Lat pulldown. Make sure you squeeze your shoulder blades before you start the movement. You feel it in your biceps cause they are doing a slow elongation. This could be from placement, focusing the wrong muscle, or too much weight and doing whatever you can do the motion.

Nah, the fullest range of motion is best.

Another good movement is halting deadlift, find the rippetoe video for them.

Most importantly, eat more.

Found an article after a quick search. Apparently, more lat activation with overhanded grips, whether wide or narrow, so it would seem a close-handed overhand grip would yield the best results. Underhands are useful for anyone with shoulder issues, however.

Well thank ya. I haven't taken the time to look into it because this method has worked well for me so far.

I've never heard you should retract your shoulder blades for the lat pulldown.

Limited mobility and more shoulder involvement

Ditch pull downs and do pull ups instead.

Wide overhand grips works your lower traps more if done right. Thats why you feel your lats working more with a close underhand grip

I go past shoulder width with suicide grip. No thumb, using the fingers like a claw and pulling with my back rather than my arms.
