Lat Pulldown Low Row Machine: What You Need To Know


Some workouts have overlapping benefits and secondary muscle activation. This type of movement includes the lat pulldown and the low row exercises. Both of them are staples in training programs that focus on full-back development. When it comes to a major muscle group like the back, you should stop overworking and instead concentrate on the most effective option.

The question is, which is better? Low rows or lat pull-downs? We are going to discuss that in this article and find out how you can have the best of both in the world of strength training in one piece of equipment!

The lat pulldown is a compound back exercise that involves pulling a weight from above your head to your chest. It's similar to a pull-up, however instead of lifting your body up to a bar, you pull a bar down to your body.

The low row is a “pull-in” exercise which is usually done on a horizontal line of resistance. It's also a compound exercise that is commonly used in building the mid and upper back muscles, as well as the biceps and rear deltoid heads. Even though both the lat pulldown and the seated row are cable machine-based workouts, they are commonly performed on two different kinds of equipment - and this requires a decision for most home gym owners.

As a result, the Bells of Steel Lat Pulldown Low Row Machine was developed. This equipment was intended to make switching between pulldowns and rows as seamless as possible. You may incorporate a variety of lat pulldown and cable row variations in just one station without taking up too much space in your home gym.

The Bells of Steel Lat Pulldown Low Row Machine is a solid, sturdy black powder coated cable row machine which has a 310lb weight stack along with a band accessory for extra resistance. It's also pin-loaded which allows you to shift between the 10lb weight increments in a breeze — just pick your weight.

The sleek silver aluminum pulleys with a larger diameter give a nicer aesthetic and offer better durability that allows an overall cable capacity of 550lbs. The seats were built to stand the test of time. High-density foam was used in this product so it's comfortable, durable, and functional.

The Lat Pulldown Low Row Machine is also rack attachment friendly, which means you can use our Lever Arms, Y-Dip, and Landmine attachments because there are holes for them. You may also add some extra weight plates for optional accessory lifts. But no worries, a basic lat bar and band pegs are included so until you decide to upgrade, you'll still get the job done.

If you have long arms, the 61-inch clearance between the seat and the cable's carabiner allows you to adjust the lat bar. You can enjoy full pulldowns giving your back muscles a deep stretch. Moreover, the assembling of this machine is quite simple and will take you no more than an hour and maybe an extra set of hands to put it together. You can check out our assembly instructions here.
