This is your starting position.Pull the weight in towards the bench right onto the center of it as if you were pulling it into your mid-stomach area. Then, release the weight back towards the starting position.

This is a great exercise for shaping your lats. It's not for building mass. Thus, if your goal is to pack slabs of muscle onto your lats you should do exercises that involve the use of barbells and dumbbells.

One pre-requisite for executing this movement correctly is to set up the bench properly. This means placing it at the right distance from the weight stack in front. Ideally you want the bench back far enough so that when your arms are fully extended there is still at least a foot of space remaining between your palms and weight stack.
