Lat pull down rules


Lat pull down rules

Competitors need to ensure that three things are done correctly.

Firstly that their arms are extended and not bent at the elbow at the top of the range of lat pull down movement.

Secondly they must bring the bar down to just below the level of their chin for a full repetition to count.

Thirdly they must not lean excessively back during the downward phase of the pull down. More than a 10 degree lean will mean the repetition is not counted by your judge. You can stop at any time and take a rest.
