    Trainer showed me a cable exercise that's my new favorite lat exercise. I seem to feel it a lot and get DOMS the next day in my rear delts. Anybody else do this lat cable crossover exercise? If so, do you like the posterior delt workout? My only concern is that the delts are weaker than the lats and maybe limit how much I can pulldown.

    Too late. I just got back from the gym and did 7 sets of them. For now my delts feel extremely swole. Tomorrow (and through the rest of the week) they'll probably be sore as fuck. icon_lol.gif

    Oh, you should be fine. Just as long as you don't need to change your shirt or anything. Or reach for something. Or lift your arms. icon_neutral.gif

    Sounds as if it's best to start with less weight to acclimate to the exercise....

    Not really...not near as sore as I thought I'd be, but I can sure feel the tightness.
    I wanted to be sore as fuck. icon_lol.gif

    That's true for any new exercise. I was doing sets of 20, and a couple sets of 8.

    Great suggestion!! I’ll have to try that one in my next lifting session. I’ll have to throw down an update when I do. Thanks for sharing!

    Love it. I like to do them while on my laying on my back because it gives me a wider range of motion. It can be hard to pull off logistically, but you feel it burn like crazy, and it feels awesome.

    For those who do these cross-over lat pulldowns, I'm curious how many sets/reps and with how much weight? Do you do them on the back day with more common back exercises, like traditional lat pulldowns, pull ups, barbell rows, etc.?

    I do this exercise as part of my main routine. Definitely recommend it on back days.
