Thanks for your input guys....the assignment is kind of like homework i guess in that i am studying for my fitness instructor qualification and it s part of a practical assessment i have to plan and instruct!
So in your opinion is the lat pulldown better for the 'general population' beginner/intermediate or the seated row?!
Sorry but i have heard such different reactions i am getting confused!
Hi Jessica. Looks like you're getting good advice, so I'm just going to address your question of lat pull vs seated row. Well, the back is very complex, and provides for a multitude of functions, i.e, keep the erectors upright, shoulder girdle elevation, scapula retraction, to name just a few of the major ones. To cover all that, you need exercises to address the specific movements. Comparing lat pulls. cjins/pullups to rows are like comparing apples to oranges, although some of the target muscles do overlap. IMHO,use both, or at least alternate them session to session.
