Body Position Trick for Pulldowns to Feel Your Lats Working

When doing both pulldowns and chin-ups, it's important to puff out the chest and lean slightly back.

The lats cannot fire efficiently when the chest and lower back are flat/vertical, i.e. straight up and down, the way most people do pulldowns and chins.
