PERFORM BETTER TRACTION OR MAKE THE MACHINE LAT? Let's find out together
One of the questions I am often made during my personal trainer and advice in Catania ':
Better to do chin-free body or use the LAT machine MACHINE?
The tractions are an exercise not to everyone for this, me, and what I always say 'depends:
We analyze two key aspects in the training of back:
1) motor aspect
2) muscular appearance
from a motor point of view the answer is absolutely no muscle while from the point of view the answer is yes.
WHY? Let's find out
because not everyone is able to perform pull-ups for several reasons why the use of the machine only serves only to increase the level of strength, improve the quality of the movement and especially the technique obtaining an exercise preparatory to actual tractions which will be made once all these parameters have obtained good results.
From a point of view and biomechanical muscle exercises the two differ only and exclusively fixed movement.
I ADD THAT:
If we focus instead on the abdominal muscles, here the question changes radically. That tractions in fact is the need both to raise their own body weight and especially to maintain the physiological curves, makes the abdominal activity becomes more prominent as to obtain an optimal trajectory and functional as well as having a fluid and aesthetically movement pleasant.
Simply put pulldowns will have a minor motor control caused by a minor operation of the muscles, which is why it is particularly suitable for those beginning. Then if we want to learn to do pull-ups this must be done by executing a load progression that leads us in the time to perform a complete movement ranges from 180 degrees to zero degrees elbow.
