Latissimus dorsi muscle (lat), broadest muscle of the back, is one of the widest muscles in the human body. It is a very thin triangular muscle that is not used strenuously in common daily activities but is an important muscle in many exercises such as pull-ups, chin-ups, lat pulldowns, and swimming.

Latissimus dorsi is responsible for extension, adduction, transverse extension, flexion from an extended position, and (medial) internal rotation of the shoulder joint.

Lat can be trained with a variety of different exercises such as

  • Vertical pulling movements e.g. pull-downs, pull-ups.
