A good isolation exercise for the lat is one arm pulldowns. I sit on a low bench or box under the cable crossover. Pulldown and slightly arch your body to the side at the end of the movement to get a good contraction. Let me know if you understand what I am trying to say here.

Totally.....

I just did them today (on smith machine).

I too thought they would be uncomfortable, but they are AWESOME.

Probably the best chest pump i've gotten. Delts seem like they don't even get worked, upper chest was screaming!

I did them a few days ago and they made a stretch mark on my chest slightly longer  :( 
Definitely felt it all in the chest though, good pump.

Did crossovers first did about 8 sets on there, got a crazy pump.

Then did the bench to the neck! WOW!! totally isolates the chest i didnt feel it in my shoulders or tris or nothing, just UPPER CHEST! that was awesome.

Then i went and did a few sets of flyes got a maximum pump, then moved to triceps!!!

Great workout! thanx Jim, i really really felt my chest pump up with blood doing this.

Did you use the smith machine mate?

I know this was directed at Flexington, but i did them and i used the smith machine.

Felt fine, very good exercise.

I may try them on the free weight bench, but i would want someone spotting me on my heavier sets.
No doubt about it...

I tryed them a few years ago,but have a dodgy shoulder and found they agravated it a bit..

Id love to try them again but maybe will superset them with incline cable flyes first to pre exaust so that way ego doesnt tell me to add more plates when I really shouldnt  ;D

It's funny you say that they aggravated your delts, because the thing i noticed is that my delts felt like they were hardly getting worked at all...

Jim is there a higher risk of negative health with the consumption of a high fat( from eggs, steak, chicken thighs, etc.) high protein low carb diet long term?

Jim does it make u less of a fan of bodybuilding to see about 90% of the competitors at this years ironman show come in at 3-6 weeks out level of conditioning.

and did moe elmossawi ruin his physique with insulin use or can he correct it?? comparisons from this year and last year

honestly man Moe looks pretty good in the second shot, leads me to believe that he wasn't fully crunched down into the shot in the 1st pic, he definitely needed better color.

I don't think Moe has done anything different in preparing for this years IM than what he did last year.. However, last year he had troubles which caused him to drop some weight (flight delays/ dehydration) and as result (almost accidentally) that resulted in a better showing in 08. Check out last years corresponding interview on PBW (02/25/08)

I pretty much am not interested in these shows anymore. It is one of the reasons that I stopped training people. I am not a fan of what they are rewarding nowadays.
