The latissimus dorsi is a triangular, flat muscle, which covers the lumbar region and the lower half of the trunk, and is gradually contracted into a narrow fasciculus at its insertion into the humerus.
To increase the power of this muscle, the muscle can be trained with the following exercises:
- pull-down (compound)
- bent-over row (compound)
- chin-up and pull-up (compound)
- pull-over (single-joint)
- dumbbell-rows (compound)
- Deadlift (compound)
