Technogym Selection MED Lat Machine MED

Depending on the position you choose, with Lat Machine MED you can train various muscles in the upper part of the body in an even safer and more comfortable way.

Lat Machine MED is part of Selection MED, an EEC 93/42 and TÜV certified line dedicated to strength training in the fields of rehabilitation and sport.
To satisfy the requirements of these certifications, it features:

  • new protection systems and explanatory stickers applied at various points on the equipment to help users avoid accidents or entrapping their fingers;
  • components that help you access the machine more simply and enjoy a safer and better controlled workout, even at the beginning of the rehabilitation process or when gradually recovering functionality after a sports injury.

What’s it for?

Lat Machine MED is a product you can use to perform exercises similar to pull-ups, but with less load than your full body weight. Depending on how you arrange your torso and hands, you can choose different trajectories that stimulate the muscles of your arms or your lats. Used correctly and repeatedly, it can:

  • strengthen the lats and abdominals, the long head of the triceps and the posterior deltoid, the pectoralis major, and the middle fibers of the trapezius;
  • prevent and treat joint problems in the elbow;
  • tone and work your biceps as well.

What is Lat Machine MED like?

To help you get into the correct the position right from the beginning, the bar you need to pull is ergonomic and is moulded to help improve your grip and reduce the pressure on the palm of your hand while working out.

The weight you lift is transmitted directly, without intervening cams and variable geometry arms. This makes beginning the exercise immediate and intuitive.

How is it used?

Sit down and rest your thighs under the padded rollers. Grab the bar symmetrically, placing your hands on the moulds provided and making sure that your arms stay in line with your shoulders. Pull the bar downward and always keep your back straight.

After selecting the right adjustments for you, with your hands at your chest extend your spinal column forward, pivoting against the backrest. To avoid creating excessive load on your overall musculature, do not push with your feet and try not to bend past 90°.
