Overview

The barbell pullover is an exercise that targets the latissimus dorsi, or lats, muscles. It is performed by lying on a bench with your feet flat on the floor and a barbell held above your chest with your arms extended. You then lower the bar behind your head until it is just above your shoulder blades, before returning to the starting position. The barbell pullover is a challenging exercise, but it is also very effective for building muscle mass and strength in the lats.
