12. Circuit Series Lat Pulldown (TCPD) Muscles Exercised - Latissimus Dorsi and Biceps Setup Engage appropriate resistance. Stand and grip bar in desired position, then pull down and sit with thighs under roller pads. Upper body is positioned leaning slightly forward from the hips, pulling directly over shoulders. TIP: Attempt to stabilize the body without the use of the thigh pads until necessary. TIP: The ideal grip position on the handle positions the hands as far out as possible, but still allows the elbows to contact the sides of the body in the down position during the exercise. This ensures a full range of motion. Performing the Exercise: With a controlled motion, draw down the handles directly over the shoulders until hands reach shoulder height, then extend the handles up until arms are fully extended. Return the handles to the start position and repeat the motion without letting the resistance rest. Maintain proper body positioning throughout exercise. TIP: While performing the exercise think about lifting the chest to the handles as opposed to pulling the bar down. This will re-enforce the correct exer- cise position and increases the mental concentration on the Latissimus Dorsi.

2. Circuit Series 1. Safety It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser of LIFE FITNESS products to read the owner's manual, warning labels and instruct all individuals, whether they are the end user or supervising personnel on proper usage of the equipment. It is recommended that all users of LIFE FITNESS exercise equipment be informed of the following information prior to its use. LIFE FITNESS recommends that all commercial fitness equipment be used in a supervised area. It is recommended that the equipment be located in an access controlled area. Control is the responsibility of the facility owner. The extent of control is at the discretion of the owner. PROPER USAGE 1. Do not use any equipment in any way other than designed or intended by the manufacturer. It is imperative that weight stack machines as well as any other LIFE FITNESS equipment are used properly to avoid injury. 2. Keep hands and feet clear at all times from moving parts to avoid injury. CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS 1. DO NOT use any equipment that is damaged and or has worn or broken parts. Use only replacement parts supplied by LIFE FITNESS . 2. MAINTAIN LABELS AND NAMEPLATES: Do not remove labels for any reason. They contain important information. If unreadable or missing, contact LIFE FITNESS for a replacement. 3. SECURING EQUIPMENT: All equipment MUST be secured to a solid, level surface to stabilize and eliminate rocking or tipping over. This must be performed by a licensed contractor. 4. MAINTAIN ALL EQUIPMENT: Preventative maintenance is the key to smooth operating equipment as well as keeping your liability to a mini- mum. Equipment needs to be inspected at regular intervals. 5. Ensure that any person(s) making adjustments or performing maintenance or repair of any kind is qualified to do so. LIFE FITNESS will provide service and maintenance training at our corporate facility upon request or in the field if proper arrangements are made. SPECIFIC OPERATING WARNINGS 1. Routinely inspect all accessory clips that join attachments to the cables and replace at the first sign of wear. 2. Use only weight selector pins supplied by LIFE FITNESS on weight stacks. Substitutes are forbidden. 3. Cables pose an extreme liability if used when frayed. Always replace any cable at first sign of wear (consult LIFE FITNESS if uncertain). 4. Do not allow users to wear loose fitting clothing while using equipment. It is also recommended to have users secure long hair back and up to avoid contact with moving parts. 5. Fully insert weight selector pins. Partial insertion can cause weights to fall unexpectedly. Never pin the weight stack in an elevated position. Never remove selector pin if any weights are suspended. Never attempt to release jammed weights or parts. 6. When adjusting any seat, knee hold down pad, range of motion limiter, foothold pad or any other type of adjuster, make certain that the adjusting pin is fully engaged in the hole to avoid injury. 7. It is the purchaser's sole responsibility to properly instruct its end users and supervising personnel as to the proper operating procedures of all LIFE FITNESS equipment. 8. Keep children away from selectorized strength equipment. Parent or others supervising children must provide close supervision of children if the equipment is used in the presence of children.
