Depends on how you do you it, but it can be used to hit your back (lats) or triceps if you add in a press. I've read it helps with the chest, but I've never personally felt it in my chest...
If you want it to hit your lats then pull it over very close to your body and fairly far down your torso.
Triceps pull it about even with your forehead and then press.
You can also youtube the exercise for more precise form explanations
edit- you can also use a dumbbell, which I prefer to use.
