How do YOU get your back wider/thicker!

I posted this thread to see how other members get their wider/thicker back. Ex. pullups, pulldowns, wide grip, weighted, etc!







This is not a thread to ask how to get q wider/thicker back. Do not be confused for a beginner thread.

This wasn't a question on how TO build wider/thicker lats. It was a question on how YOU build wider lats. Everyone is different. I wanted to see what everyone says. I removed it so I do not get in trouble for posting it in the 'wrong forum'.

Dude...I HAD to post that. Just joking around.

I get the best results from any overhead pulls with various grips. Chins are my favorite. Pronated wide grip to the front and supinated close grip to the front seem to target them the most.

Another good one for me is Dorian Yates style supinated barbell rows. You really have to focus on the contraction to get the effect, however.

Yeah. I hope i didn't sound like a dick too... Just been seeing comments from the mods about posting topics in the appropriate forums.

For thickness, heavy barbell rows and deadlifts. For width, wide grip pulldowns and I also like close grip hammer strength pulldowns with an underhand grip

In the thread titled "professionalmuscle" Bboy mentioned what he did to get his back the way it is. Very simple answer!

any form of pull up

a v bar grip, hammer grip, t bar grips, reverse grip, chinup grip etc

any pull up requiring a wider grip does not give you wider lats, its just places more weight on ur rear deltoids,

ud get wider lats doing reverse grip pull ups, then you would from doing wide pull ups

I think this is the most appropriate reply to these continued beginner posts(even after being banned) on an ADVANCED BOARD :rolleyes:

Although it is a step up from wishing YOURSELF Happy Birthday on the board.:eek:

Agree w/ this, also the wider you get the more prone to shoulder injury.:yeahthat:

heavy bent barbell rows overhand are great - width and thickness

if you want an intense lat workout maybe try a drop set. chins until failure then another set or 2 of strict pulldowns, each time dropping the weight. go to failure on all your sets

Undergrip, shoulder-width, weighted chins, bar to the lower sternum, leaning back as far as possible.
