i can get an extreme burn when i work them out and they will hurt for a few days but when i am in front of the mirror i cant get them to flair. it is aggravating because i see people a lot smaller than me flaring them like nothing.

Ironically, you have to relax your lats somewhat in order for them to flare. If you tighten them too much they will appear narrower than what they really are.

Try this: draw your four fingers into palms in shape of a fist, stick your thumbs out and place themon the outsides of your waist--above your hips but below ribcage--while contracting your back muscles (i.e. draw your elbows backwards).

Now draw your elbows/arms forward as far as you can by contracting your pecs--hard!--while relaxing your lats (Be sure and keep your thumbs in place on your waist).

If you have any lat development, they will pop right out.

i think i found another way to try and flex, stand up straight and keep your arms straight at your sides and try to touch your knees by pulling your arms down without bending them i cant do it without flexing my lats

I know what you are going through. When I first started lifting I couldnt flare out my lats. I just didnt have the muscle control yet, plus they weren't very big.

Try the hands on the hips method and keep on doing it, soon you will have the muscle control and keep at the pulldowns and rows!
