    gorilla grip pull-ups.


    as many as you can do.

    if you can do too many, then weight your legs.

    behind the neck lat pulldowns can cause injury pretty fast, especially if form is off and weight is too high.... I usually stick to front lat pulldowns, both wide grip and close grip.... also do reverse close grip pull downs.... throw in some chins, cable rows / bent over rows

    Re: Best Lat Excercises

    Thanks guys. I have been trying all of the above listed and have had some nice development, just wondering if anyone had any other exercises in mind. I didn't think so. I do not do enough wide grip pull ups. I am going to add those tonight though.

    Re: Best Lat Excercises

    Some smith machine manufacturers claim that using a wider or closer grip is not necessarily better, it just decreases your range of motion. There is usually a sticker on the latpulldown machine that says that; and it makes sense.

    This is by far the best exercise for acheiving the V-shape. Simplify your back routine. A lot of those exercises listed above are the same movement. Here is what I have done for years and my back is one of my best muscles:

    Deads
    Weighted Wide Pullups
    Weighted Narrow Pullups
    BB Rows

    Throw in some hypers at the end and you got yourself a simple, yet punishing back routine.
