    Start doing bent over rows at 90deg to the floor, puling the weight from the floor each rep and watch your lats grow.

    Definitely under-hand grip chins are the best. If hard, do negatives using a stool. If easy use a wide grip with added weights.

    Re: Lats..I need Help?

    I'm not going to claim to have the best back ever.... but i've built a good size one.

    From:
    "Free weight" high pull row machine (back in the day used to do it ALOT)
    Deadlifts (more recently made it apart of my routines)
    Seated rows
    I do zero pull ups/pull downs

    Huge proponent of rowing movements... bent over rows too, ect.

    Re: Lats..I need Help?

    Thanks for your help guys..My routine looks like this. I warm up with some over hand pull ups about shoulder lenth or a little wider. I then do pulldowns overhand on a wide bar 4 sets. the 1st set about 10 and then Increase weight. Then 4 sets of low rows same as pulldowns. Then one arm rows...

    Heavy barbell rows as mentioned above with low reps.

    And if your gym doesn't have one already, buy a belt to do weighted underhand chins with a medium grip. Again heavy and low reps.
