I would love to hear you Lat Workouts, Lat Exercises and Lat Training Tips. I have always had the hardest time getting my lats sore and recently have been able to stimulate them by exagerating a very foreful contraction and really squeezing the heck out of them. Even still though, it is not as consistant as I would like it to be. I think part of it has to do with how I am built/put together. I have small joints and long limbs; not sure how or even if this would affect my lat training?

So if peeps could post techniques,lat workouts, training concepts and tips for lats.

Exactly ATW, pullups are king for lats. Also try close grip underhand pulldowns.

Squats
Deadlifts
Barbell Rows Wide Grip
Cable Rows Wide Grip with long straight bar
Wide Grip Pullups
Wide Grip Pulldowns
T- Bar Rows with Handle Bars
Palm Down Grip On Hammer Rows

But I'm a Powerlifter and think one that is a Bodybuilder needs to mix the grips up a lot more then we do.

In Powerlifting it has been a standard train of thought to do back work in the same plain as a bench movement but your pulling not pressing.

Oh and I always say squats and deads because if you do both correct your whole body is feeling it I can't tell you how many time I got done squatting and said damn my chest feels like it just got worked and it's because it did.

I always feel back on squats and deads always and not just low but the whole back.

You know the saying you want a bigger chest squat and pull you want a bigger back squat and pull.

I just hate it when I hear a dude bitch about the body and growth and you ask what do you do for legs and it's Leg Press and Extension well there's your reason why LOL.

barbell rows, tbar rows, wide grip pulldowns, underhand close grip pulldowns, cable rows, dumbell rows, pullups (not all at once). i switch between a "week 1" and "week 2" workout for all bodyparts in order to mix it up a little and hit em from every angle
