There is nothing more impressive than wide flaring lats, which add inches to your back measurements. So lets get going and get that V shape taper. With these back exercises
Exercise 1 Wide Grip Chins
For this back exercise you will need a suspended chinning bar. Grasp the bar with an overhand grip, hands shoulder width apart. Hang from the bar with your arms fully extended and feet crossed. Then pull strongly with your arms and back until your chin is above the level of the bar, hold for a second and then lower to the starting position. Repeat 10 times for a maximum of 4 sets.
Exercise 2 Bent Over Rows
For this back exercise you will need a weighted barbell. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, hands shoulder width apart also. Keep your back parallel with the floor. Raise the barbell off the floor and pull up until the barbell touches your abs, then lower to the starting position. Do 8 to 10 reps and 4 sets increasing the weight each time.
Exercise 3 Single Arm Rows
For this back exercise you need a heavy dumbbell. Lean forward so that your back is parallel with the floor resting one arm and a knee on a bench. Grasp the dumbbell with the other arm using an overarm grip. Starting with your arm fully extended, raise the dumbbell right up to your side tensing the lats as you do so then return to the starting position. Do 8 to 10 reps for 3 sets with each arm.
