Any back workout that is geared at helping you build a bigger back must focus on two things. First, you need to improve the thickness front to back, but even then, you’re far from finished. No big back is complete without the noted v shape or v tapered lats that come from doing the right exercises.
In this video, I show you how to get a big wide back and thicker lats using the two best back exercises to get it done. One of these back exercises targets the lats while the other targets the often overlooked teres major muscle. The teres major, when developed, helps to spread your lats out and give you the appearance of a wider, larger back.
The only pieces of equipment you will need to do these back exercises is a pull-up bar and a resistance band. If you do this back workout in the gym you can use a cable pulley machine with either a rope attachment or a straight bar.
