I did my fair share of dead lifts and rows. My favorite exercise is bent over rows but it doesn't give me the width I was looking for.
I.honestly think more important than the exercise selection was my diet and the frequency of my workouts. 3 days a week in the gym for about an hour
I don't eat much either. 3 meals, no supplements except caffeine. Lots of dairy, eggs and chicken is what I mostly eat. High protein high fat low carbs. Only real carbs i eat is fruit in my shake in the morning. Keeps the fat off and i.still.build muscle. I lost a bit around my mid section.
Currently I eat
Morning Shake: 1 cup liquid egg whites, 1 cup cottage cheese, strawberries, banana
Lunch: Almonds, cheese, greek yogurt
Dinner: Chicken, spinach, milk
