Bonez - You too are very right on the lats , They grow fast but they look very high , my wrestler friends lats start from the hips and mine just look demented. For focusing on my lower lats I’ve tryed applying close grip for lat pull downs and pulls up should I add more ?
Thanks for the criqitue finally Some solid advice and not crap from bodybuilding.com
btw bonez your upper back looks awesome! [/quote]
Well there isn’t anything you can do about the attachments. That just genetic. But you can do a few things to put some extra stress on the lower region of the lats.
Couple things I like to use:
Neutral close grip pulldowns. Bring the V-handle or whatever its called straight down. Not so much into the chest but more towards the floor. Pull through the elbows not with your biceps.
Supinated bent over rows. 45 degree angle at the hips. Pull to the bellybutton. Minimize using momentum until you develop a strong mind/muscle connection in the spot youre targeting.
Supinated seated rows with a straight bar. Hands a bit more than shoulder width and pull to just above the hips.
Getting a good stretch at the top of the movement and a good contraction at the bottom are the two most important things when working the back. Half reps will give half the results.
