Funny you should mention it - I've adjusted my training to include two back workouts per week, one focusing on primarily thickness movements (deadlifts and various rows), the other on width movements (pull up and pull-down variations). I've noticed a marked improvement so far.
I placed third in men's heavyweight, which qualified me for nationals for this year and next.
Thanks, Stu. As mentioned above, I've divided my back into two separate workouts. My 'width' workout starts with 20 minutes of bodyweight chins, which usually equates to 11-12 total sets. I'm confident the pics I post from the year's show will display a wider and more dense back. As for the height, trust me, I realize I have to step on stage at no less than 260 lbs completely peeled in order to look more 'filled out.'
I've been lifting weights since my senior year in high school, but never ate with the purpose to achieving results. I started to become conscious of my nutrition and supplement intake for the last five and half years. I went from 185 lbs to a high of 311 lbs and a stage weight of 247 lbs since that time.
