I've gotten great results putting beef on my back doing BB rows, band pull-aparts, and tons of heavy deadlifts in all different kinds of variations: RDLs, SLDLs, speed DLs, and just plain ol' heavy-assed deadlifts. Power cleans done for speed seem to tax the hell out of my back and after adding those I've grown a lot on my upper back and my spinal erectors
Not a bad idea by "bear." I don't see why you can't continue the programs after your vacation time is up. You could also follow the other two with CT's Power Look program.
I feel that back thickness is also more visible as one becomes leaner in terms of the details that one can see, so keep that in mind whenever you choose to lean out. On a very muscular person, it is still evident from the rear even at higher BF percentages.
Look at DaFreak's in season and out of season pics and you can see that the thickness is still evident (particularly in the upper traps- because they stick out more) but much more impressive in his leaner state. Good luck and keep us posted. -MAtt
So my advice would be, improve your weak points first. Why bother with something that is already nicely developed compared to other parts. A lot of guys, who are only into curling and benching, have similar problems. Good Tits, solid arms but pathetic thighs and weak calves. Instead of working on their squat, they become obsessed to move more iron on the bench. Which often won't lead to big gains in the long run. For me, improving my weak points always had a good effect on my overall training.
thanks for your input, but now i've a question, any method i can improve my back thickness, without building up my upper traps? CT's triple threat focused on Deadlift, that will build up my back thickness + upper traps...
