Anyone know of any good explosive movements for the uppper back? I know the olympic lifts and their variations hit the upper back pretty hard but I am looking for something more specific to the back and not as whole body.
So far all I can come up with is the clap pullup. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.[/quote]
I’m not quite sure what you are wanting to know. Clap pullups? why not regular pullups, or weighted pullups, or bentover rows, wide grip weighted reverse pushups… I could go on, but I don’t know what you want, the upper back has a lot of muscles in it that can, or cannot be worked with any kind of pullup variation. Pulling down will generally make you wider, whereas rowing horizontally will make you thicker.
