I’m sure I can answer my own question but there seem to be some really smart people here so I’m gonna ask you all anyways.
I used to be really into lifting a few years ago, then took about 1.5 years off and got back into it this past december. I’ve made up my losses since then and am back on the road to growth.
I’ve seen good results (to me) everywhere on my body except my lats. I eat like I should and try to follow all the lessons I’ve learned from this site with my workouts. I do all the compound lifts etc etc.
My back routine is generally 4 or 5 sets of heavy deads, lat pull down (because I feel can’t do enough reps on pullups to do full sets) then dumbell rows. I’ve seen great progress in the rest of my back from the deads and rows but my lats seem to be really lagging in terms of width and fullness.
Do I simply need to just do as many reps of pullups as I can? Is that the missing link? Or is there some other movement that I’m forgetting that would help with my lats/width?
