Are you guys counting traps as “upper back thickness”?
I really don’t think that counts. Having big traps doesn’t really do a whole lot for your back aesthetically. When I think of upper back thickness I picture the thickness that is built on top of the scapulea when performing a rear double bi shot and the area in between the scapulea as well.
Obviously this would make much more sense if I knew the names of the muscles, but alas…
I would say my favorite exercises to build that area are 1 arm T Bar rows, rack pulls, and even BB rows. Face pulls are good too, but you can’t really load that exercise much.
almost all of your visual upper back is your trapezius muscle.
thats what youre seeing in a rear double bi
Cool thanks, that clears things up nicely.
