    Yes bent row yates style, overhand grip. Fast movement, not slow. Any back movement should be done fast. Slow mo makes the biceps work to much takin it away from the back is what's your tryin to work in the first place.

    close grip pulldowns. you already do bent over rows, but close grip pulldowns also help with width.

    I will find a study for you, and anyone who says close grip isnt for width doesnt know what theyre talking about.

    I read somewhere :- Vertical pulling movements (Pull ups, Lat pulldowns) are for width and horizontal (rowing, deadlift) are for back thickness and seems logical .

    I feel my lats a lot while doing assisted pull ups (wide grip)

    I asked this same question not long ago. I changed my workout start off with glose grip pullups instead of waiting to the end of my workout. I've been focusing on my barbell rows also. It's working quite well.

    Underhand Yates style are the best IMO. Don't go stupid heavy, keep the weight were you can bend to almost 90deg at the waist and slam the bar into your belt. Once you do it right nothing fires your lats more.

    Ive always stayed away from them bc they look like they could fuck your back up if you did them wrong.

    Whats a good weight to start with? and should they be done in the beginning of the workout or at the end?
