    Help me hit my lats...

    I'm not seeing the development or progress I would like to see in the lat area. Overall my back training has improved since implementing WG and CG chinups and pullups. I'm extremely sore from a recent p/rr/s shock week routine right now...but not in the lats. Overall soreness through the upper back.

    Any suggestions, tips to hit the lats more effectively?

    thx

    I heard that triangle grip pull-downs really hit the lower lats.

    HEAVY(as heavy as you can go with good form) bent-over rows with an underhand grip and an E-Z curl bar or T-Bar rows with the 45 degree angle grip

    ChrisR,

    How tall are you? When you row, does the handle/bar come to you stomach or your chest?

    Mach, i know soreness doesn't equate to gains, but it's nice to feel it. The main thing is I'm not seeing them develop the way I would like to.

    Half, I'm only 5'9. When I do seated rows, the grip usually comes to upper abs, just below the chest.

    lat training is all about form and the MTM connection
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    ChrisR,
    Do you feel your lats working when you row? Do you hold the contraction for a second or do you release immediately?

    The exercise I'm able to feel them the most is with a CG pulldown. With rows, I guess I feel them, but i always feel the contraction more in my upper back.

    I do rows pretty slowly, so as to pull with the back and not make it all bis. I try to hold for a second.
