    Rack Chins!

    This has probably become my FAVORITE overall back exercise since Layne showed them to me during my contest prep. Here I'm doing 170 for 8 reps and I've really been trying extra hard to slow the eccentric part of the movement down and control my reps. Here's the video:

    You can control how much of a pull-up motion you do vs. how much of a rowing motion you do by how far away you set your feet.

    I've never tried Rack Chins before... I def want to though, I think I'll give em a shot once I feel my pull-ups are upto par with the rest of my lifts.

    Your gym owns for playing Avenged Sevenfold. My gym plays Celine Dion...

    Great form bro, you're one strong son of a

    I feel MUCH less bicep recruitment when I do rack chins versus when I do weighted pullups. I realize that my form on weighted pulups could use some work wrt bicep recruitment, but I feel it in my lats more on a rack chin.

    Plus, you could put your feet further away and do an inverted row...that way you could go heavy and not have lower back be an issue
