    Is there a bodyweight exercise for lats besides pull-ups?

    Well?

    As in, if a person were stuck in the wilderness with no dumb bells, cables, and couldn't find a tree limb to do pull-ups, what else could a person do to build up their lats?

    A friend and I were challenging each other and both got stumped on this one.

    You can find a low hanging branch and do an intverted row or you can do rows with rocks.
    I know it sounds weird but shaving your body hair and injecting testicle shrinking substances into your butt actually makes you less of a man.

    grab a big @$$ rock and do some rows...

    find a low branch, lay under it, and pull yourself up to it with your heels remaining on the ground-- basically an inverted row. i forget the name of these, sorry.

    find an animal with a long tail. grab the tail. kick said animal in the b@lls, and pull hard to try to keep it still when it tries to run. tug-of-war style grip.

    pullovers with a rock.


    boooyaaaaaa.

    frick. beat to the punch on inverted rows, and the rest aren't bodyweight. weak sauce. ahhh, well. there's your survivalist lat workout.

    haha the perfect pullup commercial calls those "australian pullups", but i just call them hanging bodyweight rows.

    also, if you are using a rock as weight, thats just badass, not bodyweight haha.

    hanging rows are good, as mentioned. i have also seen people who travel alot hook a towel around a door handle and grip each end of it, lean back, and use it for bodyweight standing rows.
