My Lats are seriously lacking. Can someone please recommend some good exercises for Lats? I currently do Pull ups and Pull downs and that 'lat pull machine'
Thread: Best exercises for the Lats???

What are you looking for more width or thickness? Usually both.
do weighted wide grip pull ups or use you body weight.
Lat pull Downs
T bar rows this works for width as well
Close grip pull Downs
Overall: do deadlifts _
Do some researching on the site you'll find many excercises on every bodypart

I don't really understand this at all, fibers grow in all directions, their base doesn't deform into an oblong cylinder, so how could the width and thickness of a fiber develope out of sync?
Is thickness some kind of veiled upper lat reference and width is some veiled lower lat reference?
I bring this question up whenever I see this talked about. Clearly the lat fibers that attach on the lumbar's lower fascia appear to be running on the outside and seem width-y. Clearly the lat fibers that attach on the lumbar's upper fascia are on the inside and look like they run underneath the lower traps, perhaps making them seem "thick" or something?
Still really really confused though, because if this doesn't explain it, this is like asking how to make your biceps wider versus thicker, I just figured hypertrophy did both so if you took a cross-section it would remain pretty circular.
More width or more height (thickness) would mean it wouldn't be a circle anymore, and that would be strange.
