Wide grip chin, no doubt.
It works the upper fibers of the lats and teres, but more importantly, it pulls the shoulder blades out which REALLY contributes to back width.
You can have big thick lats and a crappy lat spread, conversely, you can have flexible shoulder blades with a great lat spread and crappy lats.

Widegrip chins, I was also the retard that clicked the closegrip I meant to say wide"The passionate pursuit of perfection."
There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra than on Alzheimer's research. This means
that by 2030, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Wide grip chins and behind the back chins have built width in my back like nobody's business. And I can use much more weight than I ever could with pullups."Every kiss begins with Kay" Delts
