View Full Version : Lat exercise question

What are some good lat widening exercises that I can use in my homegym?

I work out at home now and do not have access to a Lat pulldown...nor able to put a block/tackle setup just now to make one for my homegym.

Since my college classes have ended, six months ago, and do not have access to the Universal machine pulldown, I lost my lat width. Would like to get this back. I perform bentover dbl and barbell rows but that does not hit the lats as a pulldown would.

Would the lying down or bentover T-bar exercise help replace this? I use an Olympic style barbell in my gym and set up a crossbar onto it.

I know about pullups and able to hold myself up for a few seconds at one rep by grasping a shed roof overhang.

I think your best bet will be to do wide grip pullups - or negatives - from a bar.

Do some lat shrugs from the hanging chin position too.

try wide grip dls with overhand grip.
