    Overtrain lats/back?

    If I do a dedicated back workout Monday and Friday ((Superset 4x 8-10 reps) - bent-over row/upright row, Seated cable row/wide grip lat pull-downs, prone dumbbell rows/prone dumbbell flies, heavy barbell shrugs/light dumbbell shrugs).

    But also do a calisthenic workout Tuesdays and Thursdays which includes 10x pull ups and 10x chin ups, is that likely to impact on any gains made on the dedicated back workout? I'm conscious that it'll be working the lats 4x a week but the work on the calisthenics days seems fairly minimal.

    What do you think?

    Doing 10 pull ups and chin ups is not gonna make you over train your back on top of your routine. Your volume is fine.
    That said, this is the nutritional section. You'll get more replies in the exercise section.

    I doubt you'll overdevelop one muscle group from what you've listed here. But you've also given no context as to what the rest of your workouts look like. If all you do is back, then yes you'd have more lat development than say your pecs.

    Lats recover relatively fast in my experience, I agree that you should be fine. However, if it does impede on progress from a recovery standpoint, there's no reason you shouldn't just try to build up to it. Slow and steady. Whatever you do, just ensure you're making proper progression in your main program.

    I've always done 50 pull ups prior to every training session regardless of what I'm training.

    You'll be fine and get wide as fuk.

    Five sets of ten reps. Four sets of 12-15 if Im feeling really fresh. Be consistent and your body/strength will adapt. You'll get there as well.
