🔥😳HOW DO I BUILD A WIDE BACK? Founder 👉: @king_khieu. Before we begin this, I want to be clear on several things. For building a well developed back, the heavy core movements such as deadlifts, barbell rows and chin-pull ups are the fundamentals. The compound movements are crucial for building a strong back and core foundation. Use cable exercises and machines to chisel and define your back afterward. But never neglect the core movements. Building width requires consistency and hard work. Again, focus on core movements first and define after. Here are some variation, movements and tips which are great if you want to build a wider back. 1 - Weighted pull ups and chin ups if you can. 2 - Straight arm pushdowns. 3 - Wide grip exercises such as pull ups and pulldowns. 4 - Pre-exhaust training for the lats. 5 - Work your back twice a week. 6 - Focus on the squeeze and build-mind muscle connection. 7 - Deadlifts are key for width and thickness.
