The back is made up of so many muscles
group that it takes
several exercises to train and build all of them completely. But doing lots of
exercises isn't enough. When doing rows and pull-downs, we must
slightly arch the back and bring the elbows straight back behind you to
get a maximal contraction. Forget using heavy weights until you can make
each rep a maximally contracted rep! Perform these exercises to add slabs
of back muscle.

from top to bottom. Dorian does them with a shoulder-width reverse grip.
With legs slightly bent and upper torso at a 50-70 degree angle, he
brings his elbows directly back behind him and pulls the barbell into
This is exactly how you should
train, but with
an EZ-bar. The EZ-bar will take the stress off the wrists and biceps.
You will find the reverse grip row with EZ bar easier to do, and your ability to concentrate
on the movement - and keep the back muscle slightly arched for maximal
contraction .Go for 8-10 reps.
