Good symettry, and shape. You do not appear to be lagging in anything.
You need mass, that's all. Try deadlifts if you do not incorporate them already; I found that they put slabs of muscle on my back.

Come on guys, no one else?

Good back but looks like you have acne on there.
Any cycles under your belt?

Cycles? well, I'vbe been back lifting only 8 months ago after 6 years of bicycling and loosing 25 lbs.
I'm just out of a tren /winny mild cycle. I loved it and gained 15 lean lbs.
What do you think of 8 months lifting? I'm quite satisfied, I know it will take long to get back to 6 years ago but I'm working on it.

After this cycle I'm on, I'm going on a hardcore cutting diet. I gained all my weight back right outta Navy boot camp couple years back.

Pulldowns and barbell rows will help give you some width. As heavy as you can go for 5 reps or so, 4 sets should do the trick for each exercise. I never started putting on muscle until i started using heavy weight.

Yea like he said above, your back is very cut, but you could use a little more on the lats..it will make you look alot bigger. Your lower lat portion looks ok, its just the upper that needs the working. Keep it up..looking good.

Yeah I would say that deadlifts should be your main concern. This will help your erectors match your lower trapezius muscles while adding thickness. Just keep it up bro and it will come. Everyone said my back sucked so I made it my priority and now it's my best part and can compete with the best of them. Glad your taking the critique so well because thats how you improve.

Looks pretty good, my guess would be more lats and erectors, maybe traps too. Essentially though, I just work it all hard, I think perfection should be saved for those who are huge

Thanks guys, very useful suggestions!
If anyone has some more they are welcome.

I thought the first pic looked very solid. Nice work.
They say your lats could use some work but in general it is some very nice work youve done.
I wouldnt think deadlifts would help in the lat area. I will look into that. Traps and forearms yes.
10-29-2003, 08:15 AM #19
You look very lean but you do not have a very strong V shape. Wide grip pull ups and pulldowns will definitely help. Also, I agree with everyone, start doing deadlifts to add thickness to your lower back.
10-29-2003, 08:17 AM #20
I can't believe nobody has pointed out the obvious here. You lack width. You have definitely added some very nice thickness to your lower lats and rhomboids but lack lat width. Start hitting those wide grip pulldowns/chins. Of course, you didn't post a lat spread pic so I don't have a real good idea of your actual width but I can tell from the ones you posted that you lack width all the way down. Upper and lower lats.
This is not to take away from your thickness, you've done a great job building that up with rows.

lats man. do some pulldowns/pullups. i like weighted pullups personally. those exercises will add width.
10-29-2003, 09:17 AM #22
I appreciate and agree with everybody say I lack width.
Anyway haere's another one relaxed and a little more recent one.
Ok, v shape is not very evident...
10-29-2003, 12:06 PM #23
I really cant critique cause it is better than my back.
10-29-2003, 01:56 PM #24
Ok guys, since everybody's so helpful, let's go on.
Don't hesitate, need some good advice.
10-29-2003, 02:42 PM #25
sup dude...lookin good..i believe u should focus more on the lower lats with more weight on the rows..id start off back with rows then wide grip pullups..or pulldowns whatever gets u better...standing reverse bar rows with an arched back at the end of the movement will get u good..then hit up some 1arm bumbell rows...after that the pulldowns or pull ups wide grip..nice cuts up top bro..koz
10-29-2003, 03:53 PM #26
Look good bro,if I were in your shoes I'd do heavy rows and wide grip pull ups.Deadlifts are a must also.
