    Or pull downs narrow grip, reverse grip... use the attachments to vary the emphasis.

    You should be trying to get up to your body weight on your third or forth set. It will take time, but keep adding weight over the weeks and months and you will get there.

    Pull-ups and especially weighted pull ups will put meat on your wings like NO other exercise. Period.

    I would think that like standing reverse grip pull downs or something along that line would be like doing regulat pull ups
