    weighted pullups are the shit for back thickness and width, or body weight pullups - whichever

    I personally don't like them, they do hit the lats a little bit and once you get used to the other way they are actually harder.

    I switch it up between dead/row/pullup/pullover one week, then a squeeze with machine/db/hammer strength week/ then i do a combo of both for the 3rd and repeat.

    I train back twice a week but only one exercise per day. It's heavy training so that's enough. I alternate between deadlifts and lat pull down. I may only be a 130lbs, 5'3.5" girl right now but i will get thick...oh yes...i will get thick.

    it was in a recent thread about helping her get her first fitness cover... do a search. Or actually I'm sure you probably saw it and just never stuck around long enough to see her responses to the thread.

    nope I actually never read that thread. It was about helping someone, and I don't like helping people.

    but what if I started that business? I could get small busness loans from the govt, get investors, get airtime on a local TV station advertising...before you know it, I could be training frat boys' bench twice a week via my syndicated tv show 'swole 2 go: chest made simple'

    You must be one of those guys who likes 90lb anorexic chicks. One of the hottest girls I know is 140lbs and by not fat by any stretch of the imagination.
