Just took this now, I think I have a little thickness, but NO width, what are some good exercises for width. Mostly all I do for back now is heavy dead and rows. thanks!

the reason I have never do pullups is becuase I aim to shape my workouts after BCC. If you read his old journal through (as I have) all you ever see is bench, squats, deads, and BB rows over and over again, as heavy as he could go. So I figured if I followed that (which i do) then i could get width to in addition to thickness

Why would you necessarily follow his methods? He was getting in competition shape after 4+ years of training and had some "assistance". You don't apply to any of those factors...

Get in some heavy pullups as well.

becuase what he was doing is universal. He was not getting in competition shape, he was building mass. Assistance or not, why would that matter in terms of choosing which exercises to do?

Nothing wrong with it for say, but what works for Chase might not work for you. And vice versa. That's why I think it's better to take your own journey and figure things out.

Either way, invest some time in a vertical row as well. And your arms look good!

My guess? Chase's back was already very developed and wide when he was using that routine. If you're hoping to widen your back, it makes sense to do exercises that target that area. You say you want width. Well, do exercises that will increase width, even if Chase was just building mass.

Hmm, upright rows??? I pretty much threw those in the garbage after Yates called them trash in blood n guts
