Definately gain at this point in your training life.

Don't bother with the supps. They won't do anything but lighten your wallet.

You've got a wicked base. BULK BULK BULK!

I'll guess I'll keep with the bulk. I'll just eat, uhh, more.

For a big back you need to use a routine full of compound exercises, one of my favorite routines:

deadlift
bb shrugs
bb rows
chins
seated cable rows

how much you row? I think bb rows are best for back development

Yes BB rows are also a favorite of mine, and also the w/o I contribute to my width which has gotten Pretty good IMO..

heavy BB rows and some sort of chin/lat pull and deadlift and you should start to see your back blow up in thickness and width..

What are my options for chinning if I have no real place to do it (Home gym), I can do lat pulls etc and the like - Something like a door frame support bar, or a combination chin/dip station?

greetz,
RonHeh. That looks almost identical to my back day routine, minus the cable rows. Even in that same order!

BTW, it's worked quite well for me.

I'm with mase...you need a verticle (pulldowns) and a horizontal (rowing) lift.

If you can do lat pull downs, you don't need chins IMO (I don't do chins). You'll have to find what rowing movement works best for you. My preference is cable rows or DB rows.

Deads and shurgs are great lifts but more for traps.

One reason pullups are awesome is that they don't require any equipment. Find a tree or playground.

Anyway, a chinup bar is only $15, and probably the single best bodybuilding tool per dollar. Easy to add weight too (backpack).
