Lou, I'll make a deal with you - I'll overlook your little tire, you overlook my saddlebags. You look thick as hell!

Karate - you have a TINY waist! Really emphasizes the width up top.

Thanks a lot Built. The Back Double Bi was taken at the end of my cut where I got my waist down to 28.5''

Next time I post pics I'll have a 28'' waist and 10 more lbs of muscle :p

Dude I have that SAME sweater! Where'd you get it? ;)

Built has a guide for lat spreading around here somewhere... it amounts to "put your hands on your hips and imagine you're hugging a tree with your elbows", which is a pretty good shorthand.

But doing a Double Bi actually makes your "V" look more pronounced because of the optical effect of the spread arms, etc., even though the lats don't tend to spread out quite as much.

I'm sure some of the older members will remember this pic from last year. The taper isn't quite as well seeing how I've gained some around the midsection and lost a little back, but it's getting back up to where it should be.... finally.

I was 250 even in the picture...

Pics look good but you need to update the links, they all go to "Back1.jpg". One bit of advice (I'm by far a pro at it, just my personal taste...) is don't drop your fists past 90 degrees when doing a back double bi. You look bigger when you are as filled out as possible, and I think 90 degrees does that perfectly, as well as makes you look really symmetrical. I also think it makes the person flexing look novice as if they are trying to squeeze more out of their arm than they really have, you know? Just my .02. Looking big for 6'6"... damn that's tall. :D

Well my back never really got wide or sick until I started barbell rowing up a storm. Other than that I would say intensity, or I guess I should say effort. All out crazy deadlifts for 8-12 reps always leave every inch of my back sore. Combine that with the heavy rows and that's about all I need. I do pulldowns every once in a while, but that's more a change of pace, not my preference.

KarateBoy
09-21-2006, 12:28 PM

I've been doing BB rows for the last month and I'm loving them. STILL probably weak weight compared to most but I'm loving it and its helping my posture a ton :)

Your welcome bro! You have it, the wide shoulders and tiny waist, few have that, a lot of people have wide shoulders, but also wide hips and waist, also a lot of people don't have the wide shoulders, you have the best of both worlds, I'm like you too, I'm not bragging, it's genetics, my brother is like that too, tiny waist and wide shoulders, but he is worse than me, his shoulders are almost too wide, he looks like he is wearing shoulder pads! He is taller than me too, and he is skinny! Both of my parents got wide shoulders, but my Dad doesn't have a small waist, I got my small waist from my Mom..;)
Warning: You will be envied by many...wait til you get huge, it's gonna be sick!...lol!

Two shirtless and one shirted, just for kicks.

I would have to say this is one of the better backs on WBB.

Guido
09-29-2006, 09:45 AM
Guido got some wide shoulders, but a somewhat thick waistI've always had naturally wide shoulders. The thick waist, well, deadlifts and lots of oblique work will do that. Plus the pic was at the end of a 50+ lb bulk. I've slowly put on another 10 lbs (of muscle)since that pic over a year ago and my bodyfat % has slowly dropped from ~18% down to ~14% according to the Tanita impedence scale.

I need newer pics.

Isn't that a myth? Oblique work and deadlift won't really changeyour waist.

Your obliques can get larger by working them just like any other muscle.. If they get bigger then your waist will also inevitably get bigger.

If I understand your post right...you CAN have two different people with the same bf%, one having a 28" waist and the other 32".
As deeder said, your obliques grow just like any other muscle.

You are still a freak though!...lol...plus, we kinda have the same strength, You beat me on the deadlift, I tried 505 on the deadlift and I failed, because I was tired, but it went up half way though...Squat, I did 405, but 455 my coached said he helped me a little bit, I don't even know why, It was going up regardless, and bench, I tried for the first time my brand new bench shirt, the rage, and I did 405, but it went up slowly, keep in mind how tight and awkward that shirt felt! also, for some reason I couldn't sleep at all prior testing day (it wasn't a contest, it was just testing day at the gym) I had maybe at the most an hour of sleep...The lack of energy made me weak...I bet I could lift anything if I'm fully rested!...lol...well, almost anything...lol(j/k)

Try flaring your lats out a little more, man. Your back probably isn't as small as you think.

how exactly do you do that? I use what built said that one time, elbows out and try to hug a tree.

Anyone know how to "flare them out more"? Should i put my elbows more forward or try to push my shoulders out?

Detard
02-04-2007, 03:35 PM
try and push your shoulders kinda downish i guess. breathe in deep and just flex your lats.

jed
02-04-2007, 03:36 PM
OK thanks i'll try that and see if i get any better of picture :)

4 months ago...Now 20lbs heavier and too ashamed of the extra body fat I'm carrying to post an updated lat spread.

Dig your thumbs into your midsection, let the elbows flare as wide as possible, sternum up, crunch down on your lats and midback. It takes practice. Took me forever to learn how to do a most muscular right.

not as big as most of ya'll, but not too bad for a 160 pounder
