In addition to that "back exercises" thread, I think weighted pull-ups are a better back exercise then deadlifts. Don't get me wrong, deadlifts are the s***, and I love them, but I mostly feel them in my hamstrings, the back of my traps, my lower back, and my quads. Deadlifts are a great overall mass builder, but as for a primary upper back exercise though, weighted pull-ups definately are my #1 exercise. I do a few sets with a 25 lb or 45 lb weight attached, then finish by doing a few bodyweight sets to failure, and holy s*** do I feel it in my back the next day especially my lats and mid-upper back. I do it all for my back, because that's my #1 favorite body part to work, but weighted pull-ups take the cake.
