What are good back exercises i can do with just a barbell and 2 dumbbells??
im presently doing bent-over rows and deadlifts.
i know chinups are a good exercise but i dont got the chinup bar.
any help on other good exercises i can do???
Use the barbell to beat someone u and take $12 from their wallet to buy a chinup bar. Do bent over rows on your way to and from the scene of the crime.
I agree with that conjecture. There's nothing really significant you can do with what little you have.

You can do pullovers with a dumbbell.

BARBELL ROWS-SU, PRO, SEMI-PRO
Those are all good, heavy unilateral movements. If you don't see growth off of barbell rows and deadlifts something's wrong.
Rows, Cleans and Deads--maybe a few shrugs now and then
What else is needed?
They're best pulling exercise. We all know that. The point is that it is super easy to get a pullup bar, or go to a park and use a jungle gym, or a water pipe or whatever. No excuses!
Of course, deads, cleans, and rows too.
I think you could piece together a very decent program with what you have. What others have suggested and also one armed rows & cleans. Ian King even states that the clean puts on more upper back mass than dead's!Originally Posted by eric1214
Example - make up a routine combining sets of deadlift, clean, bent over BB row, 1 arm row. Finish it off with a rear delt movement (ie, bent over side raises or bent over row up with a position to max rear delt involvement), some shrugs for your traps and you should be thoroughly beat up.
Don't neglet your squat's on leg day either, these help back too!
