Basic Exercises: Wide-Grip Chins

Basic Exercises

These chins widen the lats and work on the entire shoulder girdle. Many top bodybuilders have built great upper backs with this exercise alone. It primarily develops the upper and outer regions of the lats and spreads the scapula, making it easier to widen the lats. Using a wide grip pull yourself up until your chin is over the bar; lower the body slowly and give the lats a good stretch on the way down. Preferably is 10 reps, and sometimes I add weight by placing a dumbbell between legs for a few sets of 6 to 8 reps. You may not be able to do 10 reps. In that case do as many as you can, aiming for a total of 30.

Wide grip chins will give you a great back. I like to follow them with bent over rows either with a barbell or dumbbells then move into setted rows and do drop sets on that. After it time for my post workout supplements and recover.
