When it comes to building an impressive back, you must make sure you are performing exercises for width and thickness.
Width is going to come from rowing exercises.
Thickness is going to come from pull down exercises.
Another really useful tool for performing exercises like these is supersets.
A superset is when you perform two exercises back to back and rest after, rather than resting after a single exercise.
Now, the issue with supersets is that when the gym is busy, it’s difficult to keep two machines at once.
So what’s awesome about this superset is that it only requires one cable row machine for both exercises.
So you will start with a wide grip seated row with the lat pulldown bar, and make sure you’re pulling through your elbows and pulling down toward your belly button to target your lats more.
Then, you will drop your legs behind the seat with your hips holding you in position and your chest on the pad. From here you will perform the movement as a lat pulldown.
With the lat pulldown, continue focusing on pulling down through your elbows so that you engage your lats as much as possible.
Perform as many sets and reps as you’d like, I recommend 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps of each and you should be good for this superset.
