How many guys do you see with a thick back that is not wide and a wide back that is not thick?
Rows, Pullups, and Deadlifts are the answer. A lot of guys don't deadlift because they are hard and painful. Ronnie Coleman said it best when he said everyone wants to be a bodybuilder but don't want to lift heavy weight.
Can you build a good back without deadlifts? Probably but it will take a lot longer to get there. Unless you have a legit problem where it is dangerous to deadlift then Man up and get to it... If you actually want to reach your goals.
The foundation to any good program is Squat, DL, Bench, and Overhead press. Throw in some rows and pullups and you are on your way.
Discipline makes you mentally and physically tough!
Currently making everything stronger!!
Once I stick to the program I am going to get really strong.
