Try this exercise. I don't know the name, High Cable Squated Rope Pulls !!

Set a cable pulley to the top & attach the rope attachment. Grab the rope just you normally would and back up about 5 feet. Now squat really far and keep your head down. Pull the rope into your body.

I like to do a set of wide grip pullups, then drop down and do these to failure. Typically I just use the whole stack as you tend to be able to lift a LOT on this exercise! You should definitely feel it in your lats though!

THUMBS UP! I love em! Sometimes, if I want to change things up, I'll choose a lighter weight and superset them with light dead lifts.

Another GREAT lat exercise are so called Gironda sternum chins. It's basically a standard pull up but you slightly lean back allowing yourself to pull up as high as you possibly can (touching the sternum).

Check the video: grip can be varied.

The deadlift is extremely taxing on the CNS, yes. The squat is not very taxing at all on the CNS, you can do it heavy every single day.

My lats were built primarily from heavy reverse grip bent over barbell rows which hit the lower lat, and a ton of weighted pullups. I hardly use the pulldown anymore unless we are working on negative reps. Wide/Neutral/Reverse Grip. Just failure everytime....

deadlifts are one of the key compound pulls that stimulate the CNS and releases the most GH. therefore, its essentialiif ya wanna put on any mass . for lats, the actions are abduction and extension of the humerus. so it does matter HOW you do ur pull ups. though i would like to know,wad is the ave volume of ya workout? in terms of sets and reps.
i am not sure abt how much volume should be incorporated.it would be great to know.cheers. nice lats.
