Every guys wants the V-shaped torso because it creates the illusion of being larger than you actually are and makes your waist and stomach appear thinner than it actually is. The focus of this finisher will be on the back (lats and traps), as well as shoulders which make up the V-build. Add this on to your regular back and/or shoulder routine and you'll be well on your way to a broader upper body.
