    the back look


    hi
    another back question
    I noticed that some people have backs that look like a snake's hood when viewed from the side, while others have straight backs
    We all know the muscle shape is genetic, keeping that in mind , is there any exercise that you can do (or overdo) or any specific muscle that you can over-develope that will give you that *cobra hood* look. I dont know how else to explain it
    I was think that overdeveloping the rear delts and/or traps will help give you that look

    comments??

    Cobra-hood is from lats being well developed. Any good lat exercises done right.

    That's going to be very hard to replicate without the genetics for such.

    Try bent over rows, this has been a good exercise for adding thickness to my back.

    Second that. If you have wide lats but your back looks straight from the side, you're lacking thickness. Bent over barbell rows, Close grip T-Bar rows, and deadlifts bro. Use strict form and watch your back thickness explode...

    I have the opposite problem. My back is insanely THICK but my lat flare is weak My chest measurement in the avatar is 52" but from the front it sure doesn't look it. People guess me at like 250s or so in the gym then I turn sideways and they're like "doh scratch that 290"

    Bro its probably because your skeletal structure is so damn wide to begin with If you respond well to high volume work, one thing that worked to increase my 'wings' was what my kid brother and I named '75 reps of death' for chins.

    You just keep doing reps of wide grip chins to failure, taking 60 second breaks in between each set until you get to 30, following week go to 50, and the next week go to 75. If you can't squeeze one out go to the gravity assist machine thing.

    After that last week, go back to doing normal sets for like 12,10,8 reps.

    It's kind of extreme, but its works well to shock stubborn muscles into growth. The same method worked really well for my calves, too.
