is this the way to a big back?
I do lots of pull downs, wide and close. I feel its the same ****
Pullups are the way to a wide back.
I guarantee the reason you're not feeling them right is because you are pulling with your hands. Try pulling from your elbows in, rather than your hands down.
i can only do about 6 reps at a time which is why im skeptacle about it doing anything

Weighted pull ups and weighted dips are best upper body mass builders of all time.
Use the assisted pull up machine...
Here is a tip i read a while back by "doggcrapp" Makes allot of sense.
I do nice slow negatives, fighting against them and really focusing on my lats.. Really blasts them.lat width: If some of you guys really realized lat width is all about the stretch and only secondarily pulling that weight down so you can call it a rep, you would be such the better bodybuilder for it. I guess thats all im going to really say on that subject....you want to overthink lat width here ill give you something to think about.....you know that last 12 inches or so on the return (eccentric) of a various form of chin or pulldown? Overthink that on how to work that hard (flaring/leaning back against the return/resisting against it/stretching against the return) instead of just "getting to the top so you can start your pull again "and youll end up a very happy man. Take that to the bank.
70 degree barbell rows, deadlifts, powercleans give you a big, big back
if i was a teen again trying to build my back i would do deadlifts one row and pullups/chinups/variations. That is all you need. It would actually be more effective than all the machines i see people use.
Deadlifts, Rows, Cleans, Pullups/Chins > Everything else including weak machines.
Pull ups man and with weights and like people said deadlifts are good, but try sumo deadlift high pulls
