Can't believe no one has mentioned rack reads from maybe 3/4 up shin. I find they are the only lift that absolutely make my back feel destroyed the next day.

Rack deads are money for back thickness. Also row to grow. Reverse grip bb rows with a bit more upright posture is great for the upper back.

Why rack dead when you can do a normal deadlift like a real man!?

I am not pulling from the floor right now but maybe in the future. I'm just getting back in shape after like a year lay off so I will see how it changes. I dont do barbell rows the day I do these as they take a lot of out of my lower back so I dont want to get an injury so I will add an extra chin up set on these days.

I wouldn't expect rack pulls or deadlifts to benefit the back specifically for hypertrophy purposes in the way a type of row would. It'll help give you some thick erectors though.

I've never understood the love of deads for back purposes. There's not enough TUT and they encompass for more than just the erectors. Now, snatch-grip deads on the other hand, would be a better option as they put the upper back at a point where it's leverage is terrible and blasts the hell out of the upper and middle traps.

Thick back = Hit a compound back movement for 5 sets, 3x a week. Done.

Yes i understand. And i am not throwing away your advice. but I am implementing it in my workout and probly always will do a few sets of deads each time Because it is definitely helping me create a back that i want.

I've seen many a 600+lb pullers in my life and they will all have thick traps and erectors, but not as much thickness in the lats as you would think.
