    ya see fighters with these wide lattisumus dorsi, which are usualyl visible from almost all angles, includng the front, creating a much fuller feel. What would you say is the best exercise to work these, and widen them up.

    Yeah I realize this ain't exactly a bodybuilding forums, bit since so many fighters have the "flap" I figure some back exercise they do must really work.

    thanks

    Chins, rack chins, one arm row, bent over row, seated row. I hear that bodybuilders like doing rack chins with a wide, wide grip. Developing big lats takes time, it's not something you do right away.

    Are you thinking of Arona btw?

    I prefer to work on my back flaps right after I've peaked my biceps and really pumped the tear drop in my quads. Try seated cable rows with a moderate weight done 4x15 at a 4:1:1 tempo. Make sure you wear your gloves. Afterwards go inject yourself with the best juice you can get your hands on (you can ask Fight4Money about that one--he's done his homework).

    Agreed. Although I guess if you're heavy then you don't need to use weights. Hence wide grip chins in general. Plus bent over rows. They add width and thickness.

    be careful, I know people who have torn their flaps from going to heavy. Always be careful when working your flaps. I agree though, a nice set of flaps looks great. I like to pose in the mirror and check out my flaps.

    How big our your flaps now. How do you currently train your flaps. Do you diet to get large flaps.

    one great exercise for your flaps is to lie down face-down on a bench, grab some light dumbells, and extend & flap your arms like a flying bird. if you think the burn is too much, just let out a mighty "kaww!!!" and feel the power of the raven fill your blood. that should like, keep you going.

    Barbell rows scare the crap out of Chin-ups. Once Barbell rows raped chin-up's girlfriend, stole his stash, then pulled out Chins platinum teeth with his bare hands and hocked them to buy some narcotic pain killers.

    Barbell rows are the shit for back growth, mmmkay?

    Rickdogg dude, I saw some plastic surgery show on tv the other night where this chick had to have her left flap altered. She had too much flap skin, and it got in the way during sex, plus it made her cooter look really weird.

    Oreomeister, Just warning you dude, huge beef flaps can be a turn off for some guys.
