Hunter Labrada’s Back Workout: 5 Moves To Mile-Wide Lats –

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


If your back is a weakness, let Hunter Labrada help you out! This back-building workout will help you add size, thickness, and strength!

Follow Hunter’s Full Routine:

Like a lot of guys, my back development used to be a major weak point in my physique. I was much more interested in the muscles I could see in the mirror, so my back training lagged. Eventually, I sat down with my dad, Lee Labrada, and devised a training program to really pack the mass onto my back, especially my lats.

Since then, I’ve been working on building my back to bigger and better proportions. It’s taken a lot of intense and consistent effort, but it’s definitely paid off.

Today, you’ll be going through a back workout with me and my dad. However, before you head straight to the lat pull-down machine, remind yourself to move the weight by squeezing your lats instead of pulling with your arms or using momentum. If you just pull with your arms, you’ll go through an entire workout of glorified biceps curls. That won’t get you anywhere.

Lindsey harris says:

I like everything they did minus their lat pull downs. You’re suppose to
keep head to the sky, grip spread far as possible,crotch all the way under
the rest.

bobbysatwat says:

Blood you keep refering to this statement just because your training back
does not mean their is more blood within that area! what you really mean is
water as your muscle is 80% water….

pantzosk says:

Labrada cute beast lol 🙂 Why don’t you use waste belts on all sets on
the barbell row i think it’s better using one

matthew wilson says:

hmm serious mass and no deadlifts lol

Jacob Templeton says:

I have a question that no one can tell me the answer too. Since I was in
seventh grade I have been lifting weights and when I started I could do
straight bar curls. Now I’m a senior in high school and my wrist do not
turn. my wrist started to be able to turn less and I could barely use the
ez bar and couldn’t do reverse grip bench at and is is not tennis elbow but
I can do hammer curls and that is the only thing I can do to work my
biceps. Other examples are when I carry large objects I can’t put my hands
flat on the bottom. Another way to say this is when my hands are close to
my body I can turn my palms up but when I extend my arms my hand turn like
I’m in a clapping position

ricky anthony says:

Don’t understand why Lee has Hunter doing high volume sets when Lee himself
trained with Mike Mentzer & his routines evolved to low volume of 2-3 sets
per exercise. 

Anthony Intensity says:

I like the tips in this video!
I like the short rest intervals between sets and exercises as well!
Hunter looks like a great guy!

eluminated says:

Fantastic tips, thanks!!

Will Smith says:

Not only is this a really great workout, but Hunter explains the techniques
really well, and looks like a very respectful, humble guy, as seen in the
way he speaks. Great Job. Can’t wait to see more videos from you Hunter. 

welcome2mytruth says:

Under hand pull down is a killer! Great video guys. Like the idea of
pre-fatiguing the lats. Great tips too.

bingorat1 says:

This video will not load for me properly… is going on every other
video is fine but this one i constantly pausing and freezing and its only
this video….

Shogun973 says:

nice and simple this is something I’d do if I wasn’t motivated but still
needed a back workout

RenZoneNL says:

is there that much difference in underhand pulldowns vs close grip? I
really hate doing underhand

John Gillin says:

Good video. Lee I don’t know how old you are, but you still look great and
in shape. Out of all the people you compeated aginst you seem to have kept
your size, muscles and you still look good. Your a good example to follow
and learn from.

Arnold Bongcayao says:
