Thanks for the extra pics!

270lbs is small? :shock:
I'm around 188 at the moment... :( My goal for the end of the year is 195 ;)

I do lat pulldowns of 300 lbs, One Hand Rows with 125 lb dumbbells (since that's the max we have at our gym), and One Hand Row machine with 4 Plates and a 25 lb. It's quite odd actually. It's by far the slowest muscle that grows for me. I'm thinking that my strength is due mostly through neurological factors than muscle factors for my back.

That's really quite strong.
Maybe your form is a bit off? (No offense intended) Otherwise i don't know why you're lats won't grow.
Try to stretch after each rep and go over the full ROM.
Also, do you do pull-ups? Imho the best exercise for lats, especially when combined with loaded stretching at the end. I think you know how to do them correctly ;)

Have a good workout,

No one said it would be easy.

Some other pics of me:

Skinny: (all at around 180 sometime last year)

This one is when I went a LONG time without any junk food whatsoever. That is why I titled it "Sin" on my cell phone.

Good luck on your goal mate!

As for the full ROM, I make it a point especially on back exercises. I have no idea as to why they do not grow, grr. I think I will do Pull Ups, I havent done them in awhile but I can do them, just that it's not my favorite because of the stress it puts on my hands (mainly my calluses).

Wow, cool to see all those pics Kollision.

As I always say, I'm so amazed how much size you put on in such a short time and how much strength you gained. It is really impressive, most people spend 10 years to put that amount of size on and to get to where you are in strength, if they ever get there.

Good work, cheers mate!
