I agree.

You have the power if you want the looks then you need to lift like it.

Maybe go with some slower tempo, 10 rep, squeezing the contraction lifts. Add more chest supported work to isolate the lats and eliminate momentum assisted lifts.

Rule of thumb. If you can't hold the weight for a squeeze in the last rep, your going to heavy and using momentum not the muscle fibers.

These are for getting the look. Look at not to make the weight PR's but look more to make rep PR's.

NO deads, No squats, No Bb Rows just paying attention to the muscles doing the work. It can be done with dedication.

Don't look at the rippness, look at the seperation and fiber serations.
