Lat exercises with Dumbbell & Barbell
 
Since nighttrain gave me the idea to do seated barbwell curls, I thought I would ask if you have any unique way of training back with dumbbell or barbell.

I train in my basement, and have a t-bar station. I generally perform Yate's Rows, T-Bars and Deadlifts. I also sometimes perform DB Rows.

Any suggestions on other DB/BB back exercises?

Get naked, place a full pitcher of beer between your thighs, and try to do pullups without spilling the beer. If you succeed, drink the beer.

You can also put protein powder in the beer, if you want to make this exercise "feel" more healthy.

For the Lats you could do DB lat Pull Overs, Lay on the bench with a DB in hand and extend your arms all the way out in front of your face. Now bring it back keeping your arms as straight as possible and try to go as close to floor as comfotably possible. This great for the lats!!!:march:

You feel any shoulder tweaking while doing this?

Shoulder tweaks cause me to avoid flyes.

Kneel on a flat exercise bench with one knee, you other foot placed on the floor beside the bench. Support your upper body by placing your hand on the end of the bench. With your other hand grab a dumbbell. Keep your back flat and let the dumbbell hang down at arms length.
Keeping your elbow close to your side, slowly pull the dumbbell directly upwards until it touches the side of your torso. Squeeze your back muscles for a second to maximize the peak contraction. Slowly lower the dumbbell back to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of reps. Do the same for your other arm.
