    Deadlifts and Rack Deadlifts.

    When you can do 405lbs x 10 deadlifts then start working on trap isolation exercises.

    Wide Pull Ups for Lats. If you can't do Wide Pull Ups, do negatives until you can.

    Deadlifts/Rackpulls for back thickness, and lat pulldowns/pullup's for width.

    Stolen from another post... but funny just as well.

    There are four exercises for building your lats (according to Jim)—dumbbell rows, chin-ups, dumbbell rows, and chin-ups.
