Video taken from the channel: ATHLEAN-X™

V-Taper Workout Program Notes Building the V-taper requires a targeted approach. It begins with building the lats. If you’re waist is wider than your upper back you end up looking like a peach or traffic cone. Not the best look.

In pursuing your V-taper, neglecting to build your back is physique suicide. You simply can’t overlook this aspect of your body. No impressive physique is built without an impressive foundation of strength. Heavy compound lifts, specifically the overhead press, pull-up, and deadlift, are the cornerstone of V-taper physique training.

These will provide the necessary tension to build dense muscle and activate the maximum number of muscle fibers to accelerate growth. If there’s anything you should focus on to make your physique stand out, it’s building a thick, wide, 3D back that demands respect and makes heads turn as you walk by. Although the V-taper also requires you to slim down the waist to make it smaller and build cannonball delts that will add broadness to your shoulder complex, the journey to an ideally shaped back begins with developing a pair of majesti. Subj: Create a V Taper Torso with this back workout routine. The V Taper, or V shape torso requires a slim waist and wide upper back.

A big back is a key component for a strong and nice looking physique. A well balanced and strong body will undoubtedly have a well developed back that is wide and thick. Building a big back is the most important factor when trying to achieve the ‘V’ shape upper body.

To build the best V Taper possible, quality nutrition (via whole foods and supplements) is unquestionably the most important variable of all. Pro-Class V-Taper: tools of the trade. The following exercises comprise the best selection of V Taper-building movements in existence. One of the most impressive aspects of the bodybuilder’s physique is the infamous “V” taper. You know, the type of shape that makes it look possible to jump of a cliff, spread you lats, and do a little hang gliding.

Think about the physiques of some of our most massive Mr. Olympias Lee Haney, Dorian Yates, Ronnie Coleman, and Jay Cutler. Although the V-taper also requires you to slim down the waist to make it smaller and build cannonball delts that will add broadness to your shoulder complex, the journey to an ideally shaped back begins with developing a pair of majestic, wing-shaped lats.

Read this article to learn how to get your V-taper in top form as fast as possible! #1. Building a V-shape taper begins with building the lats. A back as wide as a barn door, is essential when building a taper. Everyone from the kid just starting to workout at home in his cellar, to the seasoned trainee, or contest competitor, is striving to build bigger and wider lats.

In order to increase the width of your back, you must put a focus on training your lats. The lats are a hallmark muscle for a man. When you combine big lats and a tight midsection, you’ll have an upper body with a great V-Taper. You may even be mistaken for a cobraor a kite at some point during the day. Best Back Exercises Work Sequence: 4 x 8/15 dropset.

In most cases, when load modification simply requires the movement of a pin, we will be able to include some technical intensity (ie dropsets) in an effort to capture stimulation across fiber types and metabolic demand.

  • Guys, if you’re lifting weights to get more sex, i get it, we see someone big and we think daaamn, that guy must get heaps of tang so we try to emulate them so we can join the puss train. We might also be doing it cos we feel small, weak, afraid, and disrespected. You may be ugly or short, or maybe you think your dicks too small.

    Why ever the reason, can i tell you that there is no pot of anything at the end of the rainbow, unless ya gay, then you’re in luck, cos boys love muscles. I’m talkin to the straight guy, as a straight guy who did it for a few of the above reasons. Yes sure certain girls like big muscles don’t get me wrong, they’re also the girls who like big cars/trucks.

    If you’ve always been a skinny kid, trust me, you’ll feel ridiculous and completely incapable of relaxing when you put on muscle because you’ll become your body. You’ll constantly feel self conscious because all you’ll do is compare your body to other dudes bodies, and trust me there are always better bodies out there, so you’ll always feel inadequate. This feeling of inadequacy will ruin any chance of holding onto a girl because you’ll always assume she’s judging you as harshly as you’re judging you. You’ll always feel the need to flex which makes you look stiff and unapproachable as well as looking like a complete insecure tool.

    Then you have all the injuries which will inevitably come which are crazy debilitating. Then you have the expense of rehabilitation on top of gym memberships, supplements, clothes and lets not forget all the chaff.

    Trust me as someone who found all this out the hard way, work on your emotional intelligence and your personality instead. Also try and find yourself, the self that was chased away by parents, siblings, teachers and bosses. Once you find yourself you’ll make far better decisions, attract far more functional people, and have far more happiness than a few very expensive muscles that aren’t useful for anything aside from lifting weights in a smelly gym.

  • I’m interested in the upper-lower split I’m doing one like on the post but I’m wondering if it would still work if I do my bent over flys for my rear delts I’m going for a v taper the upper-lower splits good for me cause I would rather do 4 days a week instead of six on push-pull legs so my routines like this mainly barbell work upper day underhand flat press than I do regular flat press than I do weighted chin-ups Tbarrows than standing OHP than latrails than rear delt flys dips curls finish it takes 30 mins to 40 its kind of lek LeRoy Colbert’s blitz but I didn’t like the fact there were not enough legs so I change it a bit for lower legs its squat split squat deadlift bridges and caft raise any info will help please and thank you oh yea I forgot Mon/Thurs/upper /Tues/Fri/lower

  • Ryan is dorian Yates the 1 u look up to because he gives similar advice for the lats and your both correct. Respect! Superb advice.

  • The problem w you is, you pick genuine topics alongside proper strategies but sometimes you sell things the same way u do with yourself. If i were to commit? Could it be utter bullshit

  • Your channel is very insightful and helpful. I personally appreciate your step by step movements and positioning of the hands and body on every single video of yours. Keep up the help for the rest of us that want to do it correctly and get noticeable gains.


    John Thomas.

  • Most dudes would be so creepy around a woman who looked like that in the gym,-in that setting.
    But MD is such a gentleman, he treats her with mad respect and a “dad like” sweetnesswell done!

  • John you should make a new workout program for the virus quarantine lol. A minimalist home workout to maintain until our gyms open back up. Call it “Global Pandemic”

  • can you do avideo for work out in a pool with poolweights. Ive had strokes an the pool is he best place for me to feel comfortable for physical therapy as i need to be safe.thank you.

  • NEW “FAST ACTION” Q&A After giving away more than 10,000 programs, it’s time to switch it up! Leave your most burning question about this video or any other training, PT or nutrition question within the first 2 hours of this video’s release (as a separate comment!!) and I will pick 8 to get a detailed reply from me right here in the comments. Answers will be posted within the first 24-48 hours of you leaving the question. Good luck!

  • Wow, those shoulders are impressive. I’m so glad to get to see a bit of your prep and workout. CONGRATS ON #1 at the Arnold. John is just the best… love everything he shares… always a big help with little tips!! ��

  • If you were to do pushups with your hands facing your feet (opposite direction of what we normally do) and have your elbows near your torso, would you achieve the same effect as Jeff’s first exercise?

  • I have so much problem feeling the contraction with any movement for doing back. I feel a little pump and that’s it and most of the time none

  • I feel so stupid. I spent years powerlifting, heavy deadlifts and squats. Usually with no belt. I have about 5.5% body fat and my obliques are massive:(. How do I make them shrink

  • Can you do a video for just beginners we starting our new life and put them on the right track not too heavy not too light so they don’t run from the weights… no cable machines gyms are closed

  • Love this! Is that you in the thumbnail? How do you get that column down the middle of the back? Traps to middle lats?? to erectors??? lol can you do a video on that please

  • To see the perfect v taper you need to get rid of that lower back fat,, most of the people have perfect v taper but they aren’t lean enough to see it

  • Not bashing..but…if you’re going to show before and after pics you should do them in the same pose… Just my opinion… Good video though

  • Thank you very much for such a perfect performance and explanation. It really helped me to correct my exercises. You are the best bodybuilder trainer I ever have seen.

  • Exercise 1: the dumbbell Tripod row

    Exercise 2: Underhand wide grip pull down

    Bonus exercise: the rocking pull down

    Exercise 3: the one arm high cable row

    Exercise 4: incline single arm lay stretch pull down

    Exercise 5: Single sides straight arm pushdowns
    *this is copied but I put it here so that I can find the timestamps as I click into this vid everytime, credits to @C Sherl

  • I’ve been training very thoroughly for some time now and your vids are helping me to maximize being shredded. Keep up the good work man

  • Amazing shoulder genetics, imagine if she got a male bodybuilder with a massively wide shoulder structure too what there kid would look like could be the next legendary bodybuilder. Incredible taper + overall aesthetic physique is a serious combination.

  • I’ve been doing conventional grip pullups without much tension or pump to the lats. I’ll give the reverse grips a try to see if I can get my lats to work more and my biceps less. Also rows just make me feel the burn in my traps and other upper back muscles. I’m skeptical on how much the lats are engaged doing rows since guys able to do front levers say that it’s impossible to hold a front lever with fully retracted scapula since the lats aren’t engaged. And rows pretty much fully retract your scapula.

  • Stay away from saturated fat, while having highest saturated fats ever on picture 5:05. And also this is by no means healthy, all those food groups are linked to higher rates of mortality/cancer/heart disease etc. Converting sugar in to fat is actually very energy consuming for your body to do.

  • Everything looks incredible. But her lats are INSANE!!! I have lat envy big time! �� Her conditioning is at such an elite level. The climb from 15th to 1st!?! Just so impressed. Love your training videos with women!!

  • Found the most incredible way to really stretch & train your latsuse a heavy resistance band attached to a pull up bar so it’s around shoulder width, with the body around 1 metre in front grab band at shoulder width with both Hands as if doing a pullover, the beauty of this is you can really feel the stretch plus you can adjust until comfortable. Did 4 sets of 8-12 reps and had the most insane pain the next day. Also prefer to seated option feels more natural.

  • I find it hard to make the mind muscle connection with my back muscles. I am guilty of using my arms in the movement more than my back muscles. Great video and I will try some of these new techniques. Thanks

  • Hey Ryan, I do deadlifts on my leg day and I dont do any bent over rows, I prefer T bar rows because I think regular bent over rows puts too much stress on my lower back, but by doing so I got underdeveloped lower back. therefore I would like to ask Is there any way
    to Isolate the lower back?

  • 30 Minutes for arms? No wonder mine fell off after 75 minutes of Ryan’s arm exersizes����.
    Super advise great spirit keep it coming.

  • Hey Ryan, love your videos and movements. Can you provide the sets and reps for this routine? Thanks and keep up the great work.

  • I’m a powerlifter hoping to learn more about bodybuilder-style focus and mind-muscle connection development. This is super helpful!

  • Hi wanted to say i am a great fan of you. I been following you for some time now.. i was wondering if you can do some video for home workout because of covid 19 all gym closed and people are over selling weight equipment… and i am out of a job.. so times are tuff..

  • Can you show how to make this effective with bands? I have easily mountable band locations, but the hardest is the lean forward as I don’t have a good seated position to work from.

  • I’ve been following you for about 9 months now and I have seen more progress during this time than with the other instructors I followed all put together. I’ll be 66 in a couple of months and I feel and look better then I did a year ago working out. Thanks for your examples they’re spot on.

  • I tried the “lean forward” today with the close grip pull down and rows… it really helped with my mind-muscle connection and IMMEDIATELY could feel my lats light up…. thanks Ryan!

  • I’ve never seen this gentleman before, stumbled across the vid, listened to his opening intro, non nonsense clear and summarized perfectly, that recognisable and efficient way of speaking in a gym.. EVERY syllable bang on the money.. I’m all ears lad..

  • Indoor water fall, I’m new to going to the gym and just started watching ur videos along with some other youtubers and I find yours to be the best you have inspired me and given me enough know how to feel confident in doing other exercises other than cardio and machines which I Clinged to the first month at the gym and even tho I felt great just moving more I wasn’t feeling any other results,not getting stronger not loosing any weight (I lost 4 pounds) *i go everyday and spend a hour working out but workouts where sporadic with no method… anyway from ur videos Iv easily been able to come up with a schedule and routine I can keep to that allows me to focus with purpose when going to the gym and I made notes on my list of key points you make about form and such, at first when trying to figure out the form I felt nervous because I def looked weird as hell doing the same work out a million fifteenth ways till I got it right I found my self lowering the weight ALOT just so I can keep the form exactly how u say in the videos as disappointing as this felt at first I am comforted by the fact I know I’m doing it right!! Thank you for everything I can’t wait to see the results! I know it will pay off eventually!

  • Thanks my g this video rly helped I was wondering why the lay and shoulder exercises I was doing weren’t working and them watching I went to the gym and did the workouts in the video and couple weeks later I’m a dorito!

  • Nice video Tanner, I don’t know if you have shown this in other videos but is there any way to achieve that physique without the vertical pulling, cable machine? With dumbells only for example. If there is a way, ‘then be sure to let me know, down below ����’ Ps, I have watched the video until the end and saw the fountain lol

  • I can confirm the scapula retraction. When I was 16 and started lifting I liked back training the most.
    Some older dude told me about mind muscle connection and I noticed how I could really feel my lats by doing scapular retraction. I did it in every rep always. I trained for maybe a year and only muscle that got visibly larger than others is my lats

  • Can you go into more detail specifically about the lower insertion point in the lats? I’ve got a wide upper back, you can see my lats from the front, but they look like shit at the lower insertion point, any advice would be welcomed! Keep the great content coming!

  • Litty I needed this badly I’m trying to gain muscle but shaping the growth from a slim body I have 6’2” 160 lbs to 185 lbs is the goal… any tips!!!????

  • In all 5 exercise movment is shoulder extension and adduction.so if i correct,in those movment lats more contract than other movment like shoulder horizontol abduction..i am correct sir?

  • Good video just couldn’t agree on the lateral raises… standing with a straight back will focus on the anterior delts more then people think.. you need to hunch over and see the top of the delts in the mirror to really work the medial delts…Larry Scotts version off lateral raises blew my side delts up after getting nowhere them and no one can argue with his delts.. Larry has a video of him showing his method

  • My friend said that if i keep deadlifting too much my lower back will grow too much compared to my upper back.. is this true or some bro-science shit.

  • My anatomy final: What is the technical name for a slipped disc?

  • Jesse you need back up.
    Hahahhahha…. You two are awesome.
    Thabjs for the tip
    Going to gym now.
    Give it a go..
    Your Alaskan friend

  • Guys, men, boys, GENTLEMEN. I’ve said it before, a million fold. You can ONLY look like YOURSELF! YOURRR GENETICS! Not everyone can be superwoman like this fine female specemint.

    I’m sorry, but someone had to say it. If you wanna look good, workout. Appreciate your body for what it is.

  • When I was in high school I worked on my obliques because I thought it would give me v-taper but now my obliques are bigger and I don’t have that v-taper bc of my obliques. Any tips?

  • Bodybuilder women:

    Heck yeah, tiny waist, BIG ARMS! OH YES!

    Most women: No WAY! Where’s my ass! Wheer’s my waist? My rounds??? I look like a man!

    Bodybuilder woman::D No body fat EVERYWHERE! Heck yeah

    Most women::( My curves

    (this is just an assumption btw, though most of my female friends dont dare to lift weights at the gym too much or they think they’d become a hulk lol

  • Great! I am not looking for a Super V-Back. But, a back. And, with poor back posture, I have difficulties to grow my lats with ” classic ” exercises. I need to pull my elbows back and tight to the body.
    I first tried some movement by myself at the gym and you encouraged me to keep doing these correctly. ������

  • Ryan, your variations on common workouts are amazingly effective.
    But when a skinny fat guy like me does them I look like a f*cking idiot

  • wow, she looks insane. the level of conditioning is ridiculous, she doesnt have any weaknesses in her physique anywhere that i can see!

  • Trust me, being born with a 25″ waist isn’t fun either. I can’t find weight belts that fit, nor could I wear “regular” fitting tshirts because they made me look fat af because of my shoulders. If you have a normal waist embrace it.

  • A properly developed back is critical for withdrawing a spear thrust, especially when the tip is lodged in a man’s pelvis.

    I’d hate to drop one of those weights on my tootsie.

  • I’m gonna start working out with my son he turned 18 he’s not fat but he’s not chiseled or anything so it’s really like a piece of clay and gave me some great ideas for 155 and then in decent shape so we’re gonna have fun thank you for helping us!!! ����������

  • This content is important to me, as a person that has tried to just “pain and gain” my way through training, not that effort is unimportant, but Ryan’s approach is much more thoughtful. It’s created with the idea in mind that focus, planning, and precision are, at least, as important as the effort. A technical approach, with a healthy dose his own personal ingenuity.

  • As opposed to guys that have the magic exercise this video goes right to the problem: execution. Very honest. A big like from an old, fat and grumpy PL coach, good job:)

  • Ok since this video was made over a year ago
    One like =
    10 pull-ups (strict)
    20 seated row
    And 10 pushups

    Let’s see what you will put me through

  • I love your videos! My ig is @pocv_fitt and I attribute my in the process v tapered look all to you! PS and I’ve had 4 kids and look better than I ever have in my life! Confidence through the roof!!Thank you �� ��

  • Sir we don’t have machinries in our gym, or any advance Accecerios, please recommend me exercise with dummbell Or anypress, or make a video on this please!

  • Better Reverse-Hyper move: Put an exercise ball on the bench, lay on the Ball ‘face down’, with Ball resting in your lower Ab area, and get to work… this way it’s a bit more challenging because you’ll need to balance yourself a bit more, forcing you to work out your stabilizer muscles as well.

  • I have genetically wide shoulders and I appreciate women making the most of theirs, but I still like my women with wide hips. The wider the better for me

  • i’m always focusing and slowing down but i’d never get the result i want, but boyy maa booyy that technic definitely will help out. i think i need to know more things to get it right. i will watch other vids and you have to help me out bro. good channel, i loved it

  • Great workout instructions John. In one of your other instruction video, you said to squeeze the bar with the hands as you do the movement. I have been doing that and it is amazing with better execution of movement & muscle mind connection. All the best Missy Truscott for your comps. You are looking great ��❤️��️‍♀️��

  • Great video and kudos to you and Ms Truscott! She looks phenomenal! One thing that I’ve known (due to being friends with a former competitor that turned into a judge) and it disappoints me is what John said about the judges and knowing competitors. Sometimes politics plays a part in this and imho, should NEVER outweigh true hard work and dedication aka results. But sometimes….

  • Great video but you can’t overcome high insertions. Top bodybuilders that compete in the Olympia such as Dennis Wolfe have high lat insertions and that’s how he will always be no matter what exercises he does

  • I’ve got 3 PT certs and I feel like I’m starting from scratch. I review Ryan’s info before each workout. It’s working better than ever.

  • Jeff, i have been following your videos and they are really informative and effective as i have also tried those exercises in gym and at some at home and get good results.

    One thing you must add in your videos is “diet” plan. Many people dont know the right diet we must add in our daily routine as per our physique and our goals.

    It will be really helpful for people like me who are looking for right diet plan.

    Looking forward for your next video ��

  • I just love this video.. now, i know the dos and donts when doing this kind of exercises.. i see most men in the gym do it in a wrong way everytime. Just few of my gym mates performs it correctly.

  • never done the underhand-grip dumbbell-row before, tried it today, and i think that´s gonna become a new fav exercise. Thanks for the tip Jeff

  • Hey man, want to try all my workout program & diet plans free for the next 7-days? Cool, head to our site to sign-up: http://bit.ly/2mjp8GW

  • Great video! But the last exercise requires a little more detail and clarification…because it’s a little hard to imitate the perfect form from this particular clip.

  • Have watched your videos for some time, after the intro., which tells us what muscle we’re going to work on, can we just get into the exercises?! Don’t need the added verbage of exercise science, “the horizontal plane, additional contraction, more abduction, approximation of the points…” Holy sh_t!! As Ralph Cramden said”Get on with it!!”

  • great video as always. Idea: make a video for people who don’t have this kind of equipment at home (eg: only have dumbbells or a bench-press) like a “low budget” home workout

  • hey,if anyone else is searching for work out abs try Mighty Shortcut Folio ( search on google )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my m8 got excellent results with it.

  • Most people have no idea what you’re talkin about…. including me… I have no idea what activation is or what it means… it sounds like a bogus word…. better mind to muscle connection what does that mean, and what does it do? Most people move their arms to move the weights and have no idea what’s supposed to happen!

  • I love the video, I just wish you would put the exercises together with their reps, with no explanations this time between exercises, so we can actually use the video for workouts. Thanks. I really aleays thought my lats were meant designed by God to stop half way, unlike Cristiano Ronaldo’s

  • Bruh my body is so weird now. since I’ve been boxing I stopped lifting to focus completely on muscle endurance. My pectorals are huge for my size (I’m a slim guy) and I have a very shape, but because I don’t lift my arms are super slim and doesn’t match up to the rest of my body. Oh well tho

  • How to get wide lats without building massive biceps alongside.. In short being athletic slim with wide lats like bruce lee or christiano ronaldo

  • Great video, I just started working out and I want to lose weight and get a 6 pack and better shape and more healthier,,, I’m looking for a program to begin from cero and get the body I always want.thanks I will watch more videos from u.

  • Hey Brett, I’ve seen and followed many a fitness channel, they tell you to do, you know, do this, do that, absolutely confusing sometimes… so your 3 exercises series seems pretty easy to follow… I tried them all and is happy to report that I can see much improvement in my muscle growth as compared to previous failed efforts. Thanks a bunch! By the way, I’m 51 this year… cheers!

  • Yes Thanks, had this today for first time. Knew i was doing something wrong.
    Now i know exactly on what i have to pay attention. Explaining and seeing what is happening in the back is just perfect for newbie to understand better.

  • It’s just awesome to have someone showing the right ways while a lot of people can’t get trainers! How do you think of going about working your side trunks or “belly”! Thank you!

  • I like these back variations. Something different that’s for sure. For some reason, longs arms maybe, I just didn’t/couldn’t feel like the first variation worked for me very well. The others did for sure.

  • I’m a strong guy, been working out a long time, occasionally watch some videos. But I started adding some of your techniques to my workouts and I have been getting more sore and better shape to my muscles. I did your cable stuff today for back and now I can feel them every time I move. Good stuff

  • Just do heavy deadlifts every 2 days and i will promise in a year you will have a huge back. And u dont need to do hundreds of exercises lel.

  • yooo jef:
    First thank u verry verry much for every awsome videos in here
    How can i have the same results by excercising in home (cz there is no jym now��),if thats possible

  • Man, good stuff. I was doing one of these exercises all wrong and didn’t realize why my medial delts were not growing and forming the way I wanted. You clarified it for me man. Thanks so much.

  • Today i have just started watching ur videos and i found them awesome,helpful and easy to follow. Thanks man. I am really appreciative. Keep it up.

  • Hi Shred.. this is me from Pakistan… ur workout video is reallyyyy impressive. Its realy helpfull, I am also recomended my friends to watch ur videos

  • I dont have any machines to work with, only dumbells. Is there any way to achieve additional taper instead of gaining more thickness?

  • Thank you for posting this video! I know now that I’ve been doing my shoulders and back exercises wrong for the past few months.��
