The broadest muscle of the back is known as “Latissimus Dorsi”. It is the dorso-lateral muscle on the trunk that is covered by the trapezius muscle on its median dorsal region. Latissimus Dorsi is the larger, flat muscle that is posterior to the arm and is responsible for adduction, extension, transverse extension, internal rotation of the shoulder joint and flexion. It also plays a very important role in lateral flexion of lumbar spine.
There are numerous resistance training exercises that you can perform to increase the strength, size and power of this muscle. Examples of those exercises include Elbow flexion, Chin-Ups, Pull-Ups, Pull-over, Bent-over row, Dumbbell-rows, Deadlift, Pull-down, and T-bar row. Elbow flexion is a compound exercise that tends to develop biceps, back muscles and deltoids.
There are various dietary supplements available on the market, which help increase size and strength of muscles including Latissimus Dorsi when consumed along with resistance training exercises.
