comment how to pull with your Lats
Robin : Just my two cents in case you are interested in bulking up. Take your diet seriously and you will see the results. I don't believe that you need to be genetically gifted if you want a bigger body. It is just that most people prefer to train and not worry too much about the diet. I was the same "not bulking up" for years and then when I became more diet conscious I put up a lot of size. Just my two cents IMO bulking up isn't a big deal, one should enjoy everything :-)

John : Can you please elaborate the last paragraph more. I liked the idea of trying to squeeze the elbow to the body, it works. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment how to pull with your Lats
Robin : I am not convinced with the last two lines in your post. My Biceps are already big and I believe because they love to do all the work in my back workout, my back isn't stimulated enough. This advice would only make my arms bigger and keep the back lagging. What do you think ? However, I will try the advice in my next back workout and see if I feel differently.

Also what barbell rowing position do you suggest, back parallel to the floor or inclined at 45 degrees like Yates rows ?

I will also like to add that I am not a beginner to weight training, I have been working out close to 10 years now. However, I was never into building size until recently the reason being I was never very diet conscious.

comment How to workout Rhomboids and lower Trapezius
Thanks for the answer it was indeed very informative. I will try the Smolov program. I have some questions, how many exercises to do per body part ( Back in this case ) ? How often should I train my back ? I am right now following Reg Park’s beginners routine which involves 3 Full body workouts a week. I do 5 sets of each exercise with 5 reps/set. I do Pullups in one workout followed by Barbell Rows in the next work out. Also doing shrugs on alternate workouts.

I moved to a location with temperatures around 15-25 decress celsius but it seems my problem might be because of increased TSH :-( .

Hi Michael, thanks for the answer. I am already increasing my Protein intake and trying to sleep in a heated room. This has caused some improvement, don't know which is working.

Hi Lauren, thanks for the answer. I still try to exercise atleast 5 times a week but I have to skip some times because of previous days soreness. Also I agree with you warming up and exercising sore muscles makes matter worse.
