Good article and good Draper. In the small time that I stay in the gym before my sicks of the last month of the year, I did the first two, but the pulldows where to neck and not to chest.  It's more dificult and I think it would shock better the upper lats, as well as the romboid and the other muscle that I dont't remember his name for gaing width in the lats.

The static holds that Vince recommends is a really good way of
getting mind to muscle connection! ;)

static holds?  Can you explain it?  If it's in the text, I couldn' read it, it was so small.

When the bar touches your chest or abdomen depending upon if you doing rows
or pulldowns/pullups, you hold it there in the contracted position for a count of 6.
That's usually 3-4 seconds but if you count slow it's more like 5-8 sec.

Or, I do that for the rows and for lat machine also.  Doing the exercise hardest with stricter form and rest pause of several seconds, not with heavy weights all the time.  a very good different approcuh to weightraining. I love it.
Very good for small bones structures.  :)

You could try the 2 minute rep for contact an muscle growth. You start with the concentric part of the lift you choose and that goes on for one minute then you do the eccentric for 1 minute. Rest one minute and finish it of with one set 1x8 on a weight you usually do 3x8 on.
