Sadik Hadzovic’s Olympia Back Workout


Olympia competitor and GAT athlete Sadik Hadzovic is known for his huge personality and onstage success, but also—let’s be clear— for those broad shoulders and that impressive V-taper. It’s arguably the most coveted torso build since the era of Frank Zane.

“Everybody wants the V-taper, the illusion, the tiny waist, the broad shoulders,” explains Hadzovic, “but you really have to start with the lats. Get them as wide as you possibly can.”

Use this workout to build width and thickness in your back to achieve the perfect tapered look.
