Re: help training upper back

Wide grip Lat pulldowns to chest is considered good for building the upper back muscles to get the "V" look. Bentover dbl/bb rows and cable rows work the midback more but also hit the lats too.

Forearm exercises can be done through doing sulpinating bicep curls and isolation forearm/wrist curls with dbl or bb.

Re: help training upper back

Alot of working out is about mentality. Try picturing the muscle you're trying to hit flexing and filling with blood. Also, when doing back exercises, your hands should just be hooks, not clenched around the bar. If you're using machines lower the weight a bit and try these techniques.
