If you want to have that v-taper look where your upper body is proportionally bigger than your waist then developing a wider back is a must, to make your back bigger in terms of both width and thickness. In the end, I'll also show you how many sets and reps you'll need to do to incorporate these exercises into a workout. As we go through these keep in mind that to effectively build a bigger back you'll want to do 3 things for all of these exercises.
First, you need to concentrate on actually targeting your back instead of your biceps, triceps, or forearms. It will take some time to develop the neuromuscular connection between your brain and your back, but for all of these exercises you're going to want to try to pull the weight with your elbows, not your hands, and really squeeze your back with each rep as if you're trying to hold a pencil in between your shoulder blades.
Second, you'll need to progressively overload all of these exercises over time. The best way to do that is by trying to always incrementally increase the weight load you're using for all your back exercises as you get stronger.
And the third thing you'll want to do is come to full extension and get a really good stretch at the negative portion of all your pulling movements.
