How many do you do?

I find weighted pull-ups and chin-ups to be the most important moves for a solid upper back and rear delts. I don't even do rows, maybe every other week.
I mix up my sets, and I almost always try to pull at least 25 using only my body weight after I've performed all of my weighted sets. I still cable row. I still perform dumbbell rows. I still perform T-Bar rows. I still perform lat pull-downs. My point?! There's a place for everything. Pull-ups are great, but there is more to developing a great looking back than just the pull-up.
