This is a good exercise for those who are on a definition/toning exercise cycle. It is not the type of exercise one should do if mass-building is the goal. The key to getting the most out of this exercise is to do it without rushing the movement. If it's done with a slower pace, it really does wonders for creating separation lines between muscles on the back and that's something that looks impressive.
