Building a V-SHAPE back with dumbbells?18309

Hello guys,
I am wondering if you guys could suggest some exercises only with dumbbells that will target the back and could help me achieve a V-SHAPE body in the future.
I attached a picture showing what I mean by a V-SHAPE body.

Any help will be appreciated.

Anything where you pull the dumb bell toward you.

Also eating bananas

Why just dumbbells? No access to a gym?

You can do a lot with DBs. All variations of rows and pullovers. Beyond that, find somewhere that you can do pullups. A local playground perhaps?

Part of the illusion is keeping the lower back and waist as tight as possible. Doing all of the above with plenty of stiff leg dead lifts, hyper extensions and of course different variations of ab work will bring the waist in and help with that v taper👍

I second @wannabemuscular. If you can get or have access to a pull up bar you should be able to make a lot of progress with that, though you'll want to start adding weight (as simple as throwing some books in a backpack or something) once you can hit a lot of bodyweight reps.
