I always thought chinups were more for biceps until i saw a dorian yates video on back and he said chin ups are actually better for hitting lats than pull ups because of the range of motion. What is everyones take on this? chin ups or pull ups?
Both are good if you ask me. Agreed that chin ups help hit your Bis a little better, so they fit into my "pull" day well.
Sometimes ill do pulldowns, and then finish the set with chin ups.
i think they work your lats differently and complement eachother perfectly, i like to superset them.
I think weighted pull ups have given my lats more width, while weighted chin ups have given them more length.. I also use and feel it more in my lats with the pull ups..
i did chin ups today instead of pull ups and i think i like them more, i felt it more in my lats doing chin ups
to be clear, pullup=palms toward the body grip = more bi less back
chinup=palms away from body=more lat
is this the nomenclature you guys are using, cause i think OP had it reversed?
Killerkandia perhaps has it reversed?
maybe i am wrong?
****, now im confused lol
Pull downs are palms out, like pullups are palms out.
chinups is a close grip, plams towards you, where you pull your chin up past your hands
chin ups dont have to be close grip, they can be shoulder width. pullups work more of the inner back and chin ups work lats better because of the range of motion
I pull my chin past the bar with both types of grip.....WTF AM I DOING?! LOL
I give a f**K!!
i hate chin ups and pull ups and my lats are damn good without em, i know im gonna take a ton of crap but i think there veryy overrated and not essential.. Id do some bodyweight pullups maybe and thats it..
chins should be part of any back routine for sure! i love em'
palms out = good lat builder IME.

How well are chin ups compared to bb rows?
Have u guys tried to pit them against eachother
palms facing away is a pullup, palms facing in is a chinup. Chinups work more of the lower lat.
