    In comparison to the far superior pull-up and even neutral grip.....yes.

    Grip varies bicep activation. Do all 3 as you will, disregard bro science. Not to be that guy always talking about injuries, but I can't supinate my hands anymore without feeling it in my shoulders due to fvcking up my shoulders (partially due to exclusive pronated grip pull ups, partially due to pronated grip sport which is highly conducive to shoulder injuries).

    aye - thought chin-ups were one of the acceptable ways to hit your biceps.

    On another note, I'm 6'2" 200-205, and a little chubbier than I would like - should I stick it out and just try to maintain my weight while getting stronger? I've been doing that for a fair bit, and made pretty significant strength gains, but aesthetically, it's had really minimal effects. Or, should I be stricter with my diet, and try to drop to 185, then work up again? Is the whole thing irrelevant if I was eating correctly?

    Some of the better advice given lately.


    Over 75% of guys overtrain and they don't even realize it. You don't take an extra scoop of your pre-workout if you're feeling tired, you rest that day.

    depends on how much you're hurting. from what you've said it seems you got off relatively easy, i.e. no permanent damage done. I'd probably just let the thing heal, ice it if needed and take medication to get rid of the pain.


    rowing amirite?

    Does he not wonder why the bars are set so much lower than the bottom of his ROM?
