How well do pull ups work your biceps?
Well, it works for me. I barely train my biceps and they grow from all my pulling exercises. Pullups, bent over rows...ect
Just do it, and you'll see. If you start to see your biceps lacking then start adding exercises.
Lets say you have twin brothers. One only does pull ups and the other only does curls to build their biceps. Will each have the same results? Assuming that both use maximum resistance or what not.
When I say pull ups I am referring to palms away grip.
Yes, that would be a pull up. Chin up is the palms facing you. Both actually hit the bicep.
What kind of hypothetical question is that?
Flex your bicep with your fist facing you then flex with your fist facing away. Do you see a difference?
what he said and that's why both should be done
one looks like a hotdog, the other looks like a mountain!
I think you might have better functional strength in your biceps if you do pullups. Everyone I know who can do a lot of pullups are just very strong overall
I would venture to guess that pullups would work the bicep in a similar fashion to hammer curls while chinups or supinated bentover bb rows would be likened to a bb curl.
I will stab you with an ezcurl bar.
whichever one uses AAS
