KNNBCCB lah, all dunno how to follow simple instructions izzit? See that tree over there? Run to it and say sorry.

cowed77, as for ur saying that pull-ups=big guns...i read this article by dave tate (dont ask for link, either tnation or elitefts lol) saying that he believes that if u want big biceps, u need direct bicep work. pull-ups can get ur arms bigger, but there's a limit to it.

personally, i havent seen my arms getting bigger/more swole from pull-ups. there was even a period where i train pull-ups very extensively(might do it again lol). my pull-ups was in the region of 20+ (but dont think now can) but my arms remained more or less the same.

Some people, incl me, are back-dominant when pull/chin up.

Besides the close grip chin, try also Arnold's muscle-mind connection, and play around with your torso angle to feel for the best positions for biceps, also feel for the point along the ROM that hit your biceps most and do isometric hold, or, pre-fatique your back before the chin.

Really depends on how the individual responds since no 2 persons are alike. Personally I would say, go for weighted chin-ups (supinated close-grip) keeping the reps between 6 - 8 & training to failure for a couple of weeks if you want to whack the biceps.

When I was in my 20s & 30s I've benefited from both weighted chin-ups & curls - both worked in getting my biceps up. For my triceps however, only weighted dips & close-grip bench presses really worked; direct triceps work only helped a little bit..

so go experiment what works for you...

Rather than update your latest post, you should update your original post right? Easier to refer.

side track here a bit here....

For chin-ups to whack the biceps, pre-exhaust works but only for a couple of weeks; try this:

2 pre-exhaust sets using HIT Mike Mentzer style:

Do 1 set of curls: tempo 2 secs up 4 secs down. 6 - 8 reps to failure immediately followed by slow chin-ups: 60 secs up 60 secs down: do as many reps as possible (most ppl can only do 1 rep & if you're really strong maybe 2)

After that rest 60 secs & do 1 more pre-exhaust superset like the 1st one.
