    Its both depending on the technique you use, you can issolate the back of biceps more. I do chinups on biceps days.
    "In AUSTRALIA
    Each year there are 470 000 adverse events, 18 000 deaths, and 50 000 permanent disabilities arising from medical error and negligence each year. This is four times higher compared to the USA." (Second oppinion, GERMOV quote, page 293)

    353 fatal car crashes were recorded on Australian roads in 2008 (RTA, 2008). You are 50 TIMES more likely to die from medical negligence from a DOCTOR compared to being fatally injured in a car crash and they say driving is dangerous.

    It works your back and biceps and other muscles. It's a compound movement.

    Thumbs up

    Chinups (underhand) focus more on the biceps, but chinups & pullups both hit your back & biceps to varying degrees - so just alternate between the two for combined benefits.

    Chin-ups are performed with an underhand grip which hits lats,rear delts,lower traps,teres major,biceps,brachialis,and helps with grip strength.Its a very effective upper body exercise.

    I do close grip chin ups for biceps and wide grip pull ups for back. That being said chin ups and pull ups both work back and biceps but just to varying degrees.

    The only difference in the two is that a chin up puts your biceps into the movement more usually makes it the stronger of the 2 more most people while pull ups use the brachialis muscle to a greater degree and less biceps. That being said they all hit the same muscles in the back and remember the wider the grip the shorter the range of motion as well.
