    Do weighted chin ups and pull ups add a lot of mass?

    Are they worth doing for mass?

    It depends. I do them almost exclusively. I keep getting stronger but not larger. The deciding factor is on you and your diet. I don't eat enough to get big but if you eat enough and do weighted chins yes you will gain mass.

    Chin ups, Pull ups and Dips are a great addition to a workout.

    Look at people eat alot and do alot of wide grip pull/chins. I.E Marines, Navy SEALs.

    Especially Navy SEALs. What do most of them have in common? Wide upper backs and big arms. Not so much chest on most of them, but that's because in those circles there's a focus on functional training, and to be honest, there's not many cases in life where you're going to be trapped under a bar :P. Not saying they have weak chests and bench, most of them seem to have decent chest size, just not as developed as their backs are.

    yeah WG pullups are awesome, might incorporate chins soon also, hear theyre good for bi mass.
    My success is achieved by reaching failure. When I can't do one more rep, that's when I've succeeded.

    Forever cutting.
