    Thumbs up

    there are no negatives to this kind of pull up. It just hits a different area on your back more so than other. When i do them i feel the most in the lower lats and biceps. Im not saying its for the lower lats that's just where it hits the most on me.
    Keep doing them.

    Pull-ups: Less biceps, more back. Harder.
    Chin-ups: More biceps. Easier.
    Neutral Grip Chin-ups: Most biceps involvement. Easiest.
    Easiest on shoulders, elbows and wrists: Neutral Grip Chin-ups

    here's something to try,

    Do as many wide grip pull ups or pull ups as you can, then do as many chins, then finish off with as many neutral grip pull ups. The ultimate super set, have fun.

    theres really not much difference as far a back development goes. If anything it put the arms in a stronger / more natural position than most other forms of pull up.

    Neutral works back and biceps more equally, IMO. Pull ups = more back & Chin ups = more biceps

    I love doing weighted neutral grip as I can really pile on the weight and hit my lats, back, and bis hard. All at the same time.

    Using a neutral grip may be more shoulder and wrist-friendly to you than the other variants. Other than that, not a great deal of difference, as long as each variant is performed correctly.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.
