    I personally feel that these type of pull ups are the best for purely hitting the lats, but they will not hit your bi's as hard as chinups.

    I can't picture how you can have only hammer grips but no way to do a regular grip.

    Hammer grips are great for lats. I feel reg. chins are overrated for bicep development, because of the slack on the muscle at the start (raised elbow up by head position). I think they are good for brachialis/peak development though.

    Sounds like my gym a little. There's no pullup station or anything, it's part of the big thing with several stacks (rows, pulldowns, crossovers I guess) in the middle. It has the wide grip pull up grips, and the hammer grip, but nothing in between to do chin ups, unless you go with a super wide grip which just feels uncomfortable for chins.

    Try finding something else in the gym which you can support yourself off to do pull ups. I found the little overhang in my garage works great for doing pull ups.

    I've got a similar thing in my gym. Basically the chinning bars are on the bars that connect the two weight stacks used when doing cable flies. These bars connecting the two stacks are large, and far to big to grip onto... In my gym there is a set of these hammer things protruding on one side, and then two grips for regular chins. I don't have the option to do close grip ones though.

    Does your gym have a power rack? Most of these have a chin-up bar on the top that no one realizes is there.

    You can use the Smith machine for chins also, just set the bar up high.

    they are better than pulldowns.

    neutral grip pullups seem to hit my biceps more than regular pullups but not as much as chins.
    Aye, infractions and I may behave. Ban, and I won't post... at least a while. And dying in my bed, many years from now, would I be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell the mods that they may take my reps, but they'll never take... OUR RANT!

    I do mine in the power rack because it's high enough for me, and the bar is more thick.
    If I have a training partner, I'll use a hammer grip attachment for the cables and put it over the pull-up bar between the cable stations. That is an @sskicker, but you neen someone to hold your feet for balance.

    Haha I love towel pullups but bodybuilders would be limited by their grip too much. It's like a mix between a pullup and a hammer grip though.
