chins

I've been using wide grip chins during my back day. I was wondering if it matters much as to what grip you use. I've been using palms facing, away from me, grip. However, i find it easier to use palms facing, to me, grip. Any thoughts?

    I personally try em with palms facing away as it doesnt recruit teh biceps as much. If you do them with palms facing to you the biceps are used a lot more...

    You could do both as well...

    Widegrip palms away, close grip palms in (hits more biceps)

    I prefer close grip because
    1) I don't do any direct bicep work
    2) The range of motion is greater than wide grip
