Any advice on options for people that have a hard time doing chin ups on a straight bar because of wrist pain? I workout at a box only, and have no other way of doing chinups, but straight bar chins kill my right wrist for some reason. Same with heavy straight bar curls. I guess i could use rings, that thought JUST now occurred to me haha.
Also, ill say that i can tell a bit of a difference in musculature from doing mostly pullups like you mention above. I havent done chins in probably a year or more because of my wrist, and my upper back is getting thick from weighted and volume pullups.
