Chin-ups are much tougher.....consequently most people prefer to do pull-ups because their higher personal totals appeal to their vanity.

I think most boxers mix it up. Sometimes they do pullups and then sometimes they do chinups to lessen boredom in training. If you are a fighter I think you should do both. "A complete fighter needs a complete program." :)

you do a chin-up if you want to work your bicept
you do a pull-up if you want to work your tricept

thats the difference, and like what was already said, im sure boxers do both.

Bicep curl are fine for a boxer, if you lift the right weight at the right amount of reps it helps.

Pull ups work your mostly your delts -shoulders-, and upper back.

Chinups, work your biceps, and mid back.

The statement "A complete fighter needs a complete program" is true. I think that a bit of yoga (doing handstand workouts) can enhance the workout. be carefull not to start out trying too much. Start slow and work up

Pullups (overhand grip) work your lats primarily but also biceps and back.
Chinups (underhand grip) work your biceps primarily but also forearms and lats.

Alright guys, here's the skinny on pull-ups and chin-ups. The reason the over hand grip is harder is because when the hand is pronated(palms facing away from you) you reduce the use of your biceps. But you increase the use of you braciiradialus. Thats the muscle that connects from your forearm and originates under the bicep. Body builders train this muscle to give their bicep a more full look, since it will grow and push out the bicep. My advice to everyone is always start with your hands pronated and finish with chin-ups.

i just do clean and jerks explosively ,1 set of 225 10 reps then immediately i move to the medicine ball,toss it straight up and catch it with hands straight up 25 times, done with shoulders

i hate pullups because it's hard to do em explosively..feels like they slow me down whereas when you got chalk/powder and a bar you can be very explosive and it makes you stronger with the olympic lifts imo.
