I personally have never had enough bodyweight strength to do pullups or chins. This is not to say I don't regret working on them. I do. But I recall only once in my life being able to do a single pullup, and that was a kip.

I am a big advocate of chin ups. I think they are a great choice if someone can do them to begin with.
