I also can do fewer wide-grip pull/chin-ups. I'm pretty sure it's the mechanical resistance of the bones moving against each other, like a wire frame being twisted the wrong way. Supposed to be harder on the joints, too, but I've never entirely avoided them.
When doing narrow or "regular" width pullups I feel I am using my whole back and arms. But when I do wide grip pullups I only feel like I'm using my arms. I can do about 8 regular width ones and only 2 or 3 wide grip pullups. Is this normal and is there any benefit to using a wide grip?

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
