Hey um currently on bgb and do weighted wide grip china palms away from mei had to stop due to shoulder pain it was causing...which would e better to do weighted for back developement pullups or chinups? And please correct me if I'm wrong pullups r palms facing me
Pullups are palms facing away. Chinups are palms facing you.
From what I've read most people tend to prefer pullups, but I get better results from chinups myself (plus they hit your biceps a bit). I would say the best thing you can do is try one for a couple months then the other for a couple months and see what gives you the best results, though if you can't do pullups due to shoulder pain you may have no choice but to do chinups . Though check your form to make sure you're doing the excercise right, as pain is usually an indication of poor form

No. Grip width matters not at all.
A wide grip does not build a wide back...that's just a myth.
And a wide grip places more stress on your shoulders than a narrow grip. Built (the poster who designed BGB) stated this as well. I believe she even posted some links to this effect.
chinups are better, just do those if they don't hurt your shoulders
