I used to think Pull-ups would do that (wide set hands, forward-facing palms) but that's not been the case for me. Seems to strengthen my shoulders and the areas around my armpits more than anything else.

Wondering if there's something I can do with the iron gym for that but thinking not.
Try a closer grip chin up or inverted row.
