Are Pull Ups Easier for Small People?
I'm a relatively small guy (5' 10" 170lbs) and can do a fair amount of pull ups both strict and kipping. I'm a big proponent of the importance of pull ups as it relates to firefighting and firefighter safety. But I always get the response from bigger guys at work (that can't do pull ups) that its easy for a smaller guy like me.
I disagree with them and say that I'm still pulling the same % of body weight. I argue that it's more muscle vs mass than just mass alone..
Does this make sense? Can anyone with more of a exercise physiology background provide more data or rational?
