What a great question! In my case, it seems I'm flying against the grain, as my max on weighted pullups and weighted dips is about equivalent. (I can, however, do more unweighted pullups than dips, though I suspect that may be the result of kipping on the pullups - I'll have to test that.)

My broader suspicion is simply that there are more unweighted pulls than unweighted presses. Handstand pushups, as one of the few unweighted presses, make an interesting example, as I suspect littler guys hold an advantage on that exercise despite it being a press.

I'll definitely be pondering this one for a while.
