FWIW...distance traveled isnt always the same on pullups (or anything else)

I'm 6'6" 215 (trying to get heavier everyday)...when I'm doing a pullup I have to move my heavier weight much farther than someone of more typical height (assuming they have typical arm length). Beyond the Whiteboard will do these calculations for you.
