Assisted or negative pullups?
Which exercise will help me achieve a standard bodyweight pull-up more quickly: assisted or negative pullups? - Chris D., Springfield, MA.
Go with negative pull-ups, as you’ll still be forced to handle your entire bodyweight. Since everyone can lower more than they can lift, you’ll overload more of your muscle fibers, increasing your pulling strength in a short amount of time.
