How different is the muscle recruitment/strength gain in a weighted pull up vs assisted OAP for the same reps? Since that probably didn't make much sense, if I can do 45lb weighted pull ups for 7 reps, and do assisted (I know "assisted" greatly varies) OAPs to where I can only manage 7 reps similar to my weighted max, will it be somewhat the same in terms of strength gain the benefits from weighted? I understand it is a unilateral movement which would change things. I can do 20 pull ups +/- a few depending on the day and I was looking to switch my training over to be more strength focused in the 3-5 rep range. The problem is I don't have weights or access to a gym to do weighted pull ups so I wanted to "replace" them with assisted OAP. Any thoughts?
Hey guys, I tried some one arm (OA) top position chin ups (CU) holds - I think Coach suggested them for increasing strength in weighted CU. Then I tried some pronated OA pull up (PU) top position holds - didn't quite work out, but I noticed something I want to ask you now: OACU is basically like a narrrow grip two armed CU. But OAPU is not like a narrow grip two arm PU, but more like a neutral/parallel grip PU with a little twisting so as to look like a pronated PU ? Because that is what I felt. Thanks a lot
