I've never seen in my years of gymceling a white or black guy doing weighted pull up. Each time I see someone using the dip belt for pull ups its an asian.

Why?

weighted pullups are stupid.


the amount of stress put on the shoulder joint in a bodyweight pullup is already extreme.

they are more difficult but more difficult =/= better.

probably because we dont weigh as much in the first place + shorter arms due to typical shorter height in general

ive done weighted pullups and it seemed like an asian things to do
