I've used the assisted pullup machine, but I don't think the movement is all that similar to a real pullup. I should use bands instead but haven't gotten around to wanting to spend the money. I've tried doing negatives on the playground but it can be difficult to find a playground with the right configuration of stuff. I tried negatives in the gym. Why do they put the pullup stations SO HIGH? I can't reach any of them. Back on the playground, I tried the kind of pullup where your feet are on the ground but I banged my head trying to use a ladder on one of those playground things. I haven't found another better playground yet. I decided to just forget about pullups for now.
