I have been reading Beyond Bodybuilding, and have recently reread the chapter about 'Progressive Movement Training'. In summary, you can gain squat or bench press strength by lifting heavy with a partial range of motion, and gradually increasing the range of motion. It seemed like pistol squats are trained that way in Naked Warrior, and I was curious if pull ups, and perhaps OAPUs could be trained using the same method and if anyone has had success doing so.

Thanks.

Bands and chains are often used for accommodating resistance and may be more useful than partial range training because you maintain the full range motor pattern.

For pull-ups, adding a resistance band to a pull-up bar along with a dip belt with more weight than you can actually do is another method of working on overloading at the top.

Just a band can help improve power out of the hang.
