A quick question

Ok so heres my question, if two people both doing chin ups ones 6"3 and ones 5"6 who are both different weights say guy a is 98kg and guy b is 76kg. If they were both doing the same amount of reps who would find this easier. Guy A or Guy B?

Im inclined to say Guy b as he aas less weight to lift and has shorter arms but is this true! your comments are most welcome..

    I would think they would both find it equally easy. Say that two people are benching, one at 135lb and the other at 300lb with the same amount of reps. I think they would both have the same difficulty completing the reps, even though they're different weights. One person is just stronger than the other.

    So I think the answer would be that guy a is stronger, but they are working equally hard.

    But from a calorie perspective, guy a is exerting more energy since he is moving a larger weight for the same amount of reps as guy b

    240lbs @ 13% bf

    Squats -- 475lbs
    Deadlifts -- Romanian DL (only ones I can do with an injured back) -- 150lbs dumbells
    Bench -- 325lbs

    The question doesn't make any sense; there are too many variables to consider. Have guys A and B both been training for the same amount of time? Have they been doing the same routine? What kind of limb proportions do they each have?

    I see what you mean! Maybe i didnt think it through enough before posting i really thought it was a straight forward answer, lets say they both are equally as strong but Guy a is heavier and has longer arms ..
