Lat Pulldown/Pull-up Ratio?

I have a question. Suppose I weigh 60kg. If I do one pull up, how much weight would it be equivalent to doing on a lat pull machine ?

This would be an extremely hard number to nail down because there are so many variables to account for; your height, body proportions, and the particular machine you use will all impact how much work you actually do. Unless you know a bored mechanical engineer just don’t worry about it.

60kg

Go to the lat pull-down machine and see what weight you can perform only one rep with?

Get stronger on the lat pulldown, then proceed to pull ups.

haha, did i read something wrong or am i just tripping

but wouldnt it be the same as 60kg

I can do pull ups at 220, but i cant lat pull down 220.
