Never tried, no. I used to be able to increase reps fairly regularly with just doing normal pull ups...I've just gotta be patient now until I build up the strength again. I was using the gravitron yesterday and lifting only about 60% bw, so I'll gradually work my way up from there...Once I progress to unassissted pull ups I may try doing only negatives as a way to ease myself into it. I've actually been worried about that switch lol so this could prove quite useful.
