Default Push or pull longer to recover?

So lower body takes long to recover than upper body, but is there a difference in pushing muscle vs. pulling muscles in recovery time?

just curious cause my lats seem to take longer now to recover.

I think it depends on what you are doing.

The higher your level of strength in pushing or pulling the longer it's going to take to recover.

High level strength moves like planches are going to take a longer time to recover from, and the same thing with one arm chins as well... than things like regular dips and pullups.

Also, a general rule is that smaller muscles recover faster than larger muscles.
