Instructions: How To

The Loop Band Chin Up uses a looped resistance band attached to a pull-up bar to assist with the chin-up motion. This variation is perfect for beginners or those working on improving their upper body strength, as the band helps lift some of the body's weight, making the chin-up more accessible.

  1. Anchor the band at the center of the pull-up bar creating a stirrup for your feet.
  2. Place one foot in the stirrup and grab onto the pull-up bar with an underhand grip.
  3. Hang with your arms extended and body in a straight line.
  4. Brace your core and pull your chest up to the bar by flexing your elbows down into the backside of your ribcage.
  5. Once your chin has reached the bar, lower yourself back to the starting position at a normal pace, and repeat the movement.
