Instructions: How To

Focusing on the eccentric (lowering) phase of the chin-up, the Loop Band Negative Chin Up uses a looped resistance band for assistance. This exercise emphasizes controlled descent, improving strength and muscle growth in the biceps, forearms, and back, and is ideal for building up to unassisted chin-ups.

  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. Begin with your chin above the bar.
  4. Brace your core and while resisting gravity, slowly lower yourself into a dead hang position.
  5. Return to the starting position and repeat the movement.
