Instructions: How To

Similar to the Negative Chin Up but with a wider, overhand grip, the Loop Band Negative Pull Up targets the lats, biceps, and shoulders. The loop band provides assistance, allowing the practitioner to focus on a slow and controlled descent, enhancing muscle endurance and strength.

  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 overhand grip.
  3. Begin with your chest close and 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.
