Instructions: How To

Similar to other Pull Up variations, this is a compound exercise that primarily targets your back. This is an assisted variation which is great for anyone looking to build the strength needed to perform a full set of Pull Ups. Unlike some other assisted variations, the use of a loop band allows for the assistance to decrease as you move closer and closer to the bar.

  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. 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.
