Adds resistance to wide grip pull-ups using a loop band, increasing difficulty and muscle engagement in the lats, shoulders, and arms. This variation is perfect for those seeking to progress in their pull-up performance while focusing on upper body strength and endurance.

  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 a wide 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.
