Banded Assisted Pull-Up
Next year is the year you accomplish your goal of doing pull-ups, and adding a band for assistance is key to getting there. Here's a guide on how to master the pull-up.
- Place a large resistance band securely around a pull-up bar. A band with more resistance will provide you with more assistance/momentum to pull yourself up.
- Stand on a stable object (a bench will work), and grip the pull-up bar. With one hand, place the band around the arch of your shoe. Fully extend the banded leg.
- With a neutral spine and your abs engaged, pull yourself up. The band will provide you with momentum to lift your body up. Lower back down to the starting position.
