  • Assisted Pull-Ups

    It's common for new trainees, heavier trainees, and trainees that do other lifts prior to doing their pull-ups to have a hard time getting enough reps. Some people just do pull-downs instead, other use the gravitron. But....but if you really just want to do pull-ups instead? Get a few jump-stretch bands and you can.

    It's simple, choke a band (a monster mini, or a light is enough for most people) around the pull-up bar, and put your feet in the bottom of the band. BAM! now you can get the reps you want. Another plus is the resistance curve of the band is just about what your bodies is for the movement.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, so here one is:
