Want to do bodyweight pull-ups but haven’t quite got there?
Currently at a sticking point with your training and not progressing as quickly as you’d like? Let’s change that.
Band assisted pull-ups are one of my favorite exercises for progressing to unassisted bodyweight pull-ups.
Unfortunately, many trainees are not getting the greatest reward possible from this seemingly simple exercise. There are a couple important training cues you want to apply to get the most from this excellent exercise. Doing so will have to progressing quicker to a good ole bodyweight, unassisted pull-up (or chin-up, if you prefer).
In addition to seeing how to correctly perform a band assisted pull-up, you’ll also see how to make the exercise a bit more advanced so you can progress even quicker to unassisted pull-up variations.

How to Correctly Perform Band Assisted Pull-ups
In some training circles the band assisted pull-up isn’t a favorite method for working toward an unassisted pull-up. Now, I will say that some trainees would be better off starting with a cable pull-down variation before switching to band assisted pull-ups. For example, trainees who have a good amount of excess fat to lose would likely be much more comfortable, and be able to make greater initial progress, using a cable pull-down variation.
The next time you perform a band assisted pull-up (or chin-up, neutral grip, etc), please be sure to apply . . .
