Get better at Pull Ups?? — ?This is a little trick to use a squat rack and barbell for leg assisted pull ups. You can also use a box or bench at normal pull up bar height. . ?????If you’ve struggled with pull ups, it’s really important to dial the resistance back and use methods of assistance. Start by using both feet to help, then just 1 foot… do a lot of holds at the top. Use 1 foot to go up, no feet to come down. Hold at mid range. You get the idea! . ?Don’t worry about reps, just spend 30-45 seconds per set, keeping tension on your lats the entire time. Isometric holds can be extremely helpful even if you’re strong at pull ups. . ??Lastly, I wanted to show my preferred way to do band assisted pull ups. This method with the band across a squat rack or rig provides a more smooth and consistent assistance from the top to bottom. . #StrengthCoachTherapy #TeddyTalksLats
