Assisted Pull-Ups

Assisted Pull-Ups

If you have never done pull-ups before, or are still working on performing your first complete pull-up, assisted pull-ups will be perfect for you! No exercise should go undone in our workout, and just because you can’t fully do them is no excuse!

An assisted pull-up can be done several ways – essentially you just need something to offer slight assistance to you. The gym has a million-dollar piece of equipment called a “Pull-Up-Machine” which you can load with weights and it helps you… other people can use a 10$ bench, a plastic box, bands, etc. Using anything other than a super-expensive piece of equipment is particularly important if you are doing this at home!

The idea is to give yourself as little assistance as possible. You are much better off struggling like crazy through one pull-up than breezing through ten! The only person you are cheating is yourself! That’s against the Never Do Nothing Code of Conduct!!

If you are unable to perform a full pull-up, don’t forget to end your assisted pull-up session with an attempt to lower yourself as slowly as possible. This is going to be hard, but work through it. Hang on as long as possible. Don’t forget that this will pay off in the long run and before you know it, your grit and determination will pay off with a full pull-up!
