Coach's Tips

At first, start by putting the band on your foot. And then move it step by step to your knees to increase the difficulty. Be careful not to do it too fast!

How to Band Assisted Chin Up

Starting Position

1. Begin by standing in front of a pull-up bar and grabbing it with an overhand grip slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.

2. Place a band over the bar and loop it around your feet.

3. Keep your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart.

4. Place your arms straight and engage your core.

Proper Form

1. Bend your elbows and pull yourself up until your chin is over the bar.

2. Slowly lower yourself back to the starting position.

3. Repeat the exercise for the desired amount of reps.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale deeply as you lower yourself down.

2. Exhale as you pull yourself up.


1. Make sure to keep your core engaged and your back straight throughout the movement.

2. If the band is too tight, you can adjust it for a more comfortable exercise.

3. Make sure to not jerk your body as you pull yourself up.
