Pull up Bands can help you get over the strength gap that’s keeping you back from achieving dead hang pull ups
The pull up bands progression series relies on standard fitness resistance bands to offset some of your bodyweight and make pull ups easier. By doing reps with the bands, you improve your strength and open the door to eventually doing pull ups without any assistance.
The thicker your pull up band, the more weight it takes off you, and the easier the assisted pull ups you do with it are. The weaker and heavier you are right now, the thicker your band will have to be to compensate.
So how thick of a resistance band do you need when you’re starting off?
It depends on how strong you are currently in your lats and biceps (which is hard to quantify if you can’t yet do a single pull up), and what your current bodyweight is.
Take your first band and do assisted pull ups with them at least three times a week, with at least one rest day between each session. Aim for two to three sets of the maximum amount of reps you can do in each training session.
Once you can do five to ten strict dead-hang pull ups with your starting resistance band, it’s time to upgrade to the next lightest one, which you’ll use till you can do a minimum of five full pull ups on it.
Generally, most people will be able to do one to three pull ups on the their next-hardest band when they’ve achieved somewhere between five and ten pull ups on their current band. Once you can do five pull ups, you can upgrade to the next resistance band and so on.
If you follow the pull up bands series consistently, you’ll quickly progress to toward your goal of unassisted dead hang pullups.
