Pull-ups involve several major muscle groups and work your lats, deltoids or biceps muscles. Doing pull-ups can be a very challenging exercise if you are starting out. Certain variations of the pull-up exercise certainly influence different muscles more than others. This can relate to the exact position used or the chosen hand grip on the bar for example.

How to choose the best one for your level training?

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 depends on how strong you are currently in your lats and biceps and what your current bodyweight is. 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.


Only do pull-ups a maximum of three times a week – not every day. This will help you rest your back and arm muscles properly and prevent over-training. Always warm up with five to 10 minutes of aerobic activity before you train for pull-ups.
