Coach Tina: Mastering Pullups with Resistance Bands
Coach Tina describes how to use Motus Edge resistance bands to improve your performance and master the elusive pullup. One of the best compound movements for your body, the pullup is effective for strengthening your lats, rhomboids, trapezius and biceps. However, it is also one of the most difficult moves to master AND maintain proper form.
Most beginners are barely able to complete 1-2 pullups using their body weight, which can be discouraging and often leads to a breakdown in proper form to increase reps. This reduces the efficiency and power of the movement, while increasing the risk of injury.
Incorporating a Motus Edge resistance band will allow you to remove as much (or as little) of your body weight from the equation, so you can concentrate on perfect form and complete muscle activation. With five levels of resistance to choose from, you can find the perfect level of assiatnce for your pullup goals. By completing more reps (in perfect form) you will begin to see progress in your non-assisted pullups. In no time at all, you'll be repping unassisted pullups as a warmup!!
