Band Assisted Pull-ups and More

I have created a video tutorial below to discuss different ways to use resistance bands as a means to progress with bodyweight movements such as pull-ups, dips, and pushups. I first demonstrate the traditional band assisted pull-up, and then discuss a horizontal variation that isn’t as common.

You will also see how bands can intensify the pull-up and allow for a limited impact explosive pushup variation.


  1. thanks for the great ideas, Ross! I have 2 teenage sons and the bands are a great way to get them the reps, build some explosiveness, gain confidence(not to mention let the old man crank out a few more pain free reps!).
