Pull-Up with Band
For the Pull-Up with Band, step one foot into the band and stand up straight so your body weight can lower the band to the ground. Once steady on the ground, place the other foot into the band and grap the pull up bar. Proceed with the natural motion of a pull up, pulling yourself up and then lowering yourself down. The band will provide the necessary resistance to help propel you through the pull up motion.
This exercise focuses on the arms and muscles of the upper torso. Forearm and bicep muscles must be activated to maintain flexion in the elbow, and your lats must be activated to keep the arms near the torso. The serratus anterior muscle is also used to hold the scapula against the thoracic wall.
