Break through the pull-up barrier by adding bands.
Secure the band under your foot for one level of assistance or under your knee for a different level of assistance.
Keep in mind - to provide the necessary assistance, the band will need to be stretched quite a bit. You may need a box, chair or other stable object to stand on.

- Low Rows and Lat Pull-Downs

Take your Squat, Bench and Deadlift to the next level with bands.
Here are a few ways resistance bands can help you in barbell training:
- Use bands to assist your lifts. Add bands to assist your squat and bench by looping a pair of bands to the top of a rack or rig to help pull the weight up. This is great for anyone who has hit a plateau with breaking into higher weights.
- Use bands to add resistance to your lift. This is typically referred to as speed barbell training. Simple add bands to the barbell to add resistance. Typically, athletes keep weight around 60% of their one (1) rep max and add in a #1 or #2 band. (As shown in the pictures to the left)
Bands help stimulate and optimize your muscles with eccentric and concentric tension that is always changing.
**Bands are sold individually. You will need to purchase two units if doing barbell training**

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Do not leave band(s) outdoors. Do not store in extreme hot or cold temperatures. Do not leave band(s) in highly humid areas. These factors will lead to the deterioration of the latex.
*Inspect your bands carefully before use for any tears, wear, or damage. Do not use a band that shows signs of damage. * Bands are not toys and should not be treated as such. *Bands should be kept out of the reach of children. *Never place bands about neck. *Do not stretch band more than 2.5X its original length. *Consult with your physician before beginning any exercise regimen. *Do not wrap bands around knurling, sharp or rough objects/surface. Knurling will contribute to the deterioration of band. If the knurling on your barbell or pull-up bar tears up your hands, it will do the same to your band!

I came across this product on Amazon after I did a search for Sorinex, as those were the bands recommended by Bret Contreras—the "Glute Guy" and foremost expert on glute training. I had never heard of Serious Steel Fitness, but the reviews were great and the product seemed like it was quality made, which is extremely important because I could only begin to think of the types of injuries caused by an inferior resistance band. Upon removing it from the plastic packaging, I felt I had made the right decision in my purchase. The band is thick and solid and the seam appears glued together very well.
I am a big fan and follower of Bret Contreras. He provides solid, scientifically tested exercises for building your glutes. One of his signature moves is the Hip Thrust, either with bodyweight, barbells or bands. As I progressed passed bodyweight hip thrusts I started to use barbells, but I was having a difficult time engaging my glutes using this method. So I decided to experiment with bands, and I was really surprised at much harder my glutes were working doing it this way. At the same time, I also started having issues with deadlifts. I realized that I was not using the correct form and actually ended up getting some bulging discs. I did some research online and saw that resistance bands were a good alternative for barbell deadlifts (of course I'm limited in how much load I can get using a band, but for me at my level of fitness right now, this is a good solution.)
I don't have a gym membership and have only a few pieces of equipment in my home office. For my hip thrusts and deadlifts I take the Green #4 Serious Steel Fitness band and anchor either end onto a weighted barbell (photo attached). Also in the photo is how I use the band for hip thrusts—that is, I put my shoulders on the bench, get my body between the band and the barbell, place my feet flat on the floor and keep my legs perpendicular to the ground. **I need to say that this may not be the safest method, as my butt is directly over the bar (there shouldn't be anything under your butt/back)**, but I am still able to bring my butt down low enough in order to get a good thrust at top, and have not hurt my back or butt yet. For more info on how to do a proper hip thrust I would Google 'Bret Contreras band hip thrust'. For deadlifts, I simply take the proper stance and grab onto the band pulling upward for resistance while squeezing my glutes.
What's great about bands is that you can combine them for varying amounts of weighted resistance. I have lighter bands from another manufacturer, but this Green #4 SSF band offers a great level of resistance, and combined with my lighter bands allows me to go much heavier. Once I feel that I've progressed even further, I will definitely come back and purchase their black #5 band.
There's also some negatives, but it pertains mostly to this entire class of product. Being made of latex rubber, these bands do not feel good when they rub over your skin especially if there's hair, so you have to find ways to do the exercises without the bands rubbing against yourself. They also have a smell to them. You will smell like latex after you touch them and so will the room. I suspect the smell will not go away, but they are a little less bad now then on day 1. They also came lightly dusted in some kind of white powder. I didn't want it all over me, so I washed/wiped it off.
Also, I was a little worried that I would get a reaction to the latex, which I do sometimes, but I haven't so far and these are supposed to have most of the protein purified out.
To be clear, I couldn't do a single unassisted chin-up (much less pull-up) to start with. When attempting to do "negatives," I would drop down fast, and I could barely even manage to hold a dead hang for more than a second. So I've been using these resistance bands and doing 5 sets of 8 reps of assisted chin-ups or pull-ups nearly every morning. I started out with band #5, later moved down to #4, and am now using #3.
Today, before I started my usual sets, I was able to do a complete chin-up unassisted from a dead hang -- probably for the first time in my life. So I've definitely made some progress. I have also been doing a very low carb / ketogenic diet during most of this time and am down to about 205lb.
