    Got used to Pull Up/Chin Up aids?

    January 9, 2014, 4:13 am

    I usually do pull-ups/chin-ups with weight aid (where you step on something to that helps you elevate during the "pulling" movement), but today I decided to try and do regular pull ups; problem is, my body got "stuck". When I tried to pull up, it was like my body was wondering where the aid was and wouldn't go up.

    And it's not like I struggled going up, I literally COULD NOT GO UP. It's like my upper body stops itself from creating the movement.

    Help? Please?

    Well I think the problem is he just isn't strong enough to do it on his own yet.

    Kyde, you should try doing "Jumping Negatives" I talk about them in this video, check it out. I know it will help you out a lot!

    In this video I use my weighted vest... just do the jumping negatives with bodyweight. #HTH

    Hi Guys,

    Been a while and the results are looking promising, however i always seem to have issues when it comes to pull ups or chin ups, i can never get the form right therefore struggling to do even 1 properly. I make sure i breathe properly etc but i dont feel that my overall strength is up to that standard. are there any alternative methods to the pull ups or chin ups which would have the same effect, so far ive been doing lap pull downs as a substitute. what would you guys recommend?
