Re: Sub body row or band pull-up?

Though I can't do that many. I was able to increase my pull ups from doing negative ones. I jumped up with my head over bar and slowly went down. I do this a couple of times, a few days a week. I don't want the band to be my new friend.

Re: Sub body row or band pull-up?

Great post. I use bands for WODs, but realized I wasn't really getting better. I've tried volume training, but never followed through. I could probably do 4 or 5 dead-hand pull ups. I started volume training again on Monday. 20 mins/rounds doing pull ups on the minute. Never a difference of more than one from the first minute to the last. I do 2 each minute for the first 7 minutes, then 1 per until the end. I read about it somewhere on the CF site. Has anyone tried this method for increasing their pull ups?

Re: Sub body row or band pull-up?

For any gymnastic movement, the poor man's programming is:

Eccentric first, Static second, Concentric last.

You can do that with just about any movement.

Unfortunately, I manage to drop straight down when attempting one-armed pull-ups. As such, I'm doing assisted one-armed pull-ups to build the strength up for controlled negatives first.

Re: Sub body row or band pull-up?

Or you can manage the negative with your off-hand....I use the vertical bar attached to the bar I am pulling up on. I wrapped pieces of tap around the vertical bar at different levels and numbered them, 1 at teh top down to 10 at the bottom...the further down the bar (higher the numbered piece of tape my assist hand is on), the less assistance that hand can give and the more my working arm is taking the load.

Eventually I will be able to do negatives without the assist hand.

That's a tough skill though...just getting to a nice negative is a decent accomplishment for most folks. Especially us heavier folks.

Re: Sub body row or band pull-up?

Heh, I'm not exactly what you'd call "heavy", tipping the scale between 150 and 160lbs depending on what I've eaten lately. But yes, I'm working on it, as well as a front lever.

Front lever is my 2011 goal...I'd be happy with a straddle front lever...

Yeah 150-160 is a decent weight for this stuff, still not that light...but yeah, I fluctuate between 205-215#, so it makes my love of all things gymnastic kind of tough.

Apologize for the thread jack.
