Re: Assistance bands for my little sister

First if she is 45 pounds she must be very young. Careful pushing a young person she might get mad and never workout again. Needs to be voluntary and fun.

She is too short for the band that is why it doesn't help her.

How old are you?

as in knowing how to train yourself and learn to teach others. You struggle with your own pullups and other exercises, you have no place trying to teach others much less a kid.

20.

I've been there, I know what it's like to be unable to do a pullup, I know what it takes to get your first pullup. The problem is, I've never tried assistance bands. I've just relied on the assistance machine, jumping pullups and negatives.

So, now what? We wait until she gets taller? She's 7.

Re: Assistance bands for my little sister

I would like to know why pullups are so important to you.

There is always the option of holding her feet so she can press off your hands.

"Notice that my favorite movements for improving speed do not only include lower body movements, instead you see pull ups / chin ups as well. Studies have shown that high school athletes who can perform more pull ups often times have a faster 40 yard dash time than the athlete who can perform less pull ups.

The lats are involved in the arm swing during sprints and the body works as one, so strengthening the lats (the largest muscle in the body) will be of great benefit to improving speed. Once an athlete can perform 10 perfect bodyweight pull ups and chin ups then its time to add 10 % of his / her bodyweight and continue in this manner until he / she can perform 8 10 perfect reps with added weight. Weighted pull ups / chin ups are a phenomenal upper body movement which will improve speed as well!"

I feel lonely. I am the only one in my house that can do a pullup... I don't want to be alone.

I might try the assistance bands with my stepfather, actually. I am pressured to get rid of them.

I can post articles too. Read up. Nothing about pullups, plenty about power, flexibility, training the correct metabolic pathways and of course actually running.

So, I get my squat up, my bench up, do technique work... and then what?

Pullups are still a weakness. They'll still be limiting my speed potential. They will also enhance my physique better than sprinting technique.

So, unless you want to me to turn into a 200 pound bodybuilder that can military press 2 plates, I'd rather take care of the pullups NOW and then worry about all the other stuff.

Also: I tried assistance bands with my little brother(who is much taller and bigger than my little sister). It didn't work. So I KNOW that the assistance is not enough, even if my little sister is not tall enough to use the bands.

Re: Assistance bands for my little sister

Your lack of running is what is killing your speed potential. Not a semi related muscle group.
