Hi,
I am looking for rubber bands to help with pull-ups. Saturday the 1st's picture showed the rubber bands that I'm looking for. Can anyone tell me where to find these?

Any suggestions as to length and determining how much resistance to get? I weigh about 215 and can barely to 1 true, non-kipping pull up (my doorway chinning bar is too low to figure out how to kip....).

Just as an aside, you can try getting 2 different bands instead of one heavy enough to work with now. That way you can start out with both feet hooked, and then go to the heavier one by itself, and then the lighter one, then none.

Tim- All the bands are the same length. I have the starter package from Iron Wood. I have doubled up the blues and a 185-195 guy that could do 1 pullup did about 5-7 pullups.

Re: Pull-Up Rubber Bands

Here is a cheaper alternative.

There are many sizes.

I've heard about them, and just ordered some.

Good luck!

Those are good, been using them for years and they still look like new. No need to pay more for fancy colored ones.

Re: Pull-Up Rubber Bands

Which particular sizes of the pallet bands work best? That is, which length work for pull-up help? Also, which thickness? I'm 170lbs, coming back from multiple injuries so need a little help with pullups and ring dips. What item # specifically?

Thanks.
