Do you mean the assistance machine? I would stear clear mate and get some dumbells,and put them between your legs,or get a dipping belt and put a 5/10KG plate on there,do as many pullups as possible and it will help
PULL UPS! for me they are the big *text deleted* thorn in my side, Press ups, sit ups, mile and half...no probs at the momet but my Pull ups :evil: i can only get out 5 :evil: i then use the assit part on the machine to help but are there any other exercises that can help with pull ups? I heared lat pull downs are pretty good for helping with pull ups.
Yeh mate the lat pull down machine will help to a degree,so will bent over rows . Id suggest also trying pullups lying down. Get two chairs,and a broom,and put the handle across the chair tops,then lay down,grab the bar with a wide grip and pull to your chest.
And also a light weight between your knees whilst doing pullups.
When practising back-handed pull-ups, the beam at Lympstone is a "D" (on it's back) profile, so the four fingers on each hand support your entire body weight. If you practise on a bar, remember to keep your thumbs out as they are not part of the grip.
You should not cross your legs or swing to gain momentum and you should try to keep them straight & together throughout & clear of the deck. Once your chin is over the beam, try to hold for a count of 5, lower yourself in a controlled manner & repeat.
(I can't do one ops: But then I don't want to be a Commando :*text deleted*: )
I would take the time to explain some of the exercises, but I usually use that website above to help with exercises.
Check out both of those links, they will both help with your pull ups.
If you want your muscles to grow quicker, blast out about 3 sets of 20 reps doing squats (with weight). When you do squats, something in your body releases a chemical that helps your muscles grow. Trust me, squats helps as well. You won't notice it at first. Trust me, I'm a... doctor?
