    Hey guys, sorry I'm kinda late with this one. Put another quick video together, it addresses:

    - hand placement // difference between chin ups and pull ups
    - how to use elastic bands (is this the same as woody bands?) and pvc pipe to fashion a pull up bar as Paleobird suggested
    - one arm elastic band work, I personally found it to be too easy with two hands and I believe you guys might find it too easy as well.

    Don't forget to mix the grip like Jenny said, one palm can face you and the other can face away from you, you can even just hang this way and get your hands used to the weight.

    and that's it. I have a lot of fun making these, this was just one straight take and the camera work is beyond lame so just bear with, at least it's not as dark as the one before.

    Also, I'm totally being a little silly on this one, and I hope nobody finds it offensive, I don't really think it is but you never know...



    Any questions or clarifications just ask. I just realized that coming up with a "how to start" video is easily found on the web so just use the PBF for that, I might still make one in the future. Hope this helps.

    Cool. I like the jerry-rigged band bar. I will probably have to stick with my ax handle on shelf brackets jobbie that i have for now, which is fine. If i ever have your ease with pullups iniquity, i will be quite the badass chica.

    Yep, she's two months old now! Thanks. I'm still dealing with a busted-open incision, but the doc said I could exercise so... okaaay... heheh.

    Thanks for all the advice! I'm doing other exercises for my core too. (planks etc.)

    Yeah iniQuity, woody bands are elastic bands. I can't watch that right right now but I definitely will watch with Optimus later tonight. Thank you in advance for the vid!

    It just takes dedication and time, go on youtube, type in "girl pull ups" or "women pull ups" and see how many women are out there doing them with ease after months of practice, many are doing them with extra weight strapped on their bodies! so it's very much attainable even if progress is slow.

    Very interesting and helpful and doable, iniQuity.

    I'm not sure how Rivvin is ever going to be able to top that hat.

    I'm really curious how the elastic bands would work so if you guys try it let me know. I'm going to ask my gf to give them a whirl. Oh and I have one more hat if Rivvin steps up.

    Great video! I can see how that would be good practice. But -- I take back what I said before. This is what I mean by bands:

    I'd like to join. I think I did 10 two-leg assisted pullups last time I tried ... probably with too much leg assistance. I haven't tried negatives or even just hanging yet.
