7 Great Strength Building Banded Exercises for CrossFit Athletes

BANDED PULL UPS

You can either use a band to help you get over the bar while doing pull ups – or you can use it to make them harder.

Attach the band to a heavy and stable object right under the bar, then put the other end of the band through your neck.

The force of the band will pull you down, so make sure you come down in a controlled manner. The reason many people struggle with butterfly pull ups is not because they lack the strength to bring their bodies up, but because they aren’t strong enough to control the fall.

Banded pull ups should help solve that problem.
