Elite Youth Athlete performing some band assisted chin-ups.
Bands can be a great tool to provide assistance for younger athletes that might not yet have the strength to properly perform a full chin-up with their body weight.
It is important to have progressions and regressions to all exercises and training movements for your athletes.
In this case, the addition of bands is a great way to regress the movement. With our more advanced athletes we progress this movement by adding additional external weight so they are using more than their body weight for the chin up.
