The Best Home Back Exercise Ever! (MADE BETTER)


What’s up guys? Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Now, you probably can figure out what this
is right off the bat. All you have to do is look up. The Pullup is no doubt the Best Home Back
Exercise, one of the Best Back Exercises period. But it’s certainly something you can do at
home if all you do is go out and invest in a Pullup Bar. But there’s one problem with it, most guys
will train the exercise only within the rep range that they are able to do. So maybe you’re only able to do 2 or 3. That’s
a problem if you want to try to get stronger. Or worse, maybe you’re a guy that can crank
out 15 or 20 or more and all you do is ever train to failure in those ranges. You guys know that I believe training to failure
is important, but sticking in the same rep range all the time, as we’ve covered many
times is not going to cut it. So you have to have a way to load the exercise
in a way that you can make it more difficult. Now remember, loading doesn’t always come
from additional weight. You can load with more resistance and what
we’re going to do is you line this up, I’m showing you right here. Here I’ve attached 2 Bands to the Balusters
of a stairway. Now it just so happens that I have these 2
Bands in close proximity here to my Pullup Bar. You can do this by pulling a piece of furniture
over closer to your Pullup Bar. By taking a couple of Dumbbells, if you happen
to have some heavier Dumbbells at your house in your Home Workout setup. Put them there. Guys, I can’t figure out every solution for
you, how you’re going to do this. Just figure out a place to anchor these Bands. Like I said, just a simple piece of furniture. But you’re going to take them and what’s good
is you put them back low and behind you. With them low and behind you, put one Band
over one shoulder, you put another Band over the other shoulder. So now I’ve got resistance here back and down. Now what’s great about that is when we go
to do our Pullup, we have to A. pull ourselves closer to the bar. So we’re getting our mid back to work a little
bit more than we traditionally would. And then of course we have that down anchor
point that’s going to pull us back and down, we’ve got to be able to overpower and come
up. So we get ourselves in position. We pull up,
we’re pulling close to the bar and up. Close and up. Again, normally I can crank out over 20, 25
Pullups in a shot. Not if I do it like that. But that’s what’s key here. We’re trying to
make sure we overload in a lower rep range to get the benefits. You don’t have to compromise when you’re training
at home. The last thing that we can do is take one
of the Bands, like I said, for the guys that’s on the lower end of this, that can’t do enough Pullups, just anchor
one over the bar. You then step into the Band and then you come
up and now you’re doing assisted Pullups. So if Pullups are always difficult for you,
now they become much easier because you’ve overweighted your body. So guys, when you’re training at home, you
might have a few challenges that the guy at the gym doesn’t have. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t get a great
Workout in. Matter of fact, with our ATHLEAN XERO Program,
you don’t need this, you don’t even need this. You need absolutely nothing and I can still
get you the greatest Workout that you can do in the comfort of your own home. And we will help you to build muscle by doing
them. Guys, no excuses. Use these two methods here and adjust accordingly. And if you’re looking for that complete program
that you can do, No Bars, No Bands, No Bench, No Bull, ATHLEAN XERO is at ATHLEANX.COM. Meantime guys if you found this video helpful,
