CAN’T DO A PULL-UP? NO PROBLEM!
Try one of my favorite movements of all time: the Floor-Assisted Pull-Up. 🔥👇🏻
I ♥️ this move for a LOT of reasons:
✅ YOU, get to control the ‘throttle’ here. If you need more assistance, use your legs more. If you need less assistance, use your arms and back more.
✅ It teaches the pull-up movement pattern safely.
✅ It explores deep squat mobility.
✅ It is a phenomenal total-body movement when the load is split between upper and lower.

We have used this movement effectively for clients ranging from 100 to 600 pounds. And personally, I love using this movement when bodybuilding for a high rep ‘pump’ finisher for the lats!
💪🏼 Here’s how you do it:
🏋️ SETUP: Place feet shoulder-width apart in a squat stance directly under the bar. Overhand-grip the bar at shoulder width as well.
🔥THE MOVEMENT:
1️⃣ Depress your shoulders to engage your lats and keep the tension in your arms and back.
2️⃣ Slowly lower yourself down to a deep squat position until your elbows are fully extended.
3️⃣ Pull downward from your elbows, pulling your chin over the bar. Use your legs only as necessary to keep the movement smooth and controlled. 👌
4️⃣ Always be sure to explore all variations of pull-up mods (like band-assisted pull-ups and jumping pull-ups) to fine-tune ALL of your pulling muscles!!
