Info on pull ups

Ok, so i have been doing very well with my pull ups. I have hit 7 in a row. I am 220 pounds and 5'10" so its alot to lift at once.

Last night, it was my pull up day off, i tweaked my lowerback somehow. I still want to do my pull ups but i want to find an assisted pull up that is 75 to 85% as effective as a regular pull up

Any info?

Thanks

you can set a chair behind yourself, and bend your knees and put your toes on it. When you need the extra lift, push with your legs.

Well we use the overnight ones, and get one size larger so it's easier for my daughter to pull them up by herself... Oh, not that kind of pull ups

You could try the under-table pull up:

Resistance band. Tie it on both sides of the pullup bar, near where your hands go, and then stand on it. Very effective, flexible, and affordable for assisted pullups.

I've been in this same boat. At work we have a double pull down machine. It has a bar that goes across the two stacks of weights. I would put it on 170 to 190, sit on my knees and pull down. At that weight, I have to start to bring my lower legs up too, so you can get very close to body weight. Some guys sit on their butt for lighter weight.

However you do it, I think it is helpful to run more reps some times. I start to lose good form quickly on full pullups and the lighter/higher reps seem to help that.

Here is a good crash course:

There are a bunch of places to buy them online, and you can find them at a lot of local fitness places. You can always make your own if you are confident in the materials, as well.
