Exercise Demo: Negative Pullup Posted January 31st, 2013 by Nicole . Alternative Exercises Pullup, Wide Grip Pulldown, Smith Machine Pullup 2 Comments jESSICA ESTENES says: January 4, 2018 at 2:57 pm Is it ok to use a band or assiged machine when doing pull ups also I recently discovered that if I put my pointer finger up (like put my hands like guns, on the bar) I feel like I am pulling more with my lats. Whats the secret to getting them with no assistance? I know that wide grip is esp. difficult for me. Log in to reply moniho2 says: January 11, 2018 at 12:52 pm Hi Jessica, Just to help you out. Underneath the video has the alternative exercises to do if you can’t do it unassisted. I have found that if I reread all the material Nicole has provided us, then I find the answer to my questions there. 🙂 Have a good training day!
