I can do 87 pullups. No joke. All I need is a bar and a strategically placed 100-pound Draper's Strength Pullup Band. And a camera that hides my body from the waist down from all witnesses.
Seriously, though, if you're struggling with keu body weight-based strength exercises, or in fact, if you want to struggle more with them, these heavy duty elastic bands will serve as either the friend or foe you need to get the results you seek.
For pullups, drape your choice of 2- to 200-pound band around your bar and pull it through itself to secure. Place one or both feet in the other end of the loop, and enjoy the total teamwork of muscle and high-quality latex. Resistance bands can also assist with stretching and straightforward strength training moves, such as bicep curls and chest flies.
All Draper's Strength Bands are 41" long and, according to the company, made to last for years. Yellow is the lightest, offering 2 to 15 pounds of resistance and orange the heaviest, going 70 pounds and up.
