Pull Ups engage your muscles
Pull ups engage all of the major muscle groups in your upper body, and as our bands are super strong they're ideal for assisting you through your pull ups and body weight workouts, regardless of your fitness level.
Most people need a little assistance when it comes to completing a pull up routine and with our bands ranging from 5 to 68kg, there's an exercise band for everyone. You can start with a strong band if you're just getting started and within no time drop down to a light resistance as your muscles get stronger with every pull up. You can also use our loop two bands together if you want a wider range of resistance for your pull ups.
Choosing the right resistance band
Selecting the correct resistance band
Red Bands: Stretching, mobility work, warm ups & physical therapy
Black Bands: Light exercise or resistance training such as arm curls and squats
Purple Bands: Heavier exercise or resistance training including deadlifts, squats, and upright rows
Green Bands: Assisted pull ups with body weights from 40-80kg
Blue Bands: Assisted pull ups with body weights from 80kg and over
NOTE: If you're a serious athlete and want to add something extra to your deadlift routines should use the green and blue bands, attaching them to the lifting platform, and over the barbell. This will maximise the use of every muscle group and force them to grow and build strength.
Our resistance bands are made from premium latex which is then added on top of each other using a layering technique, rather than built using one thick chunk of latex that's constructed using latex and filler (which is why other bands are so cheap).
By using the layered technique we can guarantee that our pull up bands will give the best and most consistent resistance compared to any other loop band on the market.
Just like our weighted vests, we guarantee that you'll be using these in years to come and they'll still feel as good as new.
Power bands for squatting & deadlifting
If you're serious about taking your squat or deadlift to the next level then you need to incorporate our heavy duty power bands into your weightlifting, body weight exercises or gym routine.
Resistance bands are a great tool for increasing the weight at the toughest part of the lift whilst reducing the resistance at the opposite end of the lift, meaning each muscle used is working hard and growing as you move through each repetition.
Remember though, when you've finished a heavy weightlifting lifting session it's often a good idea to encourage your muscles to recover by compressing them with voodoo muscle floss, which will increase blood flow and improve mobility, allowing you to hit the gym just as hard as the last time.
Exile Gear exercise pull up bands are designed to give perfect, progressive resistance as you move through the lift.
