Bought a pull up/ dip workout station. Couldn't do the pull up. Ok. So bought resistance bands to help me. YouTube video looked easy enough.

Well. They didn't count on me 馃檮 she who trips on own feet and over cracks. She who walks into doors and walls and, yeah. You get the picture. This was NOT pretty.

I suck at pullups. I'm not going to mess around with resistance bands for assisted pull ups tho. I'm just going to use a lat pull down machine since I can set it to a specific weight and target the same muscles
@deadgerbil wish i had gone that route. Bought this damn contraption though and determined to at least do one unassisted

@Bexsy Do you need to get on my shoulders?

I will never use resistance bands ever again. I had one snap on me. 馃槖

@Degbeme That is dangerous and could be painful !!
Degbeme70-79, M
@Teslin Yeah it did hurt.
@Degbeme starting with the heaviest this a thick damn band. It should be ok

How could it not be pretty? It was you, wasm鈥檛 it?
@DragonFruit trust me. This was so awkward would have been painful to watch. The video made look easy. The bands instructions made look easy. Couldn't get my foot. Or knee in the band. I got the step stool. Had to hang on to the side of the contraption. Plus the hanging bar to try and get my foot in. Think i need to lower the bar? Idk. I'll try again tomorrow

It takes time to be able to do dips and pull-ups. Be patient, it will happen.

Cowinky dink !
I just bought resistance bands on this unthought out impulse.
Ive looked up exercises.

Now im afraid of Murphy's law .......
@OogieBoogie oogie, us and resistance bands. The exercise world should be very afraid. For their lives!

I can do 50 of those when I have a馃惇 hump under the bar to motivate me. Maybe you would like to do pulldowns first?
@pancakeslam thought with all these planks and plank twist and pushups i could do this

But. I just got to get my coordination down. 馃ぃ yeah. Coordination. Me
