  1. The purpose of the exercise is not to use it when doing pull-ups with heavy weights as part of your routine. Its main goal is to show you how to utilize more lats by disengaging your forearm and, more importantly, using less biceps/more triceps. If you pull (push) down at the elbow you'll utilize more lats: the whole point of this video. Once you know the correct movement/method, then you start adding weights without this strap.
    Jeff, with said, I'd like to show you a more effective demonstration. If you have someone push up at the elbow while you're pulling down, you'll totally disengage using your biceps and feel your lats working. It's basically the same thing as this video (without all the people asking you about the stupid stress problem with the strap). Again, once you understand this concept, then you'll see a doh epiphany, "oh crap, I've been doing it wrong all my these years" feeling!?!

    Thanks Jeff. This video is helpful along with most of the others.

    Following some of your simple tips/adjustments, I'm now able to curl 55lbs dumbells 2-3 reps in 2weeks and benchpress 225lbs for 8reps weighing only 150lbs 5-11 age 44 (a tall skinny average person/not a short stocky tailback guy)

  2. Damn I'm so glad I stumbled upon your videos Athlean-X they are fricken amazing and I have learn't so much already. I'm also on the first week of your 90day program and enjoying it very much.

  3. I bought a set of these off amazon…"GO-FIT" ankle strap. This works awesome to isolate. If you going real heavy then it will work on your wrist, but a few pounds like 60 or 80 is ok and comfortable. I use them all the time on back days. I use them to isolate deltoids on shoulder days too. Great tip!

  4. Actually Jeff, how about to isolate the lats even more by somehow performing the exercise with a fully flexed arm so that the biceps are fully shortened and contribute the least amount to the pull?

  5. Ah shucks….now everyone is going to be doing this Jeff! ….Just kidding. I've been doing this for years and it makes a huge difference. Most guys won't do it because you can't put the same amount of weight on the stack…but that's their loss….this works great and I use the same idea on most of my pulling exercises.

  6. I see this all the time at gym, guys with huge arms but a small back.  I do it in a similar way but without the straps. I use thumb less grips, and use a very light grip, doing it this way you are only using you back muscles.

  7. And how on earth do you use this for both arms? Unless you use really light weights that mean you can pull and attach the second wrist I can't see how. Then even worse how you get out of it!?

  8. I finished up 90 day Athlean X program about 3 weeks ago. OUTSTANDING program. Best fitness investment I've ever made. Lost 40+lbs & about 16% body fat. I'm on my 3rd week of Athlean Xero. Another AWESOME program. I'm getting AX2 when I finish Xero.

  9. Doesn't this put a lot of stress of the wrist or carpal bones/joints when we go heavy and the wrist and forearm aren't contracted to support the wrist?

  10. Screw the ankle strap. Just rotate your upper arm so that your elbows aren't flaring out to the sides while you are doing pull ups. You will pull your body up higher also.
