I Can’t Do Pull-ups. I Am Working On It. However, I Want To Know If There Are Any Alternative Exercises To Pull-ups?

Pull-ups work your latissimus dorsi. In fact, it’s one of the best exercises to train your back!



I can perform 15 pull-ups at a time and also use a weighted belt.


However, I was not strong many years back. Just like many gymgoers, I wasn’t able to do even a single pull-up!


There are two alternatives to pull-ups until you get strong enough to pull your own body weight:


1. Lat pulldown Machine



2. Assisted Pull-up Machine



3. Band Assisted Pull-ups (in case you don’t have the assisted machine in your gym)


I hope this helps. 🙂
