Pull Up Assistance Pack
The Pull Up assistance pack is the ideal pack if you are learning to do strict pull ups. There are many reasons why you should develop strict pull ups before going on to kipping pull ups. The strict or dead hang pull up strengthens the shoulder girdle and musculature of the back and biceps. The kipping pull-up requires a great deal of technique and flexibility to perform correctly. Performed incorrectly it can lead to wear and damage of the labrum in the glenohumeral joint. It is for this reason that band assisted pull ups are great. They can take some of your body weight allowing you to effectively train lifting only a percentage of your body weight. As the band is at maximum tension when your arms are fully extended the pull up is easier at the bottom allowing you to overcome the trickier part of the pull up. You can start with a Green "Average" Resistance Band and drop down to the Purple "Light" Band once you feel more confident or your coach feels you should progress.
Resistance bands are not just for powerlifting and weightlifting. They are great for using to help you work your pull ups by taking some of your body weight. Each band is 41″ long when laid flat.
The Pull Up Assistance Pack contains:
- 1 x Purple "Light" Resistance Band 30kg Resistance (28mm x 4.5mm)
- 1 x Green "Average" Resistance Band 45kg Resistance (44mm x 4.5mm)
When using a band for a pull-up the band will be stretched to approx 42" when at the bottom of the pull-up and still be stretched to around 24" at top of pull-up (Figures for athlete who's approx 5ft 7" - taller athletes will stretch band further). Given that the table below gives an approximation of how much weight the band will take from your body when used to assist with pull-up training:
|Band Colour||Slack taken (2" Stretch)||Top of Pull-Up (24")||Bottom of Pull-Up (42")|
EXCHANGES, RETURNS & REFUNDS
We want you to be completely satisfied with your order. It is important to us that you are delighted with your purchase but if for any reason you are not, and feel the need to send the item back, we offer a 365 DAY returns policy, starting from the date of order. All we ask is that you return your goods, no questions asked, in their original state. If you are not happy or you need to change something, the easiest thing to do is to email us so that we both have a record of it. We are happy to exchange any item for you at no extra charge for UK customers (you will need to cover postage of item sent back to us). Overseas customers will need to pay for postage of the replacement item. If an item is damaged or the wrong item was sent we will usually cover return postage, but please notify us prior to sending.
Custom Belts are made to order to your specification and as such are not eligible for a refund should you no longer want it. We try our best to get a belt to you by a given time, but we make no guarantee a belt will be delivered on time. Once your design has been agreed you are no longer able to cancel your order or return it for a refund. If there is an issue in terms of quality we will fix it; if we have made your belt to the wrong specification we will either replace it or alter it; depending on which is most suitable.
For a refund you will need to return your order to us within 365 days of making your order (yes, that's 1 whole year). We aim to process your refund the same week it arrives back with us. We are a small company so we value your repeat business, so we don't want to mess you around - if you've not heard anything from us a few days after returning, just drop us an email or call and we'll check the status for you. Items being returned for a refund will need to be returned in new condition and with the original packaging.

DO NOT RETURN ITEMS PACKAGED LIKE THIS:
Your item is going through the postal network, not into space. Please be mindful of the fact that a human - not a space robot - will have to open the package and the item you're returning will be going back on sale for someone else to buy. We would very grateful if you could include the original packaging if possible.
Items are returned at your own cost. We would recommend UK customers sending 2nd class. Please note returning an order is your responsibility so it is up to you to decide which service you opt for. If the item fails to arrive with us again that is for you to take up with Royal Mail. We are not responsible for lost returns. Please ensure that you return items with a note inside with your name and order number, as we won't be able to ascertain who the order is from without this.
If you qualified for free or reduced rate shipping and you part return your order your order will be recalculated to see if you still qualify for free shipping. If when returning an item your order is below the free / reduced rate shipping threshold, this will be deducted from your refund. Similarly, if you used a discount code that is dependent on a certain order value, your order will be recalculated without the returned item and the difference refunded. If you ordered a bundle of products these cannot be individually returned for a refund, but we can exchange sizes.
If you ordered a weightlifting belt at £29.99 and knee sleeves at £29.99 your order would come to £59.98. If you choose free shipping (Royal Mail 48 Tracked) and you returned the belt for a refund your order would be recalculated as: Knee Sleeves (£29.99) + Shipping (£3.95), as the knee sleeves are below the free shipping threshold. Your new order would be £33.94, so a refund of £59.98 - £33.94 would be issued (£26.04).
