The Slastix pulldown feet offset exercise is a great beginner exercise to strengthen the pulling movement as a regression to the pull up.

  • Attach Slastix band as high overhead as possible. 
  • Stand facing anchor point with a handle in each hand. 
  • Engage the core by tightening the abdominals and glutes. 
  • Pull handles downward in a diagonal motion toward the body by flexing elbows, depressing and retracting the shoulder blades.
  • Do not allow the low back to arch, head to move forward or shoulders to elevate.
  • Hold for 1-2 seconds. 
  • Slowly return to starting position by extending the elbows.
