Get a Safe and Adjustable Pull-Up Bar
If you don't already have one, the first thing to do is get yourself a safe and adjustable pull up bar. There are many different options out there but here are some things to look for when buying one:
First and foremost, the easiest way to learn how to do pull ups is by starting with inverted rows. An inverted row is a bodyweight exercise that targets your back muscles by bending over a bar and pulling yourself upward until your chest reaches the bar. It's easier than it looks, and can be done with assistance or resistance bands or even better with an adjustable exercise pull up bar (see below).
After you've mastered inverted rows on an adjustable height exercise bar or other sturdy surface like monkey bars at the park, it's time for assisted pull ups. This means that someone else helps you lift yourself up while you perform the movement—and then they let go so that only your own strength is supporting your weight as you lower yourself back down again. Once this becomes easy enough for you, try using resistance bands around your waist as added support during these same assisted pull ups; this will reduce some of the strain on your arms and hands since there'll be less weight pulling down on them when working out against gravity alone
Lat pulldowns are another great exercise for beginners. They provide an easier way to work on your back muscles and upper body strength. These machines can be found at most gyms, or you can use a partner to help you by holding onto their ankles while they're standing up straight. It's also possible to do lat pulldowns with resistance bands, which will make the exercise less challenging for you as your body gets stronger (but it will still strengthen your back).
Lat pulldowns are compound movements so they'll improve multiple muscle groups at once—including your biceps and shoulders—which makes them perfect if you're trying to get stronger overall rather than just focusing on one muscle group at a time. You should start off with lighter weights until you feel comfortable doing this move before increasing them over time; try doing three sets of ten reps each day or every other day until it feels easy enough for you not only maintain but increase them again!
Resistance bands are rubber tubes that come in a variety of sizes and resistance levels. They're inexpensive, and you can buy them at most sporting goods stores or online. These resistance bands stretch and contract as you pull or push on them; they add weight to your exercise without adding any bulk.
You can use resistance bands in many different types of workouts, but they're especially helpful when learning how to do pull ups because they provide extra resistance when you need it most—when your body moves through space (the top part of a pull up) or against gravity (the bottom part of a pull up).
To get started using resistance bands for this purpose:
When you're first starting out, it's best to use the assisted pull up machine at a height that allows you to perform 10-12 reps with good form. Once you've mastered 10-12 reps on this machine, move over to the lat pulldown machine, which provides more resistance and will help increase your strength for future workouts.
Jumping Pull-Ups (Or Chin-Ups).
This one is a bit of a cheat, but you can still get some benefit from it. The idea is to set yourself up on the pull up bar and then jump up to it, lowering yourself back down again. By jumping instead of using your arms and swinging or kipping, you are reducing the assistance your body provides to you in performing the exercise. This makes this variation more difficult than regular pull ups or chin ups because you're essentially doing them against gravity alone. If you want to make it even harder, try keeping your legs straight while doing these jumping pull ups!
