    Assisted pullups using cables

    Odd idea, but if you don't have access to an assisted pullup machine but you do have a lat cable setup available.. Could you strap the carabiner(using high cable, not low) to your weight belt, do the pullup and use it that way for assistance instead? Would it change the end result you get from it, and make it a more effective way of doing assisted pullups? Also, could you attach the low cable to the belt for cable resisted pullups?

    If you can't yet do pull-ups, you could probably do anything consistently and get good results.
    Some people use bands for assistance.
    Or just do bent arm hang for time often.

    Edit to say I wouldn't trust the cable pulling the belt upward to provide a good connection, but you could try it. Cable pulling down against the hips for resistance seems to work better in my mind, but then why not just attach free weight?

    You could try and get back to us.
    You could try to rig up something in a power rack with pulleys and cables.
    Using bands don't give the correct strength curve,they give you more at the bottom where your stronger and less at the top where your weaker but are better than nothing.
    Good luck to you.
