Chin-Up Assist

Maximize every minute you spend on the chin-up bar. This tool gives you the right amount of adjustable support to help you strengthen and train muscles as you work toward unassisted moves.

This piece of equipment can be used with P90X, Asylum, P90X2, or any workout involving pullup exercises.

They didn’t have this piece of equipment when I was struggling to do pullups in my first round of P90X or I would have used it instead of the chair technique.  It allows you to keep your body in a better vertical position, and it keeps the “assistance” at a more controlled level than using your leg on a chair.  Now I don’t need one, so I don’t have one of my own, but I got to play around with it on the set of the P90X2 filming, and it’s a well-designed product.
