The ELEVATE Pull-Up, designed on an adjustable incline, helps users perform the exercise.
With seven incline levels to select from, the ELEVATE Pull-Up rivals most lat machines. It allows users to lift anywhere from 35 percent to 65 percent of their own bodyweight. Lifting only a portion of one’s own bodyweight helps a user perform an exercise they could not have previously performed. The adjustability of the unit strengthens the muscles gradually, allowing the user to progress and eventually perform the exercise without assistance.
The incline design of the ELEVATE Pull-Up also allows for plyometric or one-arm pull-ups and engages all the muscles of the upper body to efficiently and effectively enhance muscle definition and improve overall strength.
