use as much band tension as you must to achieve full dead hangs and start from there, re the clapping pushups normal pushups will do fine. The template works I used it once myself although that was six years ago...

Okay, will do, I wanna buy that band doohickie thing; right now just have Jump Stretch bands which won't work. Can do this in place of the eccentric pullups or in addition...

As for pushups, I'm doing quite a bit of pushups in my program already...

p.s. need to modify that t-nation program...

it has eccentric chinups, bent over rows and pulldowns
then flexed arm hang, assisted pullups, db row
optional negatives, jumping pullups and flexed arm hangs

already doing some of these and some have proven ineffective...

hopefully i am not missing something really glaringly obvious

The bar at my gym is kind of high up to use bands on, unless I also get a box, but then to kick out the box and use the band at the same time might be tricky.

We only have two size boxes and neither will work. It's okay, though, I can wait the 5 days for my thing to get in the mail since I've been trying to get a pullup for 3 years now.

You can also try putting the box slightly to the front, back, or either side of the pull-up bar. Once you grab the bar, you just swing slightly into position. Upon completing the set, swing back to the box or fall to the ground. I dunno if that helps.

I jut think it'd be hard to deal with both the box and the band, don't you think? I suppose I could try it.
