I've managed to convince my girlfriend to start working out with me. This is great and we're both very excited.
But... she can't do a single pull-up.
We work out at home and don't have access to a lat pull-down machine. So, I'm really at a loss as to what exercise(s) to substitute in.
Everything I've been able to find on improving pull-ups makes mention/use of lat pull-downs.
We've been trying assisted pull-ups (assisted by either myself or a chair) but they seem to inevitably devolve into either assisted front raises or assisted squats respectively.
