the bands are not to replace if you arent strong enough, that's what the chair is for. the bands are if you dont have place to put up the pullup bar.

I didnt think I could, but I gave it a go (with the chair) and I did 4 wide pull ups and I consider myself an out of shape person. (and so does everyone else..)
Maybe it conflicts with what he says in the video (I'm not a p90x expert), but you CAN replicate the motion of a pullup with overhead pulling movements using bands - that's all I'm saying. In the same way that you can do lat pulldowns at the gym to work your back, biceps, etc. without being able to lift your entire weight.
