Creative Door Gym

Post by firedepot » Fri Dec 07, 2007 6:32 am

Due to time constraints I am thinking of ordering the Creative door gym very soon. This and a jump rope should suffice for awhile, right? Can you do Kipping pullups on the door gym?

Also, I am still planning the outdoor pullup bar. I'm thinking of going with 6x6's instead of 4x4's. I'm thinking that the smaller pieces will flex too much under kipping. Do you think that I should attach the pipe to the uprights with screws or should I bore a hole and come up with something else?

I have a door gym. I am tall with a long reach. I semi-kip with bent legs. I can't swing back too far or the leverage won't hold the bar in place.

So - it depends on your size and how far you want to swing. When I have done pullups on a real pullup bar, I have found them to be way more comfortable. Another problem for me is that I am wider than the door when my arms are rotated out for a palms-down grip.

It is a nice piece of equipment for what it is tho'. Nice for any ring stuff too. You can also take it with you.
