pull ups with out a bar!

Postby Admin » Sun Jun 17, 2007 4:24 pm

Here is a pulling exercise that can be done with just about any door (assuming that the door that you choose is not too flimsy).
    Open a door halfway and place a towel over the top.
    Place your hands on the towel and let yourself hang off of the door.
    Pull yourself up against the door until your chin is over the top of the door.
    Lower yourself slowly back to the starting position.

Very cool tip !

That's a neat idea when you're stuck in a hotel :wink:

Public service:
This is not for most people, since the hinges of the door in a standard home would not handle this strain over a period of time without damaging the door (and imagine if it was not even YOUR door!)

Yes what Andy said, hotel rooms generally have beefy doors so my work there, but proceed with caution ;)

Sounds like it could end up in much hilarity.
