Hello,

I was just looking for some ideas on pull ups bars, hooks, mounts, etc. I have a doorway pull up bar, the only problem is that because the door has to be open all the time, it would just be silly to have that in a college dorm. My gym at school isnt that well equipped with pull up bars so I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about maybe wall mounts, alternate pull up bars, hooks, etc that would be good for a college dorm (not taking up a lot of space, easy to assemble/remove). any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

GTFO..




If I come over as an a**hole I'm not. It's just that there are already over one million threads on pull bar doorway thingamajigs.

An irongym type doorway bar? Can't you just take it down and close the door when you're not using it? I saw others doing plenty of weird **** in the dorms, and this isn't anywhere near that level. A lot of people would leave their doors open anyway in the dorms, especially mine (No A/C).

Either don't worry about it or find somewhere else to do them. And as D said...SEARCH.

If your school gym has a power-rack use the bar on it. If they have Smith-Machines lookout the bar in the highest position and use it. Might have to bend your knees. If neither of those are do able. Use the doorway pull-up bar and just take it down when done.

How about reading the forum rules first before you post any threads?! This has been covered thousands of times.
