    P90X - Alternative to Pull Up Bar

    I just started P90X but the door frames are not far enough from the ceiling to fit the P90 type pull up bar. I thought about installing one inside the doorframe but that will stop me from doing the wide grip pulls.

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Why do you say that? Have you found that P90X is not a good workout option?

    read the supplied materials and watch the introductory video as instructed, it tells you to use the (lol) "strength bands" in place of the pull up bar.

    For the unaware. My post about doing P90x in a gym was a joke, as we had a member that posted about doing so. I guess not everyone saw that thread, although it was near "epic" status.



    But I agree OP would be better off joining a gym (and ditching the P90x, as suggested by bmontgomery87).

    install a bar or block of wood across the doorway (flush to the backside relative to P90 mounting requirements) and use that as the point of attachment that you hook the p90x j-hook onto

    if you cut the wood (2x4 might do) carefully and use sturdy mounting brackets it could be removeable (leaving brackets in place)
    something like this:

    12-gauge not sheetmetal
    maybe closed on three sides
    maybe 2x6's

    Thank you Kroh! I'm going to give this a shot!

    My goals are to get myself back in shape.. build muscle and lose fat. I belong to a gym but thought this would be a good routine to follow for 3 months and then transition to gym workouts.

    If you already belong to a gym why not just use it? No need to over think this....

    ^^^^ This

    P90X is better than nothing . . . but if you have a gym membership, get on a decent beginner's program and jump right in. Eat right, be consistent, lift heavy things, and you should be well on your way! Newbie gains can be highly motivating and surprising.

    What . . . you've never heard of a 30-year bulking phase before??

    Thanks for all the feedback guys! Right now, working out at home is a better option (some things at home require me to be home more often than not) but I'm planning on going back to the gym in April.

    Ideas above about creating your own are good but for 'portability' I used to use these (still have them actually for when I travel)

    Cheap, work fine and you get some added resistance by dragging your body up the door :-) I've used them on all kinds of cheap hotel doors and never caused any damage.

    Hehe, I know you're mostly joking but this IS an option if you rip the DVD's then convert them into MPEG4. Dump them on an IPOD and voila, do P90x in a gym without looking like (too much) of a dbag

    I have substituted Jumping Jacks for Military Press. I also added yoga and listening to Indian Zither music before I eat a big bowl of Kashi.

    oh, I am aware, that thread started the whole dot feather thor thing. That still doesn't negate the fact if you can't do it at home then join a gym unless you are just looking for excuses.

    As FLEX said what is the goal.

    I Started P90X almost a year ago and about to finish the 4th time around. When I started I was out of shape and overweight. P90X is great in the area of weight loss, low to medium strength and muscle gain and if you add the diet from beachbody which I never really followed you can see some great changes. You however WILL NOT become a power lifter from this program. I will say this and I know that some will agree and disagree but if this is how you get started to change the way you live it has some great motivation. I would also suggest going to a Doctor to make sure of any health problems. The Cardio (plyometrics) is for real. Stick to it and good luck on your journey, there are plenty of help on here.

    yes



    this is how i do pull-ups with low ceiling
    hand is over microphone where i'm explaining why the electrical cable staples are there to keep the bolts from getting sucked back through the holes

    While not really a substitute to a pullup, if you own some heavy dumbells you could do bent over rows.
