I just purchased a "chin up" bar today. It's mounted on the door and I do a few reps everytime I walk past it.
Obviously it allows for pull ups and chin ups and it also has the handles that stick out towards you (ie, pull ups facing each other sideways...i dont know if there is a technical term for this but I will just refer to them as "side pullups" for the current purposes)
I wanted to work on the bar everyday. One day I would do sets of pull ups. Another day sets of chin ups. Another day side pull ups. These exercises would not however be to the maximum intensity. Everytime I walk past I will do some etc etc. It will be in addition to my regular workout routine.
My goals at the moment are not to bulk. I want to get leaner and tone up my muscles, in addition to increasing strength and endurance.
So, having said all this, are there negative effects of using the bar everyday, specifically, doing chin ups, pull ups and side pull ups everday (but only one specific on any one day).
thanks for any responses
