Im very happy with this pull up bar
on 19 May 2017
Im very happy with this pull up bar. I weigh 80kgs and this thing is solid.
Mine is mounted outside the house and bolted into brick.
The price is really good.
Chin ups/pulls are one of the best excersices to make you very strong.
Ive just started training again after a long break and on my first day after fitting this bar i did 55 strict pull ups.
I learnt a very unique method of training whilst in the Forces.
First you do 1.
If you cant do 1, get a chair to get yourself up their, lower yourself down as slow as possible, its called a 'negative' do 3 each day for a week.
Do 1 pull up, rest 2 mins
Do 2 pull ups, rest 2 mins
Do 3 pull ups, rest to mins
Etc until you finish with 10.
This equals 55. And thats the aim. Try and do this 3 times per week.
You can incorporate other exercises like, pressups, sits ups, hand stand press ups, (if you cant do them do negatives eg do a handstand up a wall and slowly collapse down.
Remember to warm up your shoulders, and treat yourself to a foam roller (vids on YouTube about these)
As you gain strength you can remove your thumb from the grip and use just your fingers, then you can remove finger until you can do chins using 1 finger.
This will all take time, do your pulls with strict form and control, once your technique fails. Stop
