I've been using this for quite some time and it's held up reasonably well, with minimal marking on my wall/frame. Nothing I cant paint over. I'm only 145 ish though.
This suggestion kinda depends on the layout of the bathroom itself, and there's probably a coordination/fitness aspect too, so CAVEATS and all... I'm able to get everything done with a cheap WalMart version of this. Now that doesn't let you close the door, but a wheelchair parked in the hall is a pretty obvious tell... anyway the main benefit here is, like, you can get one of these for $15 and there's no installation, so if you're moving soon and don't want to invest in a long-term fix, that might be a way to go.
I recently fractured my foot and can't drive to my gym to perform what meager lifts I can still perform, so I need to do what I can at home. The one thing I can not figure out is how to set up a bar for chin ups/pull ups etc. I live in a basement style apartment and can not easily leave, so having something down here would be ideal.
A generic pull up bar like this isn't compatible with any of my doors.
Next, I looked for 'chin up stations' like you see in many commercial gyms, like this. Unfortunately my ceiling is roughly 6' 2'' and I am 5' 11''. That unit is 6' 3'' and wouldn't even fit on its own, much less with my chin over the bar.
Next, I saw some advertisements for bars you... nail into the wall? Like this one from rogue. This seems pretty promising but I can barely hammer a nail without breaking something and I'm unsure if my walls could even support it.
At this point, I'm out of ideas. The only other thing I can think of is the kind you jam into a doorframe, like this but I've seen those spontaneously fail (my dad tore his shoulder when it dropped him mid pull up) and am pretty not enthusiastic about them.
I think a station might be my best bet, but I need to find one that has adjustable heights, a solid support base, and that will ship. Does anyone have any advice there?
Hi! I know this is sort of late but I had a few questions since I am considering getting a pull-up bar. Did you get one that can go on doorways or a more portable one? What price was it?
