You can work out without any equipment, like all bros here already said. But if you can, buy one of this pull up bar
It will save you alot of headache and a lot of time to set things up for pull up, row, etc.
I only have length adjustable pull up bar
Can I still able to set up a hang board?
PS I can't drill holes in my apartment wall or adjust any building structure (this includes setting up a plywood support)
PPS, I can't get door frame pull up bar, because the door frames in my apartment is weird and there is no place to hang the pull up bar
I bought this pull-up bar and love it. After reading the comments I didn't even use the brackets.
I have this pull up bar from Amazon.
I hate the cushy grips and actually find them painful. What should I use to replace it? I am afraid tape my actually slip and not grip the bar because of how slippery it is.
Is there an alternative to tape I should consider to wrap the bar?
I use this:
No screw or drills, just tighten it up and go...but there's a maximum capacity I believe.
You will need a pull up bar of some kind at the very least.
If you can't find a park with proper bars in it a playground will usually suffice.
If not this thing is a must.
You'll probably want to look at bars that can be mounted to the actual doorway. I have this one. I've only used the friction setup, and I haven't done any lever work, but it comes with mounting brackets you can install into the doorway with screws to make sure it doesn't move at all.
I've used this for tons of body weight exercises because the only door frame in my place did not have space for the Iron Gym with all its extra stuff going on. It worked really well and has solid reviews. Take this with a grain of salt because I'm only 125 but I didn't use the brackets nor screws. Here
I bought this one:
Sunny Health & Fitness Door Way Chin Up
Unfortunately it only fits up to 35 inches. It doesn't use any screws and so far it's been great for me. I was thinking maybe you could place something between the doorframe and the bar but I don't know if that would work. Hope you find something.
A friend of mine bought it years ago and I then bought it from him. I don't know the manufacturer but it looks very similar to this:
I think those will only work on a wooden door frame because of the screws.
As OriginalSyn said: install it in the door you use most often and then do some pull ups every second or third time you use this door.
I've had one of these screw-in type bars for what has to be going on 15 years. Sure, it's more permanent than the others, but I don't care, it's up and out of the way. I'm not really tall (5'8") so it doesn't get in my way. Another good thing about it is that it's in my bedroom door. Every time I go in or out, I do a pullup or few. The thing about the other ones, you have to drag it out, and you might not feel like doing it as much. I'm about 180 lbs, and it works great for me.
I had the same issue and I ended up getting this. It fits pretty much any door and easily supported my weight (230). It's also quite cheap :)
You can't even get a bar to hang on your door like this one or this one
As /u/Beazer says, if you have rings and place to hang them, you're good. If you need a place to hang them, something like the setup in this video would get you a long way.
Here is the bar.
And here are some wooden rings. Have fun!
You should get a pull up bar! I just max out 1-2 times per day and play soccer 1/week and I look like this.
Sorry for the late update.
I was tired of finding nothing and the tower were pretty pricey so i said fuck it and bought this bar.
I put it in my staircases cause the walls seems a bit better and i used belgium comic books cause they are thin and big between the bar and the wall to prevent the bar from sinking in the wall.
So far so good, even my books stays untouched :)
It would be risky to do any kind of kipping with this type of bar, but for strict form pull/chin-ups it's great. This is the one I bought, but you can definitely find a cheaper one. There is likely a maximum door frame width for it, but I doubt you'll have an issue with that. It does somewhat limit the types of grips you can employ, e.g. I can't really do wide-grip with this bar as my doorway just isn't wide enough to accommodate it. But, it is certainly better than nothing!
i dont know if this is a good one, but htis is the concept im talking about
It's not very likely that your closet molding will hold the weight of a TV plus whatever you're planning on mounting the TV on.
What I would do is get 2 of these exercise bars (or similar) and make a mount for your TV to hang on both of them. Depending on how deep your door frame is you can even tilt it down a few degrees. The concept is based on this sort of mount.
The bars are going to be placed across the door frame, one higher than the other to allow for the TV mount to be hang on them.
If you're experienced enough to build your own mount for the TV, go for it (it can be a bit tricky especially if you want to tilt, rotate and reposition the TV), or you can get something cheap like the link above and use only the part for the TV and store the part that is bolted to the wall for when you can drill holes to the wall.
You can also use this sort of mount to mount it on the exercise bars.
Edit: more clarification.
what about this type of bar?
I use the pull up bar which does hang from the door frame, however you can buy pull up bars which fit in between the door frame, hence aren't hanging from the top part, I personally haven't used these kinds before, but might be worth a try to get you started.
Or you can invest in some sort of power tower, however these may take up space you don't have.
But if you are fairly unfit/don't have much of a back, then resistant bands could work to get you started, these can just be jammed into a closed door.
If you have a doorway, you have a pull-up bar.
