Honestly any of the ones that wrap on the top of the door frame work. Most around $20 and worth it. Here's one for example, [ProSource Multi-Grip Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar, Heavy Duty Doorway Trainer for Home Gym] (

I know you have plenty of advice already, but I bought this one in October last year, use it frequently and have no marks on my door. I had the same concerns you do, so I wrapped a few old shirts around it and it works perfectly!

You can see the shirts and what the frame looks like. I've used it pretty extensively since getting it.

u/1117777111 · 11 pointsr/Fitness

I use this and it's perfect for my needs.

You might want something more elaborate, and they make this kind of style, which has way more options.

u/DrippyWaffler · 8 pointsr/infp

Haha bro you're good. They probably scoff at your eating healthy efforts because you're in fine shape. I've put on a little chub to deal with the cold (I'm a tshirt+shorts all year round kinda guy) and when I mention working it off again people laugh at me and say I need to get bigger. Obviously they mean muscle rather than fat, but that's beside the point.

In terms of your face, I'm a straight dude so I can really give no actual help but you look fine to me. Girls seem to dig the John Snow look.

When you're talking to girls about yourself don't use words like "transitional period." Ask them questions about stuff, and if they ask you questions keep it to the point and as cheerful as possible.

In fact that's the one bit of "brutal honesty" I can give. Put a smile on that face.

I don't know how old you are, but you look about my age. I'll chuck a picture of me up when I can wrangle one to show you what I mean.

Sorry for the poor quality, I have an Ace 2 :(

I dive in 14 degree Celsius water, so I need the insulation. Under a shirt it's barely noticeable. In summer I get into shape more but for the mean while I like it where it is. Get one of these and you're sorted. This will do far more good than eating habits. (They help too though)

Me with similar expression and pose as the one in your photo. Phone isn't in the right place but who cares.

Look how much a smile and body language does!

So, in summary.

  1. Don't talk about healthy eathing and transitioning and whatnot. Ask her some questions, answer her questions to you. I know it's easy for us INFPs to off on tangents, so try and stick to the point.

  2. If you're really worried about your body shape, bulk up rather than slim down. EDIT - just realised I'm an idiot and this is what you meant in the first place. The following advice works regardless. 30 bucks 28 bucks for that bar. Pick a doorway, and do whatever - pull ups, chin ups - to exhaustion (until you can't do any more) every time you go through it.

  3. Smile + shoulders back + good posture. You'll They'll see the difference.
u/SavageConsciousness · 5 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I just purchased this and this last week, and just started using them in my home. I strap the rings to the pullup bar. I think ideally you want them to be mounted higher than that, but I think it works great for me.

u/labnotebook · 5 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

This and This will fit.

u/Chief176 · 5 pointsr/Fitness

(Https:// [I have one similar to this and it's far more reliable.]

NINJA EDIT I suck at this... I give up.

u/leducdeguise · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

There are pullup bars that go on top of doorframes like this one, maybe you can find one and settle the bar issue. As for bands/rings, I bought 2 lashing straps so I could do rows. I just put them around my pull up bar so that the bottom part of the loop is at arm's length when I'm lying on the floor.

u/zackwcote · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

yeah they're great, provided it fits on your door it'll leave scuff marks/ slight indents at worse. I got this one on amazon; it's got much wider grips than they usually do, and it's been awesome so far. much better quality than the usual iron gym one.

u/silasmoon · 3 pointsr/houston

It's this pullup bar

I assembled it, don't have the box, but honestly just never got around to using it since I was rock climbing. I can post pictures of the weights when I get a chance. They're just your standard hexagonal grey weights, no padding. The 10lb ones are padded with sort of a silicone wrap all the way around.

u/Pr0phet · 3 pointsr/insanity

My journey so far is:

  • Power 90
  • Power 90 Master Series
  • P90X
  • Insanity
  • P90X/Insanity Hybrid

    I moved into Asylum from there. My impressions after two weeks is that it's insanely hard. Jumping into the Asylum feels like the difference between month 1 and month 2 of Insanity, given how I came to it. BUT! It's a lot more fun. I never once forget that I am in the middle of an Insanity workout during an Insanity workout. But it never fails that I forget that I'm working out during an Asylum workout because I'm actually having fun.

    Of all the workouts I've done, Asylum Vol. 1 is at once the hardest and most fun. Rock on.

    This is the same as BeachBody's pull-up bar, and far cheaper. You'll want dumbbells, any kind will do; just go for lighter weights. I hurt my wrist recently doing the Strength routine, so be careful. The exercises are very crossfit, and you can hurt yourself if your core isn't in great shape.

    Rock on! Enjoy it. :)
u/TheBertinator3000 · 3 pointsr/fatlogic

This one has worked really well for me. It lets you get a much wider grip than most doorway bars because it doesn't constrain you to the width of the doorway.

u/saraerial · 3 pointsr/Aerials

Even the kind you don't have to screw in can damage your door frame. If you're really worried about it, you could try a pull-up stand like this.

That being said, I have this pull-up bar and it works for me and hasn't damaged my door frames yet.

u/ItsFuckingPaco · 3 pointsr/Eve

Well it depends how creative you want to be.

When I lived with my parents (still do) they have these rafters outside which are perfect for doing pull-ups and pushups on. I have adjustable straps to change the height (which should come with most).

When I used to lifeguard I would just hang them on a nearby tree during our mandatory PT break.

When I was in college I would just no shame hang them at the gym in between the pully tower with rows / tricep extensions at the end.

Right now My garage door has an extra half foot on the outside of it and I hang it on my Pull-Up bar on the metal bar that crossed the U kinda further away from the door sill so you don’t bump into the doorsill. And right now it’s perfect for me, my knees miss the floor by a few inches and I can do L sit pull ups fine. As in with enough slack to let the rings rotate without pressure from the rope.

If you’re looking to do pushups with it you should easily be able to hang it on your pullup bar. I’d suggest the chin up section of it so you don’t bump into the door and so the straps don’t move sideways, with your feet elevated on like a chair and the straps at the same height or below for that upper chest activation.

You should have enough room for dips with bent knees with that setup which is a nice step up from push ups.

u/forgot_again · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I'm using this one for tuck front lever and tuck front lever rows:

It has not made me worry at all. (It does dig into the doorframe a little though)

u/BiologyIsHot · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

So apparently I was wrong. The doorway itself is ~36.5 with about 1.75 inch trim around it. I was measuring trim-to-trim. Still fairly difficult to find, but I think this one will work and it isn't 30% 1-star reviews saying it smells like petrol and broken in 2 days

u/Cobolock · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Ehmm... yeah, I wasn't clear enough. What I mean is normal wide pull-up bar versus narrow doorway pull-up bar. I've called the latter 'chin-up' because I can't make a real pull-up on it - it's too narrow for me, I need more space between my wrists. Sorry for misleading.

u/SullyMac98 · 2 pointsr/Fitness
u/AdvocateReason · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Shoulders are what you need. You'll see results in two weeks, man. Get a copy of P90X through whatever means you have at your disposal ::cough::torrentifyou'vegotnomoney::cough::. Purchase these and this. Do not let that pull up bar intimidate you, man. You will be able to do pullups if you go the 90 days. Shoulders and Arms is the best routine. Stick with it for two weeks and that t-shirt will look a LOT better on you - of course it's way too big in the first place, but you don't want to go spending money on fitting clothes that you're going to shrink out of (if you stick with the P90X). You're also going to want something like this and maybe a few free weights if you're planning on getting serious with it, but really all you need right now is the bands to bulk those shoulders up. Get the resistance bands and do either the shoulder/bicep/tricep workout or get all of it and do the full workout. That will make you look better than any clothing you could purchase and make you feel better about yourself. Also post fashion pics of gf.

EDIT: Uhh...I just looked at your GW posts. You OWE it to your gf to buy those resistance bands. Forget the clothes, do the P90X routine!

u/kevmo77 · 2 pointsr/P90X

Price of ultimate plan: $370

P90X base plan: $140

Pull Up Bar: $30

Push Up Bars: $10

Chin Up Assist $35. This is a handy tool but a chair will suffice.

The recovery drink, while not a total waste of money, can be replaced with much cheaper supplements. I do stuff like protein powder and a frozen banana in a blender. Equivalent cost $40.

The real issue with ultimate package is the bands. You're going to want real weights. I went to a second hand sports equipment store and got a set of free weights at $.50 a pound. A nice full set will be in the $150 range.

Total: Around $400.

So for around $30 more, you can buy a much better set up than what's offered in the ultimate package. If you stick with it, you're going to replace the bands anyway.

u/elchupinazo · 2 pointsr/P90X

I also have extremely wide doorframes, and I finally found this guy that fits all the way across my doorframe (with room to spare).

u/P-K-One · 2 pointsr/spartanrace

...So if you have a backyard with a rig you can train for the rig? Who would have thought? When people say "You can't train for that" what they usually mean implicitly is "unless you literally have one in your backyard". :)

For those expecting something different from this video, I can recommend you one of those:

They really fit into every doorway. I put a towel on it and do towel pull ups which are great for grip. If you want more versatility in objects there are also various special grip things that you can attach to any bar/rig:

It's not the same as having a rig but it's the closest you can get in a small apartment.

u/OrangeJuliusPage · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Most people, including this esteemed poster, would suggest that you start off with some compound movements first before doing isolations.

Also, what the hell are you doing for your back, fool? Cop one of these pullup bars off amazon for $30. It's a great investment and hangs right off your door frame.

Even if you can't do many pullups now, build up to it, or knock out a couple every time you get up to go to the bathroom or to grab a drink during commercial breaks of your favorite TV shows.

I'm headed out now, but I'll try to throw down some extra advice if I think of anything later this evening.

u/generousheart · 2 pointsr/P90X

I have this one:

and it's pretty affordable. In months of use, it has not broken under my (125) nor my husband's (180) weight. I can't vouch for your doorframes, though.

u/ilykdp · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I wouldn't recommend doing it on any surface that isn't the right width - just a little wider than shoulder width.

I have this pull up bar and these olympic rings that I do dips on.

This way you can do dips with proper form and will make it easier to do negative training.

u/lurkrer · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I have this style which is very similar. I like it for pull ups and frequently use it for push-ups to change angles and positioning from my regular push-ups.

The thing that may or may not work for some people is the distance between the curved bars. As you can see in this photo, the bars are quite close together which does not make them ideal for an L-Sit. That means most probably need to buy push-up bars or something similar to get the angles right.

u/LeaningOnTheSun · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Okay! I'll give these a go one by one;

  1. You need almost nothing to do bodyweight fitness. If you have a place to do pull-ups and dips you're all set. Most stuff with the door is effective enough but I would recommend getting a door frame pull-up bar and some gymnastic rings so if the weather sucks you won't have to miss your workout.

  2. Weighted jump ropes are a great start. Some resistance bands like these are great for mobility work and adding assistance or resistance. I like to use a basic pair of push-up bars like these because they're easy on the wrist and add some range of motion to your push-ups.

  3. Super useful! Check it

  4. If you eat right and stick to your plan you'll get stronger and add muscle mass. Cut properly and do cardio and you get easily get a very defined physique. If aesthetics are your main goal though you should stick to a traditional bodybuilding routine.

  5. Supplements aren't necessary. I like fish oil though. As far as protein goes as long as you eat meat and eggs you'll get enough to build muscle.

    Good luck! Calisthenics is super fun. I still do weightlifting when I find myself at the gym but bodyweight fitness has become my primary goal.

u/Hackalope · 1 pointr/Fitness

I swore off gym memberships over 5 years ago, figuring that I could spend a lot less money on weights and equipment in my apartment. I bought stuff piece by piece as I needed/wanted/could afford it. Here's what I have now, in total:

  • A weight bench similar to this one
  • A pull-up bar like this one
  • 2 x 30 lbs kettlebells
  • 1 x 55 lbs kettlebell
  • 2 x 25 lbs dumbbells
  • 2 x 35 lbs dumbbells
  • 2 x 40 lbs dumbbells
  • A bike
  • A bike trainer like this one

    Now YMMV, I'm a guy that has never been overweight or out of shape. The one thing I know from trying to help friends that weren't a fortunate as my family is genetically is that I suck at helping overweight folks fix things. It's very hard for me to know what's safe.

    That being said, I would recommend starting with a kettlebell. Something that feels substantial without feeling like you can't control it, or at least lift it off the floor with one hand. Start with just putting it between your feet, squatting down and grabbing it with both hands then standing up - rinse repeat for 10 reps. Then move on to doing that with one hand, alternating. Then maybe move up to swings or cleans. A kettlebell is pretty versatile, there are exercises for most parts of your body with just that one weight.

    I'm able to put everything away in my closet for when people come over, but think about that before you buy anything like the bench I mentioned. The other thing you want to keep in mind is that having a bunch of weights makes moving that much harder.
u/AnthonyAstige · 1 pointr/loseit

/r/bodyweightfitness may have some options for you. I've heard good things about their starter program, though I haven't tried it myself. Though it won't give you a good program, I've used the [You are your own gym] ( app for exercise demos.

A big challenge with body weight strength training is lower body. Upper body push ups and building up to pull ups can get you pretty far. I bought [one of these] ( a while back to put in my door and it worked surprisingly well.

u/BeagleBoxer · 1 pointr/Fitness

I have this one and it's been good so far. If you weigh, say 200lb+, you may be better off investing in a Power Tower or something along those lines--though I've seen heavier guys use doorway pullup bars, I can't speak to the longevity of the bar or door trim. If you get this one, you should tighten the bolts the day after first use and week after first use. You gotta put something (I just threw a couple old socks on mine) to keep the foam from marking the door cause the black will stain (I was able to get it out with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser but YMMV it may have just been abrasive enough to remove the top layer of paint).

u/JorusC · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I have this one, and if you have the space for it it's pretty great. (It's not as wide as the picture suggests.) All sorts of hand-holds to change things up, the grips are nice, and it's sturdy. It's survived significantly more weight than you have without any deforming.

u/deadshotbravo · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

This can be used on your door frame and in my opinion is best pull up bar you can buy it directly from amazon.

The best thing which I like in it is that whenever I don't need it I just un mount it and put it in my store

Here is the link ( I am sorry for dip station because I haven't used one myself that's why I cannot recommend you)

u/iacobus42 · 1 pointr/Toughmudder

Run (elliptical) and bike now to get ready for the cardio. Also go out and hike (walk) in parks (with hills!). The distance is the hardest part of the TM. Even walking 10 miles is a challenge for a lot of people. Your feet will get blisters if you try to walk 10 miles today without having any preparation.

Focus on pull-ups and pushups. You will need a decent amount of upper body strength. Check out this video on pullups. There is no such thing has lacking access to a pullup bar. See this for 100 places to do pullups. Also consider getting a door frame mounted pullup bar. They don't damage your door/walls and are apartment (or Mom's Basement) approved. This is the bar that I use and it is only 30 bucks.

u/chirp16 · 1 pointr/xxketo

So, adding in some load-bearing exercise is a great idea! Nice job on the weight loss so far! If you are too shy to post your question in /r/bodyweightfitness, I recommend simply reading the FAQ they have. It's really helpful and I think you'll find the information you are looking for. Do you happen to have a pull-up bar? If not, you can buy one that goes in your door for about $30, I believe. Pull-ups are great exercises! I am a fan of the 50 Pull-Ups program. You can also just throw in some push-ups, too!

u/Trixforeveryone · 1 pointr/BDSMcommunity
u/DdangerWu · 1 pointr/Fitness

id recommend getting that. You can probably find it a tad cheaper but 30 bucks is around the price range. I recommend doing the wide grip and the furthest parallel grip. start by doing every other day and eventually you want to do it every morning everyday. it sounds intense but it's just 20 mins a day.

u/Joonami · 1 pointr/xxfitness

I'm not sure of the brand, but I got it at a sporting goods store. It is easily removable because part of it rests on the wall above the inside of a door frame and the other part braces against the molding on the outside of the doorway. Not just one of the tension ones that spreads between sides of the doorframe!

It's a lot like this one!

u/Scary_Mulignan · 1 pointr/Fitness

awesome! I'm assuming the one in your photo is the same as this one on Amazon?

Try on a door in an out of the way location, so a little banging won't show up. Also, put a hand towel between the bar and the wood. Do pull ups nice and slow.

Yep they are great and are not permanently attached to anything -- I highly recommend this one for under $30

u/drewba · 1 pointr/Fitness

Can someone reassure me that I'm not going to tear my pullup bar off the door frame? The door frame is sturdy and I've double/triple checked for studs. I'm still terrified that I'm going to fall mid pullup.

u/timbergling · 1 pointr/bodybuilding
u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/weightroom

For inverted rows, use a desk/table. For pullups, I recommend something that hangs over a doorframe like this one:

Just make sure it will fit over a door in your house and the doorframes are sturdy enough to support you.

u/Champ_Sanders · 1 pointr/Fitness

A bit of a follow-up question. How safe are door frame pull-up bars?

I can't put any screws into the wall, and something like This on amazon. Can it fall off easily?

u/algar32 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

> rings

Also, with regarding rings, would a bar like this that sticks out make it easier? I think I could get away with it with something like this
