    Cool Bodyweight, pulling strength with no pullup bar

    Just wondering if anyone knows a way to work pulling muscles, back, biceps, etc, without a pull-up bar, I can only think of 'door rows' but they're so easy I don't think they're any use, and I don't want to go too crazy on it in case the door knob comes off and I'm sent flying backwards, resulting in possible death.

    Well you've got the CC pullup series step 2 - the horizontal pulls. You just need a sturdy table or something similar of at least hip height.

    A tree, an edge anything that you can suspend your body from and provides a good grip. It is difficult to not find something that you can hang from.

    Com. Michael, work COC grippers plus abs and you will up your pulling strength significantly.

    What's the problem comrade?

    There's a hundred and one places to do pull ups. Doorway pull up bars, play grounds, ledges, stairs, trees, etc., etc. And as Wooden Leg said, horizontal pulls is another option... If they're too easy with two hands, try them with one.

    Good luck.

    Have a closet? Do you have a clothes bar in there already?
    Get some extended rod supports to make sure it's secured to the wall - driving these into the studs - they sell these that can handle loads of several hundred pounds - a heavy duty one every 18" is probably more than enough.

    Tada - cost is minimal and so is time and effort to reinforce it. Just take your clothes off the bar - do your pullups with bent legs (forward, side, back - etc) and rerack your clothes when you're done.

    Landlord will be oblivious.

    If you hav eto remove them then patching the screw holes can be done with some basic paste.

    Throw a towel over the top of your bathroom or bedroom door, then do pullups. That's what I did before I bought the Door Gym.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I realise I must have been unclear, I realise there are loads of places to do pull-ups, the point of this thread was (since I've been re-reading the naked warrior and the idea was swirling in my mind) to see if suppose you were locked in an empty room, could you REALLY effectively work your whole body with nothing there. I'm sure there must be at least ONE occasion sometime when you just don't have ANYTHING, and since I don't use any weights/kettlebells, it'd be nice to know I can work everything with nothing.
    Also can someone explain how the grip and ab work relates to pulling, i'm guessing its something to do with irradiation..?

    Thanks again
