    Default CC and Horizontal Pull equipment

    Any recommendation for an equipment to do CC Horizontal Pull at home? I found a table, but I find it harder to grip it. I would rather have a bar where I can wrap my hands around it for a better grip. Also I think I am going to find it very hard (pull ups is very hard for me). So I want to start with the bar high and and lower it to make it harder, and I plan to spend a lot of time in this step.

    I used a TRX type suspension system and hooked it to a solid door. Now it hangs from my door frame pull up bar, I have an old piece of closet rod I put through the handles if I feel like using a bar. Not the best system but it works.

    Elite XL Freestanding Pullup Bar - TrapezeRigging.com

    and this

    RPG System - Pull-Up Bar & Rings - Rogue Fitness

    and you'll be set.

    That's the exact same set up I use at home.

    Im using a bar that you put into a door frame. Advantage is that it allows you to set the bar at whatever height you desire, but then you are limited by the height of the frame itself, so you may not able to do a full hang, which you need for later steps of leg raises.
    You may also find two objects of the same height and place any bar on the top ot them.

    Works if you already have a pullup bar or equivalent.

    You need:

    - two 5 metre rachet straps (kinda like the straps on a rucksack)
    - Two strong PVC pipes (roughly 2 cm in diameter, 13 cm in length; you can get ones with a larger diameter if you want to challenge your grip but make sure the pipe walls are thicker else they'll break)

    1) Take strap and loop one end through the buckle;

    2) Then take that end and thread it through one of the pipes. Tie a very strong knot (Google "knot types" if you're not sure).

    3) Now you can attach the looped buckle end to pullup bar and freely adjust height.

    Ok, so that may not have been clear, thus, I've attached pictures of my setup below.

    Looks complicated but is quite simple. Costs no more than £10-15 and you can get the straps and pipes from hardware store. Beats paying £100 or more for TRX. Been using mine for couple years now. I bought my straps here:

    250kg cam buckles - Mini Ratchets - Ratchet Straps

    They have metal buckles, so less likely to break. Whatever you do, make sure you tie knots strongly. I never use mine for full on hanging work just to be safe. Only for things where my feet are on floor.

    A slight variation on above:

    Thanks all for the wonderful answers. I live in a rented property and don't want to be damaging any door frame. I am leaning towards the freestanding pull up bar.
