We have this pull-up bar attached to our bedroom closet door. My husband does pull-ups, chin-ups, and whatever on it.
He's had it before me.
I tried it once when we were dating. Could not budge. I couldn't even pull it up an inch. Overweight and out-of-shape at 157 lbs. made it impossible. Oh, 157 lbs isn't so bad? It is when you're 4'11".
Never tried it again until about three months ago. I had worked myself up to just dangling my chin above the bar for 25 sec. I would do this a couple of times/day.
This morning I did my first pull-up (palms facing me of course). Then I tried it again to make sure it wasn't a fluke. And I did another one!!! Way to go Idaho!!
One day I'm going to do a crossfit class. I watch Bob Harper's do crossfit and I want to do this too.
(Sorry if this sounds like I'm bragging...you just have know idea how HUGE this is for me).
