if you think you're going to pull the kitchen floor through into the basement! Clearly you don't really need a pull up bar - it's probably just for decoration. We have one of those too :)

I have little faith in the wooden beams...

If I can't do the pull ups I plan to have fun and do summer saultes!

Cool gift! 'Bent just has a couple of handles attached to short chains dangling from the basement ceiling. If I actually completed a pull-up on them, I would smash my head into the ceiling so it's just as well that I can't. Happy pulling up!

Bash! You need these: (it's the only way I can

Oooh, you are absolutely right! I think a real pull-up bar would be useful while we're shopping. Those little handles are scary.

Pop up a bar in the doorway to your kitchen from the hall. I grew up with one always in the doorway to the kitchen - it's hard to ignore in a doorway you use all the time. It's easy to ignore if it's in the basement. You'll have "guns" by summer.

It's right beside my crafting station - I can't ignore it!!

Coach LD, why would I go into a kitchen?

Good point Bash - but even if you don't cook, you do eat don't you? Maybe yours should go in the bathroom doorway. You do use that room right?
Hermes - what do you craft? Beautiful items for your class? for Christmas? or are you crafting sculpted arms, shoulders and lats with that pull up bar?

Bash could put it at the entrance to whichever room contains her computer/laptop... Her arms will be either massive or destroyed in a matter of days ;)

old inner tubes work the same as Pullupbands... and most of us have plenty of them around :-)
