Securing with wall plugs solve everything but precautions is a must. Floor type will certainly take up more space. I may consider a more complex pull up bar for my new unit 2 years later, just make do with what I have for now.

Can see a significant improved in upper body strength. Now trying to reach a total of 100 pull ups a day.

I used to do close to 150 pullups a day. Didn't see much improvement in strength. Doing weighted pullups or more difficult variations is better for strength. Close grip, wide grip, typewriter, archer, uneven, bar to chest etc. The same formula for weight training applies to calisthenics. low weights + more reps = endurance. heavy weights (or more difficult moves) + fewer reps = strength

That's impressive, perhaps you have reach your peak. brows.gif Fundamental plays a very important role, it will help you focus on a particular muscle group.

I do not recommend on Ftness Concept's pullup bar, that thing's quality is sh*t for a RM69 item...the platforms/knobs that extend to fit the door frame are made out of plastic....broke mine after less than a month use...found another alternative, and gave it another ,go from http://www.nile.com.my/product_info.php?products_id=9201 now this one does what it says, i'd do a backlever without the fear of falling down

Checked out the page, but the Q&A uses powderful England so I can't understand it. This bar can be adjusted to fit tightly between frames/walls without drilling? Did you drill yours? What are the screws for? Thanks.

I also found that the Q&A so difficult to understand.. It mentions doesn't need to drill hole while provide screw.
Could you please enlighten me about this? I don't want to screw a hole at the door frame.

screw probably is part of connecting the pullup bar structure, more like nuts and bolts, the pullup bar itself is a simple attach to doorframe and ready to support your weight there and then it is removable and can be placed anywhere again in a snap. make sure ur door frame has like a thick wood frame to support the upper attachment of the pullup bar.

oh just saw the pullup bar type, this one is easier it just extends to fit the doorframe, the screws are just optional when you want to make it a permanent fixture to that particular doorframe, if not u just don't use the screws, the pullup bar generally just extend on both side of door frame and apply force on both ends to stick onto the doorframe itself, make sure its doesn.t slip and test it prior to executing your pullups.
