Barbell replacing lat pulldowns.


Recommended Posts

Glad I asked! Thanks fellas! This is really my first time really getting into working out! So I'm still a bit of a novice haha! :)

Just don't quit! Keep going with a positive attitude and you will change into a stronger, healthier person. Roadblocks for the defeated are just speedbumps for the determined.

One warning: the pull up bar may be strong enough, but watch out for your doorway. My household (both of us under 180 lbs) managed to start pulling the door moulding out of the wall in a couple months. I moved my bar to work where the doorway is steel.

Current challenge:This is not how daemoncorax used to wake up

Previous challenges: DaemonCorax doesn't go on vacation

(STR 21; DEX 3; STA 10.5; CON 8.3; WIS 15; CHA 2 - but these are SUPER out of date.)

While we have to stay away from the desert, we can always ride our bikes.

So that's my thought as well! I was looking through the apartment I am currently in and there really isn't a suitable / strong place/doorway that I could hang the set from :/

You could always reinforce the moulding with bigger, better screws or nails.

What about at work?

 

Well as a missionary, the world is our office haha :) So don't really have a work office to do such a thing in.

They kind of frown on us doing those kind of things to the apartments we stay in... don't have much of an option to alter the apartment.

 

In other news;

 

I will be spending some christmas money to get a bench to work out on! Since the mission won't pay for one haha.
