Ok now that got your attention, ;).
Just bought myself one of these:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/compact-home-...hash=item140252231163&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1308
Would advise anyone having issues with pullups to buy one, they are the dogs bollocks.
Yes they are more expensive than the 7 quid ones from Argos, but you get your moneys worth.
Not only can you do full pull ups, you also don't piss off land lords with holes in the walls. And since they have a big fat deposit off me, it's not something i want to do.

what no beer porn?

Yeh the argos ones are good but of course you have to drill in the wall/doorframe. Ive got one of the older argos models where the bracket for the bar takes three screws on each side and its solid as hell, think it can support about 20stone, also have a newer argos one with only a little screw thing to go in the doorframe but most of the support comes from the rubber grips on the bar which you tighten into the frame, think that only supports like 12 stone or something.
What you got there looks good, im currently doing some SIA training at this dodgy place above a bar, one of the rooms by the toilet have some gym equipment in and it had something bit like that in the door, but it had more bits coming off it for different pull up positions, was good tho, busted a few chinups out before going back to the class :), much better than what ive got at home.

That looks quality - didn't even know they made them like that.
Might buy one of them - only 1 nights beer money.

Is the bar fairly grippy? Looks quite a polished finish from the photos....

*text deleted*, you want to hope you have some strong plaster board above the door. :)

I was going to get one of those, but instead I bought a £7 Argos one, but instead of putting it in the door frame, I put it on the loft hatch on in my room. I didn't need to screw it at all, because its resting on the main ceiling supports (strong enough for the job, the ones you walk on). It doesn't move about because it's tightened onto some more supports going the other way.

I would suggest everyone to see if it fits in their loft before buying one of these.

yeh its good to have the bar high up, my bar is right up at the top of my door, and still even though im short i have to bend my legs so im not touching the floor when i extend which still works but its a lot harder having to stretch or jump up to get to the bar.

i got one of them and in a few week i went from being able to do no pull ups (marine style) to being able to do 8!
tis a quality piece of kit and if anyone is worried about pull ups i recommend you go and buy one!
