    I've been looking for the longest time for a quality pullup bar that could go in your door frame but required no drilling at all, and I found the Door Gym and decided to buy it. This thing is fuckin awesome, mine just came today.

    It holds up to 300 pounds and hooks into your door frame very easily and stays there like a rock no matter how much you abuse it or kip during pullups. What I also love about it is you can take it and put it at the BOTTOM of your door frame and hook your feet under it to do situps and you can also use it to do these quasi-pushups (you'll know what I mean when you see the pics), but I bought it for the pullups and it's great.

    You can do underhand pullups or the side pullups, but you can't do the overhand widegrip pullups out to the side because there's not enough room, but that's not a big deal at all for me because I only do underhand pulluops so it was a non-issue (i believe they sell some sort of addon for it though if you want).

    Bought it for $49.99 and it's worth every penny.

    For situps, your feet easily hook under there very secure:

    You can use it for pushups like this with your hands on each of the handles sticking up:

    I was waiting for someone to review it. I am most likely going to buy one soon since I am moving down to Scranton, PA for co-op and need something that doesn't require drilling. Where did you buy it?

    I have a gym membership and I go 6 days a week (went from 235 to 182 over the past 4 months), I simply wanted something where I could easily do pullups at home since I seriously need to get my pullups up, I can only do like 4 right now and 5 on a good day when i'm pumped up :ugh:.

    Anytime I walk through the door, I do a full set of pullups to failure. Should have my pullup #'s up in no time....

    I bought it from a local fitness store called "Busy Body" or something like that, but you can find them online for cheap... there's a guy on eBay selling them for $35 + $15 shipping which is the same price as in a store ($50).

    Also, I think Everlast makes something similar to the Door Gym for pretty cheap also.

    It takes not even 1 second to put up and take down, you just rotate it.

    It's very secure, it's a catilever design so it won't ever damage your door frame and that's why it can support so much weight (300 pounds).

    Looks good but I got the one where you need to drill. Takes up less space and you could always leave it up. $10 ftw

    That's pretty neat. Not everyone can afford to go to a gym. Basic equipment like dumbbells are great and thi sis a nice addition. How much weight can it support?

    I dont get that. I just bend my a little so I dont touch the ground. The other people that do it keep their legs stiff and say "im too tall for this". Then I give them the :ugh: face for making excuses.

    Good Idea, when I started in the same boat as you. Now I can do 4 set at 12reps wide grip. I going to have to order one for my little brother.
