    I'm afraid it's going to break just looking at it.

    Of all the cheap equipment I've seen at K-mart has been shitty. You just have to hang of that, at your low weight, to see how much it would bend and break in no time.

    If you want to just have it and look at it, then it's worth $99. If you want to actually use it, then avoid.

    Are you supposed to do dips on those two little handles?

    Count me out.

    Looks decent aside from the handles for tips.... they rather thin.

    At less than 145 I would imagine it should support you just fine. $100 isn't bad to have something to do pullups, dips, and leg raises on whenever you want.

    not sure about that particular model... I have one similar to it by TSA and it's pretty dope. the pullup bar feels like shit and I'm afraid it's gonna break one day, sending me to the ground where my knees will shatter... but it's nice to have an implement for exercising at home when you can't make it to the gym. Get some adjustable dumbbells to go along with it and buy or fashion a dip belt and you can have a decent upper body day from home.

    Well it might not be just a K'mart brand, but I'm sure it's still shitty quality.
