I used to have a very good one of those pull up bars at school, we then moved, but there were still a few good places-like doorways with the window on top missing, but now the bars on top come to a point /\ so I can't really use them

I've done chins on a bathroom door like that once, but it had a short of sharp ridge on the top. It didn't cut my skin or anything, but y'know.

LOL @ the fact that a few of you have already tried this. :lol:

I knocked out a set of 10 yesterday a couple times and while it wasn't the most comfortable thing it didn't cut up my hands or anything. The thing held up pretty well too....

If there's a parking garage or other "unfinished" area in your office there are usually exposed plumbing or sprinkler pipes on the ceiling. I use those nearly every day.

I actually used to do pullups using the bathroom stall. It was a nice old stall, so no sharp edges, etc. It was also an engineering office at a manufacturing plant, so there would be very few other women in there to wonder what the hell I was doing.

than I swiched plants and depatments and the stalls had that stupid V-point at the top....yeow.

I just started at yet another plant, haven't really looked at the stalls yet......hmmm.....

Ok, I admit, I have done pullups on these bars many times. Wad up about three paper towels into each hand and place them over the 'V' and you can just keep kipping assuming you don't pull it out of the wall.
