Hey everbody! I hope everything is going good...Just got a question is it ok to do pull-ups form your roof if you dont have a bar? Because I notice i get alot of tricep work by doing this, by placing my hands shoulder width apart.

do them wherever you can: roof, doors, bars, swing sets, etc.

Just don't fall. Because that will be pretty embarrassing when trying to explain to the firefighter/emts who have to rush you to the hospital. :biggrin:

Matthew-
The tricep extends the fore-arm at the elbow AND extends the humerus at the shoulder (think pinching the shoulder blades together/rear elbowstrike/chicken pose thing). On a max PU effort it is not odd to feel the upper rear arm being recruited.
