Elite Rings on a door way pull up bar

Hello all

Im new to the forums and should be getting a pair of elite rings in a couple of weeks. I just wanted to know if anyone has the rings mounted to a door way pull up bar. I currently have a 'power bar' http://www.powertrainer.co.uk/ which i plan to attach my rings to but was wondering if i would be limited in my exercises. I plan on taking the rings outside in the summer but as its very cold its not possible at the moment.

Also, is there a better, or more practical pull up bar out there that i could use to mount the rings on

Thank you

Josh

Re: Elite Rings on a door way pull up bar

Hi Josh,

doorway pull up bar ok for dips, supports etc. For MU I put a bar/block of wood across my (open) loft hatch and pullup from landing so at top of movement my head is just poking into loft. Hope this helps.

Lee,

That is a brilliant solution. I've been limited to ring dips rather than MUs by the low height of my garage, but I'll give the loft hatch idea a whirl.
