I was thinking of getting myself a pull-up bar and placing it on my bathroom door. Evertime i enter the bathroom I must do 1 pull-up. Figured it be a good way to get some exercise on those days where i had too much fiber. lol. Anyone else done things like these? :lol:

Sounds like Pavels "Grease the Groove" except you would do as many pull-ups as possible without becoming overly tired. Good way to increase your pull-up numbers. I've been doing that with L-sits on the rings that I have hanging on my pull-up bar and with handstand push-ups as I walk past the wall that I usually practice them on ;)

Frank, that's an awesome picture! I'm putting that up on my college dorm room. Quite a few of my buddies and I have pullup bars in our rooms.

Good stuff.

Not a bad idea to do with any exercise your lagging in. There is more "skill" in functional exercises than in simple single joint movements (like a tricep kickback..no skill, just pink weights). Skill development ie. practice, will increase your WOD quickly. The more you practice, with good form, the faster you develop the skill.

I did this with the pull up bar across my bedroom doorway while at uni during the pull up challenge. Worked like a charm! I went from 12 to 32 pull ups pretty quick.

yup--my pull up bar hangs across the bedroom door and my rings hang from the bar. since eating is about the only thing i do everyday (besides the WOD) i would crank out 3-5 every time i ate. ring dips up next!
