The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Anyone ever used one of those doorframe pullup bars?

    Has anyone ever used those pullup bars that mount in the frame of a door? They claim to support a few hundred pounds of weight , but it's hard for me to imagine them working without screwing up the doorframe.

    there alot stronger than you would think just make sure you get a decent one and install it correctly but it would depend on the type of wood your doorframe is made out of.

    I have one .. I weight 238lbs and it holds me fine.

    By the way, my door frames are made out of crappy MDF but it still hold my weight.

    With a piece of cardboard they will not damage your doorframe at all.

    Although it is cheaper to build a nice one than buy a nice one

    There's one over at my parents, it doesn't even screw into the doorframe and it still holds up great. I'm only 165lb's but my dad is over 200 and it's been up for years.
