100 Places To Do Pullups

Pullups are the #1 best way to build wide, flaring lats!  Many of you though say that you dont have anywhere to do pull-ups but pull-up bars are everywhere!!!!  Dont believe me?  Check out this video where in three hours I found 100 places to do pull-ups.

In the home:

  • doorway mount pullup bar
  • unfinished attic rafters
  • basement pipes and rafters
  • clothes drying racks
  • garage door opener tracks
  • tree limbs

In the city:

  • back side of stairs
  • back side of bleachers
  • soccer field goal posts
  • playgrounds
  • school playgrounds before or after school hours
  • from tree limbs

On the farm:

  • barn rafters
  • tree limbs
  • tractor buckets

Use your imagination!  What helps a lot is a rope and handle contraption, below are two examples that you can easily make.  With these portable pullup bars all you need is a strong overhead beam or tree limb and you can do pullups anywhere.  Just toss the rope over and go to town!

With the above rope apparatus, you can do pullups anywhere there is a strong beam overhead!  You don’t even need to make this stuff though as pullup bars are everywhere around you no matter where you live:

A word of warning, make sure that whatever you are doing pullups from can hold your weight – especially plumbing. Never do pullups from plastic piping or piping that is not well secured. If the pipe can move, it will likely rip apart the joints and cause a messy leak. Notice in the below photo I am doing pullups from a pipe that runs thru holes in the floor joists. A pipe like this is very secure because it is tightly secured every 18 inches. Grab the pipe as close as you can to the floor joists rather than out in the middle of the span to reduce the load on the pipes. If you have any doubt about the security and strength of the pipe – find another spot.

Pullup bars in the city

Playgrounds and school yards are great places to workout but do it when they are certain to be unused, either very early in the morning or late at night to avoid panicked parents calling the cops and interrupting your workout 🙂
