For people with over-the-door pull-up bars at home, what do you use? I'm 6'1" with monkey arms and a little concerned that I'll be dragging my knees on the floor at the bottom of every rep with most of what I see out there.
125k pull-ups in 2015 - Page 71
Not sure if "over the door" is any different to the standard iron gym type thing? I have a door frame bar and at 6'3" have no problems. I do tuck my knees up in front of me rather than bending back below the knee.
100 pull-ups is a minimum part of my standard 30ish min calisthenics routine now
it comes with time
when I got back into martial arts in college and saw Bruce Lee's lat spread I said "I wanna be able to do that some day"
The pure beauty of exercise is that it is only you and the challenge you make for yourself.
There will be injuries and tests of devotion, but it remains a constant you can count on during emotionally trying times.
Calisthenics helped me these past two really rough years when other goals eluded me due to complex circumstances; no matter what those were and what state my body was in, I knew I could pick a physical task and attack it.
When I was injured, I'd change the task and attack that.
I cannot do everything I want to be able to do. I will learn to do more of those things before I die, but not all of them.
But I firmly believe that you should move your body however you can whenever you can. It is the most direct form of expression we have.
do 'em all in an L sit
or bend back from the knee, just make sure your core is engaged such that your thighs point slightly forward
+ 100 = 117,908
