First, when I couldn't find the Iron Gym at Walmart, I made the mistake of settling for the Perfect Pull Up bar instead. What a PITA that was. Required drilling like 8 holes in my landlord's doorways - not sure they would have been to keen on THAT...and all kinds of measurements and hardware, etc. Scratch that. Hit Target yesterday and picked up this bad boy (pictured below) for $29.99 instead. Will return the other POS to Walmart after the holiday.
I had the Iron Gym sitting on a chair in my living room when my daughter picked it up, walked into the dining room and slapped it in the doorway connecting the dining room to the office and says, "is it supposed to fit like this?" And here it is -
I hadn't tried that door. Of the dozen doors in my entire place, that was the one I never tried it on and it fit perfectly. Thanks, Brenna. Now I apparently need to "show her the love" via a trip to the mall...we'll see.
So, now when I return from my beach sand-bag runs I can do my pullups without having to drive to the gym or nearest playground. Let the training continue!
I now have to take her to the mall. wish me luck.
