/ Home made training
If I buy some holds, what's the best way of attaching them to the bar to use for training over winter?
I've always been skeptical about these types of pullup bars - is it solid enough?
get two rectangles of 3/4" ply wood a bit wider than your doorway, tack or screw some strips of wood onto the top edges of your boards, these will latch onto the top of your doorway, clamp it to the frame with four coach bolts. I did this inmy last flat and had campus rungs on one side and a big sloper some crimps and a pinch on the other.
I got me one of these: http://www.needlesports.com/Catalogue/Rock-Climbing-Equipment/Training-Equipment/Finger-Boards/FR200...
Find it useful because it's really 8 sets of holds in one.
I've tried using rock rings but like dapoy says, I'm too tall and my knees are on the floor
Any other suggestions?? Andic, i've having troubling picturing what you mean
similarly.. free hanging training devices
