What’s the one piece of equipment every guy, no matter how small his apartment, can have? Easy: a doorframe pull-up bar. But those are only good for pull-ups and chin-ups, right? Nope; the truth is, you can build an entire program around that one piece of equipment.
How? Check out Doorframe Pull-Up Bar Workouts, by Ryan George. If you’re a guy with serious space constraints, no nearby gym, or a love for minimalist workouts, it’s the book for you.
So, first things first: what can you do with a doorframe pull-up bar aside from chin-ups or pull-ups? Well, you have a whole bunch of different leg raises, leg curls, oblique twists, hanging crunches, dips, and more. Add in modified grips, isometric holds, and presses, and this book has over eighty different exercises, with step-by-step photos.
In fact, you can build a whole program with what you find here. Or more than one program, which we know, since the book has about ten of them, and it’s rounded out with dietary information, a little anatomy relevant to fitness, and a list of misconceptions for busting. Basically, if you want to lose weight, build muscle tone, or improve your fitness, all without an actual gym, Doorframe Pull-Up Bar Workouts has done all the work for you—except, of course the actual lifting. You’ll still have to do that yourself.
