The hardest bodyweight exercise for me to do is pull ups. I don’t have a pull up bar in the house or a nice tree branch to do one on, so I usually have to improvise. When I have done my Primal 5 (squat, pushup, plank, shoulder press and pull up) exercises, I have had to find time to go to the local playground or do inverse rows under the dinner table. Inverse rows are effective, just not under the table.
Last weekend I noticed that Academy Sports and Outdoors had an Elite Fitness Power Tower on sale and that it was the perfect size to fit into the corner of the bedroom! Sweet. ….. I brought it home and assembled it under the skeptical eye of my wife.
My wife was really doubtful that it would ever get used and just end up collecting dust! Well I use it for pull ups about twice a week. My wife, son and mother-in-law use it just about every day! It’s a good feeling to see the family working to stay healthy.
Seems like I made a wise decision.
