You might not need one if you have a wall with open top ;-) But good stations just for pull-ups are hard to find. Might wanna check out this thread.

Theres a cool station that you can order from the internet or make yourself, its called the door gym and looks pretty useful, if you want the link to the site to buy it or blueprints to make your own pm me.

chipset - Thanks for the link. That's a good starting point.
Frontflip - tried to pm you, but for some reason it's not working for me. Yeah, I'd like to check out that site you mentioned.

Thanks for the help

Just throwin this out there but if you have a deck or anything at your house like that, you can easily do pullups on that.

You can go to a local sporting goods store and theres usually a doorway mounted chin-up bar for $25 or less.  I got mine at Dick's Sporting Goods in VA for $14.99 on sale.

That's a pretty good deal. Does the bar do any damage to the doorway though?

Sorry I'm replying back so late.  You would have to screw it in, so there's mild damage, but nothing a little putty or paint can't fix
