Ok, I know there are alot of gimmicks out there but this might be worth its salt.

http://www.perfectpullup.com/

I have heard good things about the perfect push-up. Maybe the pull-up is a good idea too?
I'm not one to go out and join a gym or buy over $1000 worth of home equipment, but this might be a good compromise for me. $100 for the push-up, pull-up and arm straps.

At least I'd be doing some home exercises (none of which I'm doing now, but I do handle over 6000 lbs. of boxes (20-40 lbs. each) during my work week.)

Anyone have an opinion on this product?

My opinion is that you can vary pullups enough without that gimmick. Wide, close, reverse grip. Towel pullups, Corn cob....All those come from Tony Horton and his P90X routine.

For $120 the P90X is a bargain.

Look into that.

I personally wouldn't be able to use that gadget for a wide grip pullup to exercise my back. A normal doorway wouldn't be wide enough. The only thing it would be useful for IMO is for those bicep-curling front "chin-ups" that work mostly the bicep muscles.

Pull up and at the top you pull yourself to the right, then to the left, then back to center, push away from the bar and pull back to the bar, then lower.

And the P90X is an incredible set of workouts.

I like my own custom made version of the perfect pull up bar that I recently installed in my garage. All for less than $20 at your local hardware store.:)

If you want to save some money look at www.crossFit.com. All the workouts are free and there are videos of every WOD (workout of the day). I have been doing it since Oct. gained 100lbs in deadlift, can do about 4 strict pullups and 10 kipping pullups started at 0. We work our core alot and the commnity support is amazing.

i will also vouch for P90X. I just finished a workout a little while ago, and by the end it took a few minutes before i could get up off the ground. although get ready to hurt. because you will, and another good thing about it is it never gets easy, you are always working, and you get a lot stronger and see results pretty fast because of it.

Definitely a great program!
