At the back of our previous house in the valley, there used to have 2 trees. One was a thorny pomelo tree, the other was a young coconut tree – just about 2 stories high.
Between the trees hung a long steel bar — made from
It’s a DIY pull-up bar. About 4 feet in length.
Dad made this for us because I was trying to make my own but failed. I managed to build one, poorly, that I almost broke my back when the bar slipped and I fell hard on the ground.
Having that pull-up bar, I was basically the guy in class (high school) who can make the most reps.
Dad used to tell stories of how cool pull-up bars
My dad’s pull-up influence kept me fit up to this day.
I still have one on our toilet door (it’s a doorway pull up bar). I can no longer do 20 reps but I could still manage 12-15 reps easily.
