I find it ridiculous how many companies out there are trying to push you stupid training equipment, when in fact you can simply use things lying around the house to create your own training equipment.
- I’ve developed some really intense workouts using things lying around the house. I’m not a handyman, and hate the thought of actually building things. But, I recently had an issue with figuring out how to do chinups in my garage.
- There’s absolutely no way you can hang any sort of doorway pullup bar, or bolt anything to the walls (because I don’t own my garage). Theres a wooden overhead thingamagig you can hang off of, but it’s really dirty.
- You’d probably get a lot of splinters in your hand, and it might even break or wear down. The garage is old – maybe even over 50 years.
So, I decided to scour my house and garage to see what I could find. I tried out a few ideas. The first idea was hanging a piece of a water hose over the top of the wooden thing. They didn’t work because there was basically no grip.
- You’d slip after performing 2 chinups. The next idea I had was putting a belt over the top, but as I was about to do that, I realized that my Karate belts might be tougher. So I pulled out my purple belt, tied a not, swung it over the top, and walla!
- I had a chinup implement. The karate belt was perfect because it was extremely durable. I’ve used it for a few months and there is absolutely no sign of wear and tear. In addition, it solves the grip problem, since when you tie the two ends of the belt together, they create natural handles.

I hope the video motivated you to go out and find new ways of training in your own home or garage.
