EZ Curling at Home

a better door bar
  [vote for,

A chin-up bar mounted on the doorpost has been quite useful as one part of my training routines. However, often the unnatural wrist positions on the straight bar makes the grip feel uncomfortable and ineffective when doing chin-ups (palms towards the face) and pull-ups (palms away from the face).

An EZ curl free weights barbell has a W-shaped bar to make underhand and overhand curls more efficient training of the correct muscle groups without strain. Therefore a chin-up bar, to twist into or hang on the doorpost, should be made with the same angled bar for better home exercise.

       Yes they should.

       Simple, yet effective.

       [Somewhat disappointed this is something to do with exercise, rather than some curling-stones-on-carpets device.]

       I'm with you Dr. C, I was hoping to see 'curling' with grandma's biscuits, or a bean bag game.

       Same here, I was expecting to see something with spray teflon and linoleum floors. The chin-up device is something I would try. +

       [Zanzibar] That's good for wide pull-ups, but there're no angles for chin-ups so the thumbs point upwards (psst you need some work on those calves).
