Ahh, home workouts.
Love ’em or hate ’em they’re very much part of life now. Especially since the coronavirus pandemic hit and gyms were forced to close.
And although I do prefer the gym for exercising, I actually don’t mind working out at home…
I’m fortunate to have both the space (my garage) and equipment to get some decent workouts in until gyms can open again.
But while we definitely don’t need a gym for an effective workout, there are certain exercises that are difficult to do at home.
One such exercise is the pull-up. For me, those flimsy door-mounted chin-up bars just don’t cut it – I’m more worried about falling flat on my backside than performing the next rep!
So I was delighted when I discovered the Pull Up Mate – a portable pull-up bar and dip station – to add to my home gym and overcome that problem.
I always get excited to add something shiny and new to my home gym, so I thought I’d share my experiences of the Pull Up Mate so far…
