Find a playground. Do a hood workout if u don't like doing them in doorway. Usually some good spots for dips there too.

How sturdy is the construction of the bar is and how much weight you want to add?
Could always go this route If you wanted to spend a little cash, they looked pretty cool when I was searching around.
this last one looked a little flimsy but it was the cheapest so I figured I'd throw it up there.

in terms of how much weight I want to add, I'm starting out low about 10 lbs and then add 10 lbs once I get to 12 reps, until I get my arms to grow. I want them to grow about 2 1/2".

The second one I think comes apart without any tools could always set it upOriginally Posted by DerickVonD
In the driveway then break it down when your done and I believe that one was rated to 350 lbs. The one you have, who knows could get away with using some lighter weights google it and see if you could find what the bar is rated at.

http://www.muscledriverusa.com/Pendl...Bar_p_886.html if I use it to replace my bench since the bench/squat stand and the bench seat are two separate pieces however that stand is too tall at 95", I'd need a stand no taller than 87" to fit in my room.

Well I bought it and its a piece of **** first of all you cant put it together by yourself if you dont have the "stabilizing support bar" that I didnt by because it was $80 more and the thing feels like its going to fall apart when I use it and thats just with my bodyweight. I'm going to try and send it back and buy the dip belt anyway and not go above 80 lbs for weighted pullups and hope and pray thats all I'll need to get up to to get my arms bigger and the pullup bar and doorframe can take it. Hell the door frame felt a hell of a lot more stable than the pullup station I bought.
