Doorway Pull-up Handles

Below is a new video tutorial where I demonstrate an easy and inexpensive way to create doorway pull-up handles for use when traveling.  A brief demonstration of the handles is included at 3:29 within the video.

  1. Hi Ross…nice to meet you!
    I’m Italian and I apologize for my English. Unfortunately I did not understand from the video how attach the straps to make the Doorway Pull-up Handles safety! if you can write me the process to build this I’ll be grateful!!! thanks for the advice from your site :D

  2. @Mario – Just cut a piece of lashing strap (or something similar) and run it through two small pieces of PVC. Tie a secure knot and you are ready to go. I’d also suggest sanding down the edges of the PVC however to avoid ripping into the straps.

  3. a couple of small wedges under the bottom of the door at each end will take the stress off the door hinges. there may be an advantage in pulling up from the side that will keep the door closed ie the pvc anchor is pushing to keep door shut. OB

  4. Good idea. You could slide a small piece of wood / metal under the door to take the stress off the hinges. A $0.50 wooden door stop would do the trick. Light and easy to pack

  5. Ross,
    Always enjoy your training and home gym ideas. From experience, I think your doorway pull-up handles are a safer alternative to the doorway pull-up bars on the market.

  6. ROSS!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!…..YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING GENIUS!!!!!!!!!…..I LOVE ALL OF YOUR VIDS….

    THANKS DEEPLY FOR MAKING US STRONGER AND SMARTER!!!! :))

    LOVE AND GREETS FROM GERMANY!!!!!!!…..

  7. Ross,
    So glad I came across this post a month later. I do a lot of traveling, and when traveling the easiest/most effective training to do is bodyweight circuits. The biggest thing I’ve struggled with is finding a convenient way to do pull-ups without a bar. This solves it, thanks!

  8. Hi Ross,

    I live in Asia, lashing straps are difficult to come by from the hardware shops. Do you reckon it is possible to use paracords? Thanks
