Choreboy = Best Husband EVER!

Sorry ladies, but it's true and there's only one of him ;)

No, seriously, this is what the man made for me:


Please excuse the apocalyptic stash of toilet paper, but there are priorities, dammitAhem.  And the wallpaper is on the list of "stuff we're going to make go away," because it's ancient and hideous.

Anyway, so he didn't form the metal bar from ore dug from the yard, but he did sacrifice his entire closet door and make the holders for my pushup-support/ chin-up/ reverse row/ tricep dip bar.  There's one more slot closer to the ground that I didn't get in the photograph, but you get the picture.

This is a godsend because as I have been griping forever, my lower body is out to get me and there was only so much upper body I could do at home given the weights we currently own.  With this bar, the bodyweight stuff I can do for my upper body has just doubled if not tripled. 

Goal:  to eventually be able to do a REAL pull-up.  That one, at least, should be attainable. 

The dude just rocks.  Love you, babe!

I love you too dearest one :)Fortunately if you get tired of that setup I can put the door back in place and no one will be the wiser. And this beats the hell out of having another piece of equipment in the house ;)

More to the point, this is exactly what I wanted, rather than something I'd have settled for (cheaper, too!!) :D

And yuppers, Norma -- he sure does!

That is awesome!

Oh, awesome! Even if my house was FULL of those pups, I would never be able to do a pull up. I am a WIMP!
