the short answer is there is none. you can use resistance bands http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQUGnF-5PHM&fmt=22. but the problem is it is not remotely the same. moreover those bands are kinda expensive. just save for the bar in the meantime, or you can use a broomstick placed over a two chairs and do lay down pullups in the meantime.

Thank you for this! I'll try it out. I don't think I'll have a problem with cardio and squats, but the ab training is going to be the death of me. And I don't think I've ever been able to complete a full pull up without cheating and kicking myself up the wall.

Just remember to really breathe steadily. When you dont its only more painful. and eventually ab training becomes less intense. I'm actually trying to make ab training harder for me XD.

A FANTASTIC substitute for doing pull ups -

Find a tree
Hang a sturdy rope from a branch that sticks out (also sturdy)
Climb rope, hand over hand
Repeat

Works most of the same muscle groups, and hey you get your ninja training in too!

Please, please don't fall though, that'd be bad.

I'm 15 and can't really afford a pull-up bar, so can I lift weights instead? I'm not looking to loose a whole bunch of weight, I just have this little belly that is nagging me. ;-;

Best idea ever. No one has ever mentioned using a broom and chairs before to do pull ups. I have never been able to do a single pull up and that seems like a good way to start!

This sounds like an excellent work out! I think come payday I may have to go invest in that pullup bar Thank you so much for posting this!

By the way, do you have any specific pullup bars to recommend? (either for design or price?)

>o> if I'm trying to not lose any weight at all, would doing just the warmup and resistance parts of this help me tone up a little more?

I'm very twiggy, and want just a bit more definition that...well, almost all anime boys happen to have, and I don't

if you are twiggy, eat more! Just make sure you eat right . I used to cut out cardio, but it really helps you in so many ways, its not worth abandoning.

Just gonna mention this, but the pull-ups can be tricky for beginners, especially women. Women aren't built for as much upper body strength as men are.
Boyfriend elaborates (he knows more about this than I do):
"It's not just pull-ups, it's almost everything upper body. Women are about even with men when it comes to leg work and core/ab exercises, but back, arms, chest, and shoulders are naturally weaker for most humans because they aren't used nearly as much on a daily basis. But men are just designed with more muscle and bone structure in that area, plus a higher production of testosterone acts as a really powerful catalyst in muscle growth."

For instance, I am not a weakling, or particularly out of shape, and I can barely do one. 8-15 is a pretty unrealistic "beginner" number. And really, it should probably be less in general, since pull ups should be nice and slow. You'll do less, but it builds muscle faster,
