My sister was a gymnast (a State-level medal-winning gymnast) when we where in high school so we always had a pull up bar in a doorway of our house. At some point we installed a pull up bar at 321 in Palo Alto between the kitchen and the living room and all the housemates had guns (the arm kind) as a result.
The idea to install a pull up bar for Harper Sue occurred to me after a recent swim classes when Harper’s instructor was speaking to the importance of upper body strength in developing the ability for a toddler to climb out of the pool by herself. Fifteen bucks and two days later (thx amazon) we where in business.
