Question:

Can I use a pull up bar with plasterboard walls?

Trying to get fit and build up my muscles.. my friend recently got a jml pull up bar for his bedroom door, but it doesn't screw in, it rests on the door frame and is very strong. He has fairly similar walls to me, but can't be sure. I have a new build house in UK, will my plasterboard walls support my 70kg weight? Thank you :-)

Answer:

Try and do a pull up on it and if you hear any noises of it weakening or cracking then don't use it. I got a pull up bar that wasn't supported right and i fell to the ground while using it and the pull up bar fell on my back.. Lol that hurt.

a door frame would work. plaster board will push away, and you will fall.
