Marcy TC3000 Powerstation

Hi,

I am strongly considering buying one of these as they are shorter than other chin/dip stations I have seen. My workouts would solely be chins/dip/crunch/hanging leg raises adding weight to chins/dips when I can.

I was put off over models because they were too tall for my ceiling - 244 cm.

I've seen the height of this thing advertised by different online shops as 182cm and 206cm.

Going with 206 cm as worst case, do you think my ceiling height will mean I can't chinup to my sternum? (distance from sternum to top of head is approx 35 cm) so this would mean 244-(206 + 35) = 3cm spare headroom when I'm at top position of the chinup.

Does anyone have one of these or have any opinion on this? Would I be able to build a decent upper body with one of these?

Cheers,
FuzzyB

    ALERT ALERT!

    Nobody has replied to my post yet! Does anyone have one of these?

    Weighted Chins/dips, the holygrail - keep it simple, all you need? Some people say they are if you don't care about legs like if you do loads of running etc instread.

    On sunday I did as many pressups as I could to prepare my triceps/shoulder/chest in case I get one a chinning station. My triceps have been been feeling as if they made of cement since . I am struggling to put my cup of tea to my lips without grimacing. Have to use two hands

    However i wll be doing more once the pain subsides. Pain is comparable to when I decided to do a load of calf raises one day for no particular reason. THat was really painful aswell so I think I'll do less and start slower next time.
