I figured out a good substitute today and I am really chuffed about it. I looped my resistance bands over one of those laundry hooks you put over a door to hang clothes on, and pulled down on them until I was straining, and then held the position for a few counts. For me, this is even better than a bar, because I don't have the strength to pull my own weight up at all. As I get stronger, I can go down on my knees to increase the resistance. Plus I can easily throw both the hook and the bands in a suitcase for travelling. AND it takes up no extra room in my small house. A winner all around.
