I put a door bar on my bedroom door for doing chin-ups for many years, a long time ago in the US. Somehow my daughter brought up the idea a couple of weeks ago and I put one on the door of my daughters’ bedroom. Since then we have been doing stretchings and chin-ups on it.
Last evening I was pulling myself up until my chin was above the bar when it slipped. I crashed.
My back side hit the floor first, then my back, and finally the back of my head. I was conscious all the time, and I remembered clearly the sequence of events. I felt the back of my head, and it didn’t seem to hurt. My neck was a bit stiff but otherwise seemed to be OK. It was really fortunate that I landed on my backside first, and my head hit the wood panelled floor rather than the concrete wall.
It was a great scare and a great escape. God was kind to me. He was warning me off taking unnecessary risks.
Naturally I vowed not to do chin-ups on the bar again. Otherwise my wife would probably kill me first before the bar does.
