    When they walk into the room, they do however many chin ups or pull-ups they can do.

    Every day

    If you can't do one chin/pull-up, then cheat by putting something under the bar so you can help yourself by pushing up with your legs a bit.

    In Judo class, I have students help each other.

    The goal is to be able to do one complete rep by yourself. Then two, then three, etc., then "cheat" and do more.

    Part of the whole thing is to be able to activate the muscles you need to use, and the cheating helps you to learn to feel how to do that.

    And no, I don't do chin-ups. The sound of my shoulders grinding is really gross...

    Definitely this. I did the same thing - got one for home, and one for the office. Got the idea from a guy that looked like the Hulk. He basically put a pullup bar in every doorway he uses regularly, and does at least one each time he crosses a threshold. In an office environment, this also leads to things like friendly competition, which is a fun side effect, and good for morale.
