    Rows target different primary muscle groups than pullups. Granted, they're similar, and the major muscle groups in pullups are the minor muscle groups in rows, and vice versa, BUT they're not exactly the same. But yeah, I'd agree that rows are probably the next best thing.

    One of the best ways to increase your number of chin ups/pull ups is to work in negatives.

    Using assistance, start with your chin at the bar and slowly let yourself down. Try for a count of 5 seconds per rep.

    Some gyms have a chinup assist machine. That helps alot too.

    Can't you just mount one of those cheap doorway bars? It probably ain't optimal, but they seem to get the job done. Also, there must be a "healthtrack" kind of **** in a park where you live... they're everywhere.

    Yeah, I LOVE my doorway bar. Pullups and hanging knees raises for only like $20. How can you go wrong?

    If you have a partner with a heavy gi, have them wear it. Lie on the ground face up, have your partner stand over you. Reach up, grip the lapel at their neck level and do pullups like that. This will also work your grip.

    You posted this exact same thing at MAP. Get a bar that you screw into your doorway. End of story. It's really much simpler and more effective than dumbell rows or anything else.

    Luckily, our patio roof is supported by heavy iron rails. You can't really grip them with your whole hand, which means that you have to grip with just your fingers, but I guess that helps as well, to some extent.

    Alright this is real ghetto but it works. I couldn't put up a doorway bar because I rent and the off chance it might ruin something. You get 2 chairs, the higher the better, I use bar stools, and a stick. Try using a wooden hanger rod, I think there a little better you can pick one up at Home Depot, or if you don't feel like supporting corporate mediocrity, you can pick one up at you local hardware store if Home Depot hasn't put them out of business yet. Or you could be like me and pick up this at Sports Autority
