Do you mean a pull-up bar or a weight bar?

I do pullups also. (I talk about them in an earlier post)

As for weight bars, they work for some people, but I am trying to simulate the body movement of takedowns and throws using weight and you can't really do that with a weight bar.

I find that using a groundnpound bag as weight is the most effective weight excersise I do because it builds physical strength while also helping build proper technique. The weight bar excersises are good for building conditioning, but they don't simulate actual technique.
