A man using a doorway pull-up bar to exercise at home ended up in a heap on the floor when it suddenly gave way. 

The CCTV video, filmed in the city of Zhaoqing in Guangdong Province in China, shows a man named Chen working out in his home. 

However, the pull-up bar suddenly falls off, throwing Chen to the ground.
