Best Home Chin-up/Pull-up bar?

  1. Best Home Chin-up/Pull-up bar?


    Does such a bar exist that doesn't require any permanent fixings to the door frame which can safely support ~90KG/187lbs without slippage or breaking the doorframe?


  2. I've had the iron gym pull up bar up in my doorway for a year or so with no problems. I weigh 190lbs. As long as your doorway aint termite fodder it will do.

    My coworker is about 215 and it's fine for him. That's about all I can assume for 240. It prolly wouldn't hold up to years of being your only pull up bar, but an occasional one I think it would do. The iron gym is pretty cheap, I bought mine at bed bath and beyond and used a coupon to boot. If you need a hardcore everyday gonna Kip and use wieght bar you may want to look into building a real rig.

  9. I used a door frame pull up bar for awhile but I eventually upgraded to a mount on one. It's MUCH better and not too expensive, I got mine from Pacillos.
