Doorway Pull Up Bar

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this kind of pull up bar:

You can extend it sideways, where pieces of rubber will keep it in its place.

 

I currently have the one below, but unfortunately it doesn't fit every door.

I've had those, unless you're fairly light they don't stay up very well

there's a simiar one that uses screw in brackets that's better, but of course it requires drilling

I guess 75kg isn't fairly light?

at that weight the better ones will stay up as long as you aren't adding weight, and aren't doing tons of reps

they won't hurt anything when they slip, so long as you keep your feet under you

A few of them are really solid at that soet of BW

I have the screw on kind with a padded bar.  The ones that hook on the door aren't bad either. They are portable and don't require and drilling.

 

What I love about it is I'll often rip out a few reps when I'm passing through the door.

Ever fallen off?

I have that one, with the optional 'gravity band' good investment

true, but the friction mounted ones don't handle wide doorways either

I took the door off my closet to hang mine because the door opened the wrong way  :lol:

+1 what Jasper said. I have one of those. It fits exactly one doorway in my house. It worked great except it left a mark on the wall, which wasn't a problem until we got that wall - the dining room wall - painted. I'm just going to buy a joist-mounted bar for the basement and be done with it.

By joist-mounted you mean what kind of bar?

He is probably referring to something like this, which is what I bought back in 2012.  It mounts directly to the wall studs and is uber-stable.  I love it.  Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available at the moment, but there are other similar models.

Unfortunately I can't drill the wall because, well, it's not mine.
