Plus, just take a video of yourself as it comes away from the door frame and you fall on the floor, and you get £250 cashback from You've Been Framed!!

If you use it right then the door frame is the most likely part to come away.

I'll 2nd that. Need a really strong wall/door frame for these. The sound of wood cracking is really off-putting when trying to squeeze out your first ever chin-up.

Good price though

I'm thinking of doing the P90x Workout which needs one of these bars. Anyone on here done the workout, i'm a beginner at working out so i wondered if it was ok for beginners to do.

If you turn the lights out at night and listen really carefully you will be able to hear your architrave crying.

Or just watch the cracks in the plaster appear

I had a look at the DVD's & decided it wasn't for me. I figured I'd need a range of Dumbells & other kit to do it properly. From a glance at Tapout XT, it looked better as less equipment was required. Insanity is also supposed to be very good.

I'll like to see someone that weight being able to lift themselves up in a chin lift. I'd pay good money.

I've been using this exact bar with no problems apart from having to tighten the connections occasionally. It hasnt damaged the door frame at all but it has left 4 marks where it has come into contact with the frame. Not a problem for me though. Just to add i didnt use the brackets that come with it. I use it freestyle so to speak. Been using it for 8/9 months.

Good price if i can use it on a joist in the garage

Doesn't count. He doesn't look like a fat guy, he looks like a steroid guy.

I bought a pullup bar very similar to this called the iron gym around the same price so guessing theres no difference. Its reliable with a good exercise variety, does no doorframe damage from what I've seen and I'm 90 kilos doing fast reps, a good buy

I have this - it's excellent, but worth noting that even with the pads it will mark your doorframe... At the very least the paint will come off where it pivots and hooks onto the doorframe. Having said that I have used it in rental accomodation and nobody noticed come check out time...

I'm halfway through round 2 of insanity. Best shape of my life!! Doesn't need any equipment but I'm thinking of doing a p90x/insanity hybrid next.

This design of chin-up bar works fine. Just make sure that on the door that you plan to use it on has enough space on either side of the architrave for the bar to protrude.

I have this, and its excellent! Main plus point, it folds down flat so it doesn't occupy much space. Which is ideal if you have limited space. Also there are no fixings or brackets, so NO drilling or assembling required, unfold, put up and start pressing within seconds. It's strong and rigid, where the device presses against the door frame are thick rubberised protection pads, so no scuffs or dents or cracks. The design of the device distributes the weight of the person across different points of the door, at the same time keeping it rock solid in one place. Only caveat is, check your door widths to ensure product can sit across on both sides.




One other point to note, the powerbar 2 can also be used to do pull-ups which are by far more difficult than preforming chin-ups. I'd say most folk could squeeze out 1 chin-up without any prior training. However, I wouldn't say the same for a pull-up, most folk would struggle to even get-up half-way.

So keep this in mind, once you've mastered chin-ups on the device descibed here, you may need purchase another for pull-ups.

Hi, I've done P90X. It really is incredible seeing your body change, and this pull up bar will more than suffice.

Keep at it and look at the before and after photos on the team beachbody website. Inspirational!

The power bar is a really good idea, personally. If I were to buy another pull up bar it'd be this one as you won't be able to do effective wide pull ups with anything else.

As good a deal as this is, if wide pulls up are important to you do NOT buy the pull up bar listed.

who said anything about fat?

P90X ........phhht.......spat nails in the face of it .......in the day........

Had one of these a few years back (think it was the Iron Gym).

Much better idea than the ones you jam in the door frame as it's virtually impossible to slip off. Doorframe marking is minimal if you're careful (had worse door frame marking from the inside-door frame models though luckily the landlord didn't notice...) and my flatmate managed to lift his weight (approx 70kg) + 25kg plate (it was the biggest standard sized one) on a weight belt. Creaked a bit, but didn't break (both the Iron Gym and doorframe).

Pull ups are very good exercise and a decent benchmark of your level of fitness. Plus, also good if you climb/boulder like I used to.

Got mine from Sainsburys yesterday For £6.99 marked down from £19.99. I believe it is nationwide at moment as most of the exercises stuff are discounted.

You can use this for Pull ups too, just have your hands facing the other way on the middle bar.....

Not sure you can, to gain the full benefit of a pull-up you need a more than shoulder width apart grip, from the picture it seems to be quite compact & nowhere to place your hands for a wide grip. So you wouldn't exercising the full range nor intensity with a shoulder width apart grip.

Chin up son, chin up.

This looks terrible. Look how low the bar is. Compare to a solid well made bar like the Powerbar 2 which actually puts the bar ABOVE the height of the door frame. This makes a massive difference.

These will leave barely any marks on the door if the bar is well made. Most of the pressure goes on the horizontal pushing contact points, not the top of the door frame, therefore minimal or no marking.

...also the powerbar 2 lets you put your hands wider than the door frame, so you can do wide pullups too.
