A great price for this amazing piece of kit. Check out the reviews, this thing is a beast!
A much better investment than a cheap bench and weight set - take a look!

The makers of Powerbar, which was well received by amateurs and professionals alike have released the Powerbar2, which is comprehensively better than the original.

On Powerbar's e-bay website they currently have a listing for Powerbar2's, where the customer hasn't signed for it and it has been returned to sender. The upshot of this is that you can get a Powerbar2 for just £25.99 delivered instead of £29.99.

Bearing in mind that there aren't any third party vendors for this item, this really is the best price you are going to get and I see it as being an alternative to a home gym. The Argos deal for £39.99 the other day got me thinking about having an effective workout at home, should I be unable to make it to the gym and this fits the bill. It collapses to just 30mm in seconds.

Read the reviews on Amazon, it's a smidge under £30 delivered there. amazon.co.uk/Inn…J0M

It is supposed to be very kind on doorframes, without chewing them to pieces and works for people up to 20 stone (although 30 stone users have been able to successfully use it without any problems!)

Even at £29.99 this is a steal in my opinion, the ebay page says there are 70+ views per hour of this thing!!

This thing stands at 6'6" if you measure floor to bar, so is great for the taller gymgoer.

Here is the info from their site:
The new and improved Powerbar 2 still has all the features that made the Powerbar such a success, such as: no screws, a unique 'high-up' chinning position, foldable design and zero assembly time, but this time we've taken on board some customer comments and made improvements:
•New door mouldings so the bars fit neatly onto your frame, causing no damage
•Improved lower grips to ensure no slippage and minimal movement
•A revised shape and structure to give the ultimate sturdy bar experience

This thing is the price of a month's gym membership and in my opinion far better than a budget vinyl set of weights. The compound exercise is working many muscle groups instead of isolating just one.

Deal has gone cold, am posting a pic of some vinyl weights hoping it will increase the temperature.

£40 is about right of ebay.

Erm that wall would be a task. You could always mount it to the side / rear / front of the house / garage

I'll give the Powerbar a fair crack of the whip as it's supposed to be the best removable one. If it falls short I'll consider the RDX, it looks like a hefty piece of kit!

It's a shame this deal hadn't got more heat as I thought HUKD was ripe for buying into body weight exercises - maybe in another year or so! hey ho

Guaranteed to damage some part of your door, mines got dents and cracks, im moving out end of the month hope it's not noticeable lmao.

Plenty of videos on You Tube showing guys mounting walls and pavements.

good to keep wet towels

Is the guy in the pic included in the price or is he extra?!

Used the bar tonight and it's epic. Anyone considering buying one won't be disappointed! Looking forward to doing casual chin-ups whenever I so choose lol!

I can vouch this is an excellent fitness device and without a doubt should be part of any fitness conscious person.
As the OP has said no damage is caused, thick rubber pads rest on the door frame.

Takes seconds to setup and align with door after several times of use. The build quality is good - strong, durable metal tubing, have had mine for over 6 months without fault. Well designed product with space saving in mind, the arms fold in flat and device can be stowed away easily without taking up too much space.

Without a doubt, any gym starter should have this as part of their fitness arsenal. There's no denying this is very difficult exercise for beginners, with perseverance and good form results rapid upper body strength, targets multiple muscle groups if you switch between chin/pull ups.

Recommend Scooby's Workshop, for tips on starting out doing pull ups/chin up

I keep going past the downstairs bathroom and thinking 'I'm gonna do a few sets of chin-ups methinks'
I think it's much better doing it regularly than just a couple of times a week at most at the gym because it becomes a more natural movement that you adapt to quicker. Thinking about buying some of the 5kg plates from Tesco for £3.50 if I can find them to use on a belt to add resistance going forward.
