The Total Upper Body Workout Bar is a multi-function strength training device that promises to sculpt your upper body through pull ups, chin ups, and abdominal work. And that’s just while this versatile pull up bar is hanging high on your doorframe. Move the Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar to the ground and you can use it to perform dips to work your triceps, pushups to work your biceps and chest, and sit ups to hit your abs.
Iron Gym has made one of the most popular pull up bars
on the market, and with good reason. It’s designed to be used and abused while providing excellent, bodyweight-only exercises. The Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar is very strong and durable. But the best part is that it can be moved around without permanently fastening it to anything.
With this type of doorway pull up bar, you don’t need to drill holes, attach fasteners, or use any screws, bolts, or tools at all. The Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar utilizes leverage by way of a plastic bar that sits above the lip on your doorframe. The curved side passes through the doorway and the leverage bar rests on the sides of the doorframe. This secures the workout bar in position, and redirects the weight downward when you’re doing pull ups or chin ups. It can handle a person who weighs up to 300 pounds.
Note, you do need a doorway with the lip, trim, or moulding up to 3.5 inches wide for the bar to rest on. Also, the door way needs to be 24 – 32 inches wide to accommodate the bar. So measure before buying!
The Total Upper Body Workout Bar is great for workout programs like P90x, or for incorporating into your own home workout routine. Read on for our full review:
