Customer reviews

I was previously using a door mounted pull up bar during p90x workouts and I always felt the range of motion was restricted. I got used to hitting my head so much that I decided to get something more serious. After some research I ordered this one and since I am not a handy person, I got professional help to install it. The experts however went beyond the recommendations and added additional support by cross linking joists making it absorb lateral, rotational or swinging stresses. The final result was a very sound installation. The wide stance is really wide and the neutral bars are a plus. This would satisfy most exercise buffs. I am looking forward for better results.

Joist Mounted Pull Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles is sturdy and offers different grips for different pull ups. I ended up reinforcing the studs to support my weight and so far everything works fine.

The main complaint was that the bolts would not fit through standard studs but this is a very simple fix as they do not cost much at the hardware store.
