The door pull up bar has become a popular piece of fitness equipment for any home gym. They are relatively inexpensive and allow you to perform pull-ups any time of day, right at home. There are two basic types of indoor pull up bars that you can purchase. The first type is the mounted version which requires permanent placement in a door frame. This may be ideal if you place it in a room that is dedicated as your home gym.
The second type is the removable version that fits in just about every door frame. These are the preferred type because they can be moved from room to room, stored away, or even taken with you when you travel. They use your body weight as leverage to support the bar within the door frame.
The permanent versions may be a bit stronger since they are bolted into place, however the downside is that they can be an eyesore if you place them in a common area.
When selecting a door pull up bar, it’s probably best not to go too cheap as the cheaper models may not be able to handle a heavier weight. Have you tried any of these types of pull-up bars? What is your recommendation?
