The chin up bar you choose for your home gym could make a lot of difference in the results you will or will not achieve. Get a non-sturdy piece of junk and it’ll most likely become a clothes hanger. On the other hand, if you purchase a quality station, you’ll get years of use out of it and enjoy using it. Of course, this means that you will also get great results from using it.
One thing that you want to look for is the comfort of the actual bar itself. I’ve seen cheap made bars that have no padding and have rough areas causing a lot of discomfort. Make sure the bar you choose has a padded area or at least a smooth finish that won’t be hard on your hands.
Another thing to look for is the sturdiness of the whole station. Some are uneven and move around when you are using them. Of course, a quality one will not do this. A quality free standing pull up bar will be sturdy from start to finish of each exercise you do. You should never experience the bar tipping or falling over when trying to use it.
The overall design of the station is also important. Many people put them in a spare bedroom or a small workout area and don’t have a lot of space. With the latest ones on the market, you don’t need a lot of space but make sure you read the measurements before purchasing one. You don’t want to get it home only to find out it won’t fit in the area you’ve chosen to put it.
The best pull up bar for you may be different from what someone else would choose. Just remember to plan ahead, read reviews and take advice from people who already own the one you are looking at. Find the perfect one for you and you’ll be thrilled to make use of it.
