I have one of the these

Pros - folds flat in 5 seconds

Very solid (I was ~200lbs when i started with these on a fairly flimsy door)

Can hang rings off the wide handles

Cons Things like skin the cats are hard due to the 2nd bar.

Need to make sure legs are in right place or you can dent your wall (very very minor dent above my wall from this)

Need to check it would fit your door

u/henry_tennenbaum · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I have this one, called the "Powerbar 2". It is very stable and in contrast to some competitors it puts much less weight on the door frame. It folds aways nicely, but there are two obvious problems:

  1. It's from the UK and a quick search on didn't show up any results.
  2. I have no idea how door frames in the US compare to European ones, so I can't vouch for compatibility concerning the door width.

    EDIT: "Fits most doorways 680mm - 800mm"

Offer to pay for any damage? Mine has taken off some paint and left a black smudge on the right side (after ~10 years use).

Some people come up with ways of limiting damage. I use towels for wide-grips, but it's a bit of a nuisance.

(I know it's too late now, but I would have just bought one, used it, and apologised later).

edit: some come with extra padding (although that one gets some shitty reviews). This one might spread the weight better than my own - it looks like a good design.

I use this pull up bar and think its great. Doesn't damage the door and feels very solid and can be installed and removed in seconds if having something permanent is not possible -

u/ShittyAssAccount · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Don't buy one of those, they will come loose eventually and fuck up your paint regardless (and bash your knees), you also can't do pull ups on them because your elbows hit the door frame, get one of these instead, more expensive but worth it, you won't fuck your paint up and you can do both pull ups and chin ups, you can also take it off easily with no bother.

u/thrope · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I've posted this a couple of times but not affiliated with the company. I think the Powerbar (made by a UK company) is really the best design. For me it is higher than any others, fits more doors (only restriction is the width of the door), leaves no marks and most importantly folds flat for easy storage under a bed/sofa.

u/BelaBartok · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I have one of these and I like it.

I definitely think it's a worthwhile purchase because I love pull ups.

u/littlepie · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Powerbars have no foam and have a bit of extra height on them which is nice

u/sir_jeremy_irons · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

UK links here but I've just bought this one, and it's great.

The main advantage of this one is that the bar is much higher than the ones that hang down from the door frame, like this.

I found I was almost kneeling on the floor with the latter type and they feel a bit unsteady sometimes. Having said that, the only time it fell off was when I forgot it was there and headbutted it off the door. I've headbutted the new one once and it fucking hurt, but the bar stayed up.

It's sturdy as well so you could probably bludgeon someone quite effectively if you needed to defend your property, which is great because bludgeoning isn't really covered in the RR and it's a wonderful all round workout.

I just grabbed this one:

It's all my budget can afford right now. Christmas killed me. Should be ok on one of the supporting walls. My door frames are pretty strong.

u/2PlateBench · 1 pointr/Fitness

I have one of these at the house. I place a piece of hardboard where it touches/rests on the wall. I check this every so often. My son doesn't and we now have holes punched through where the hardboard moved whilst he was repping out 30Kg weighted pullups. He checks now.

u/thesteg · 1 pointr/Amsterdam

I have the following pullup bar and I'm very happy. It's a simple set up and you have a little bit of additional height due to design of the bar

u/dangermoose5 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

This is in the UK so not sure if you'll find the same but it's extremely well built and sturdy, I really like it.

u/danielsamuels · 1 pointr/Fitness

I got this one in February and it's amazing, you just put it up when you want it, doesn't break your door and is just generally awesome.

u/dr_dt · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I have one of these. It's cantilevered to put the bar higher up than you would usually get from a doorway pull up bar, so you haven't got to bend your legs as much.

u/opticl3 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Looks pretty solid. More solid than mine and it handles a pull up bar just fine.

Edit: bear in mind the "between the doorframe" bars will probably damage the frame anyway through compression and rubber rubbing off on the paint.

Ones like the powerbar2 (which are much much better imo) won't damage the frame but you may well get some black from the rubber rubbing off on the frame.

u/Pascals5foldacca · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I bought this


It saves fucking about with screws, and can be stored away. The build is great; doesn't move during use. It also gives you more head clearance than screw-in bars.
