Are you looking for the best pull up bar? In this video we’ll break down the top pull
up bars available whilst comparing them for price versus performance. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best pull up bars on the market, we have included links in the description for each
product mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which one is in your budget
range. Starting off at number 1 we have the Garren
Fitness Maximiza Pull Up Bar. The Garren Fitness Maximiza Pull Up Bar is
made of chrome steel and comes with three sets of mounting hardware. Two of the sets can support up to 300 pounds
of weight. The medium-duty door mount can support 150
pounds and is not recommended for use above waist height. You can also use the bar without door mounts
for sit-up foot support and other light exercises. The bar is adjustable and fits doorways between
26 and 36 inches wide, and it can be installed so that you can still close the door. The bar features non-slip, extra-long foam
grips. Garren Fitness cautions against using the
Maximiza for gymnastics, and they suggest applying your weight cautiously during the
first few exercises to ensure the bar is safely installed (a smart practice with any pull
up bar.) Garren Fitness provides a “100% Satisfaction
Guarantee” so you can get a no-questions-asked full refund if you are not satisfied. We Weight took the Garren Fitness Maximiza
Pull Up Bar for a test drive and appreciated how unobtrusive it is, that it’s sturdy and
strong, the grips are non-slip, and you can easily readjust the bar. Healthier Land included this model on its
list of the top pull-up bars because it’s heavy duty, affordable, and can hold up to
300 pounds. However, the reviewer didn’t like that there
was drilling involved for installation. Around 90% of the people who reviewed the
Garren Fitness pull-up bar on Amazon gave it a 4- or 5-star rating. We encourage you to read the customer reviews
on Amazon because some of them are fairly entertaining. Buyers like how easy it is to install, though
it may take a little work to get it to the right length. There are several buyers who use it on a daily
basis and have not had any problems with it, though there are some reports of the foam
grips wearing thin over time. At number 2 we have the Ultimate Body Press
Ceiling Mounted Pull Up Bar. The Ceiling Mounted Pull Up Bar from Ultimate
Body Press has three high-density foam grip positions for standard, wide-grip, and 20-inch
parallel-grip pull-ups or chin-ups. This model has a powder-coat finish for added
durability. The 14-inch reversible risers are designed
to fit either 16- or 24-inch joists. The mounting kit comes with instructions,
a template, and mounting hardware. You will need a drill, tape or pencil, and
a step ladder. Ultimate Body Press offers a fairly nebulous
100% satisfaction guarantee with this product. Dark Iron Fitness featured this Ultimate Body
Press model on its list of the best ceiling mounted pull-up bars because of its solid
construction and multiple grip handles. However, it lost points because the bars are
not welded to the mounting brackets, which could affect long-term durability. On the other hand, Top Fitness Magazine found
this bar to be quite durable and also liked the many grip options. Lastly, Garage Gym Builder ranked this as
the ” Best Wall/Ceiling Mounted Pull Up Bar Regardless of Cost.” Again, the reviewers were fans of the three
padded gripping positions. Around 75% of the Amazon reviews of the Ultimate
Body Press pull-up bar give it 5 stars. There are several buyer comments about how
easy the assembly was to install with the guide for drilling into studs. One buyer said it took longer to get the right
tools than the actual installation took. There are a few complaints about inconsistencies
in the product. Some verified purchasers report that their
bar came with damaged grips. At number 3 we have the Stamina 1690 Power
Tower. The Stamina 1690 Power Tower is a free-standing
full-body workout unit made of durable steel and fitted with padded foam in five sets of
grip locations. The overall size of the assembled tower is
49 inches long by 42.5 inches wide by 81 inches high. The base of the tower features no-slip endcaps. Stamina states that the capacity is 250 pounds,
but as noted below, it’s closer to 200 pounds in practice. In addition to pull-ups and chin-ups, this
model is designed for tricep dips, sit-ups, push-ups, and leg raises, though there is
no backrest to assist with the leg raises. USA Home Gym had several glowing comments
to make about the Stamina Power Tower, including that the handles have comfortable padding,
the footprint is relatively compact, and that everything you need for assembly comes in
the box. Weight Racks and More also recommends this. The Stamina 1690 Power Tower has more than
1,000 5-star reviews on Amazon. The biggest complaint about this pull-up system
is that it can wobble a little bit, especially if you weigh 200-plus pounds and your muscles
are starting to tire. To counteract the wobble, consider using a
socket wrench to really tighten the nuts. Other than that, buyers report that they have
had success using the tower to build up their muscles to the point where they can easily
perform pull-ups and chin-ups. At number 4 we have the Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym
Doorway Pull Up Bar. The Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym Doorway Pull
Up Bar has three padded grip positions for hammer grip, close grip, and normal grip pull-ups. The 300-pound weight capacity makes it so
you can use this model with a weight vest. There is some assembly required, and all of
the tools needed are included with the bar. The Multi-Gym Pro adjusts for height and works
with doorframes that are up to 6 inches deep and 33 inches wide. The bar can be placed on the floor to assist
with push-ups and sit-ups. And, Perfect Fitness stands behind the quality
of this model with a one-year warranty. Wirecutter chose the Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym
as the best pull-up bar on the market because it’s unlikely to damage woodwork, fits a broad
array of doorways, and has three grip locations. Yet, the reviewers found that the wide grips
were a bit too wide for people with narrow shoulders. Top Fitness Magazine also recommended this
model highly because of its adjustability and affordability. And, Garage Gym Builder appreciated that the
grips go beyond the width of the doorframe to help you work your back a variety of ways. Around 75% of the reviews of the Perfect Fitness
Multi-Gym on Amazon are positive. Buyers like that it is easy to assemble without
the need for extra tools, has flat supports on the ends of the bar to keep it from marking
your doorframe, and the foam grips help you avoid callouses. However, there are several complaints. First, many recent commenters found the bolts
that the bar came with were defective. Also, a few buyers found that the Multi-Gym
didn’t work with their doorframe. Make sure to measure your preferred installation
location before you buy this product. And for our final pick at number 5 we have
the Iron Gym Pull Up Bar. The Iron Gym Pull Up Bar works much like the
Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym. It hangs on a doorframe and stays in place
through leverage. You can also remove the pull-up bar to perform
sit-ups, push-ups, and dips. The bar is made of a combination of plastic
and steel, and it comes with everything you need to assemble the unit, including a hex
open wrench. There are foam grips for standard and wide
pull-ups. However, the parallel grip handles are fairly
small and awkwardly positioned. Lastly, this model comes with a comprehensive
workout and nutrition guide. LiveStrong provided a pretty even-handed review
of the Iron Gym Pull Up Bar. The reviewer liked the price, the push-up
handles, and the simple leverage mount but was not impressed with the limited range of
motion when doing dips and the potential for marking up your door frame. Top Fitness Magazine called this model “one
of the least expensive, deceptively simple, yet highly powerful pieces of exercise equipment
you can buy.” The Iron Gym Pull Up Bar has nearly 5,000
4- or 5-star reviews on Amazon. Buyers like how it takes about five minutes
to put together and another few seconds to install or remove. There are no complaints of damage to door
frames or walls. One buyer found that their door was too narrow
to support the pull-up bar so he added toilet paper rolls to the ends to make it more secure. The biggest complaint is that there are several
plastic elements that have snapped after heavy use. So that sums up our top pull up bars of 2019. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
