My review of the Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar

I've tried other doorframe chin up bars before. The Iron Gym Workout Bar is a chin up or pull up bar and so much more.

Pull-ups or chin-ups have never been easy for me. I started with only being able to do one. Now I can do a few sets of 3-5. My goal is to be able to do sets of 10. They are not easy, but it is really gratifying to feel myself getting stronger as I find these exercises easier and easier to do.

For me, this is a great product that complements having a gym membership. If I don't have time to lift weights or train, I can still go downstairs and bust out a great 10-15 minute upper body workout.

Like the product description says, this is a total upper body workout bar. It is great for pull-ups, push-ups, chin-ups, dips, crunches, and more.

For pull-ups, there are three grip positions: narrow, wide, and neutral so that you can strengthen both the inner and outer back muscles.

The work out bar is easy to install requiring no tools or fasteners of any kind. If fits in home doorways ranging from 24" to 32" wide and doorway trim or molding that is up to 3 ½ inches wide. The bar will support up to 300 pounds of weight.

Chin-up bars are great for a strong back

Chin-ups are a great exercise for one of the largest muscle groups in the body. Most people struggle with chin-ups and the only want to get better is to practice.

If you struggle with chin-ups, try using a step so that you are spotting yourself with your legs. Try and pull as hard as you can and use your legs to push just enough so that you are able to do a few reps.

If you do that, you soon be able to do chin-ups with out any assistance.
