Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar Review

Updated on February 24, 2014

I’m all about finding simple and inexpensive ways to get a good workout.

You shouldn’t have to pay a ton of money to buy fitness equipment or to use someone else’s.

The easiest way to squeeze in a workout, for some, is to workout at home.

But what if you don’t have any gym equipment?

A lot of the time you don’t really need any!

Body Weight Workouts

Your body is all you really need to get a good workout. There are so many different exercises you can do, to work your whole body, without a single piece of equipment!

Some of my favorite body weight exercises are squat jumps and burpees. Squat jumps will REALLY work your lower body and burpees will give you a good total body workout. You can watch the video down below, on the right to see how to perform a burpee.

You know that you’ve done some body weight exercises, or calisthenics, before so there’s no reason to say you can’t afford to workout! How many people can say that they’ve never done a push up, a sit up, crunches, pull ups, chin ups or walked up stairs?

Wait, what!?

Yes, walking up stairs is a body weight workout. Try sprinting up a flight up stairs, walking back down and sprinting up them again for as many times as you like. It’s not hard to come up with body weight workouts… get creative!

It’s pretty easy to perform a lower body or core workout without any equipment needed. But to work your upper body more completely sometimes you need some kind of fitness equipment.

Don’t worry, I’ve got that covered!

Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar

When I first saw this piece of equipment, I thought it was just a portable pull up bar, but it’s much more than that!

Sure it IS a pull up bar, but the Iron Gym Workout Bar can be set up in seconds without you having to screw it down! You don’t have to worry about damaging your wall or doorway.

All you need is a doorway that’s 24 to 32 inches wide and you’ve got yourself a sturdy pull up bar! This thing is so heavy duty that it’ll hold up to 300lbs.

It hooks over the top of your door frame’s trim and is held in place by leverage. It will work with trim up to 3.5 inches wide. It’s actually a pretty cool idea and it’s CHEAP!! You can have this baby out of the box, put together and ready to go in about 10 minutes.

Start Your Home Workout Today!

Alright so now you have an inexpensive way to do pull ups, chin ups, bar hangs and maybe even some hanging knee raises. I wouldn’t call that a “total” upper body workout just yet but let’s look at what else you can use this workout bar for…

  • Hook it to your door frame down low and it’ll hold your feet while you do crunches or sit ups!
  • Put it on the floor and now you can do deep pushups!
  • Put it behind you on the floor, put your feet up on a chair and you can do dips with it!

Now we’re talking!

The Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar really helps you work your upper body, and your core, in a variety of different ways. You can grip the bar in different ways to add even more variety to your workouts.

You can hit your back, biceps, triceps, abs, chest, shoulders and forearms all with this one inexpensive piece of equipment!

Add your other lower body body weight exercises to the mix and you have a total body workout without leaving your home or paying a lot of money… you can’t beat that!

So now you have no excuse as to why you’re not getting a good workout. You can’t tell me that it’s too expensive, that you don’t have time or that you don’t have room for equipment.

Whoever invented the Iron Gym Workout Bar had all of those issues in mind when they designed it.

What's YOUR Experience with the Iron Gym Workout Bar?
