The Iron Gym pull up bar is a great tool for quick and easy upper body exercises. I recently purchased one and really enjoy how simple and easy it is to use. It's pretty small and easily installed and removed for storage. Construction is surprisingly simple. It comes disassembled and includes all the necessary components and tools to put it together, so you need nothing extra except what comes in the box. It's very light weight so lifting it into place isn't a problem. In fact the only heavy thing involved in with the Iron Gym is using it to lift yourself!

It is designed to be used in a doorway. It will wrap around and use both sides of the doorway for extra support so you don't have to worry about putting too much weight on any specific area and wrecking your door frame. The bars that contact the door frame are padded so there is no need to worry about ruining your finish whether a fancy wood or painted.

The Iron Gym is a great tool but don't make the mistake and assume it's a full body workout. It isn't by any means. It is, however, great for what it's intended for. I highly recommend it.

What can you do with an Iron Gym?

Pullups: There are several types of pull ups you can do. There are grip pads to do pull ups with your arms close together, or spread out at the ends. Then you can do pull ups from the perpendicular bars that stick out from the front. The varied positions allow you to work out your biceps, triceps, forearms, back muscles, shoulders, and abs.

Situps and Ab workout: After you're done with pull ups you can put the bar on the floor and brace it against the door frame to brace your feet for sit-ups. Sit-ups work your abs and with your feet braced it makes things a lot easier so you don't go scooting across the floor. There are many different ways to do sit-ups to work your various ab muscles and this bar allows you do them with ease.

Dips and Pushups: Then you just remove the bar from the door frame, and place it on the floor and it makes for a great dip bar. Dips work your back muscles and arm muscles pretty well.

As you can see the Iron Gym makes a great multi-purpose upper body workout all in a simple, easily built, portable design.

The best part is that it's really cheap too! I've seen it priced anywhere from $19.99 to $39.99 depending on which version you get. All that for such a small price is a real bargain. You don't need fancy gyms and weight machines to get a nice simple upper body workout. Even with all the fancy tools many of the exercise routines today always default to the basics such as pull ups and sit ups.

I love mine.
