Step 1 – LocationThis is the first step in installing the pull up bar and is a very crucial step. Since the bar will be handling a lot of weight, it is imperative that you choose an apt location to install it. Make sure that you have the correct dimensions with you before starting the installation. The doorway pull up bars are designed to easily fit into a 32” wide doorway with border trim. This means that you will need a total leeway of 32”, distributed evenly on either side. Avoid doors located in corners and also ones with weak frames. As much as possible, try and make sure that you do not exert undue pressure on weaker surfaces.Step 2 – Deciding on oneOnce you know the location, decide on the model that suits you the best. There are a plethora of options available in the market, and this should not be a difficult choice if you know what you need. Make sure that all your requirements are satisfied and that you are happy with the equipment before settling down on one. If possible, try it out before you buy to make sure there are no issues while using it.Step 3 – Installing the BarThis is probably the easiest step of them all. Once you have your pull up bar in hand, go to the location where you had decided to install it. Next, center the pull-up bar in the door frame and raise the pull up bar such that the rear horizontal beam rests on top of the trim. The horizontal beam on the inside of the door frame should be resting comfortably on the frame and be parallel to it as well as the floor. Occasionally, you may feel like the pull up bar is not resting as comfortably as it ought to. In this case, install the door “J” brackets to fasten the pull up bar against the frame. The disadvantage with this is that it will leave holes on your walls, which is not preferable.

“If you have a doorway pull-up bar and a floor to do push-ups on, you’ve got everything you need for a complete upper body workout.”—Al KavadloDoorway pull-up bars are sturdy, easy to assemble, easy to use, and inexpensive fitness tools that anyone who exercises should have in their home. I spoke with Al Kavadlo, bodyweight strength guru and author of the definitive book on pull-ups, Raising the Bar: The Definitive Guide to Pull-up Bar Calisthenics. He said, “A doorway pull-up bar is the simplest and most versatile piece of fitness equipment you can buy for your home. If you have a doorway pull-up bar and a floor to do push-ups on, you’ve got everything you need for a complete upper body workout.” The six units I tested all offer potential benefit for those looking to improve shoulder, back, arm, and abdominal strength. Some of them offer advanced options for experienced users, while others offer options for people who can’t do a single pull-up yet.

Footnotes: 1. First, there are wall or ceiling-mounted varieties. These are incredibly sturdy (and capable of handling the dynamic action of a kipping pull-up) because they must be mounted to the studs (wooden structural beams underneath drywall) or joists (overhead wooden beams above ceiling). The Stud Bar is a highly acclaimed example of this type of bar. We chose not to test these because we were aiming for simplicity of setup for the average user; thus, we didn’t want to involve a bunch of tools. Also, for folks who are renting, we didn’t want to recommend a product that landlords wouldn’t allow. If, on the other hand, you have a garage or basement and don’t mind doing a bit of drilling, I would highly recommend these sturdy units. The second type of unit is the telescoping pull-up bar. Historically, this was the first offering in the doorway category, and it is a very simple/no frills product. Here’s the well-reviewed Big Mike’s bar. We saw several problems with these types of bars. First, they need to be drilled into the doorframe for safe use. While some of them claim to use drill-free, suction-type connection, beware of safety issues. Here’s an example of the suction failing while in use. Secondly, in order to put them high enough on the door for the user’s feet to get off the ground, they must be installed near the top of the doorframe where it’s easy to bonk your head when doing a pull-up. Finally, they don’t offer any variation in grip position. The third type of unit is the free-standing pull-up bar. This type of unit can be really nice and also include dip bars and abdominal exercise options, but they are large pieces of stand-alone equipment that eat up space and typically cost more than $100. Plus, they also require a more involved setup process. The Stamina 1690 Power Tower is a really popular and affordable example of this type of pull-up unit and includes dip/ab options as well. The fourth type of pull-up bar is the home-built type of unit. These can either be mounted to ceilings or walls using gas pipe flanges, metal pipe, etc, or they can be built in a backyard. While these tend to be sturdy and affordable, they obviously require some handyman skills and a significant investment of time. Here’s a tutorial on building an at-home unit if you’re so inclined. The fifth type is the door frame type, which we covered extensively due to their ease of installation and use. Jump back.
