NFT: Iron Gym Doorway Pullup Bar Review?

DC Gmen Fan : 11/12/2017 12:37 pm
So my neighborhood playground used to have a bar that was great to go to pullups on, but that has since been damaged so I just bought the Iron Gym Doorway pullup bar. Says it's good up to 300 lbs; I'm 205 and I feel wobbly on it. Anyone use this and does it tend to hold up over time?
never really liked that one

as it did not last and not durable.

the one I have now have these square/rectangular pads to protect the door frame and stabilize. Can't remember the name but will look later. Bought it at Sports Authority (out of business).

very stable, and you get 3 grips, wide overhand, standard overhand, and verticle/parallel. You also use as an elevated pushup bar.

the problem I had with the Iron gym was that the foam wore out fast and I had to shim it with stuff, functional but not stable and friendly to the door trim.

Like this one so much I might order a backup at 40 bucks.
