Best Pull Up Bars of 2017 – Buyer’s Guide & Reviews

We all know what a pull up bar is and we all know what to do with them. The problem is not knowing what to do with these things or how to use them. The problem is finding the right pull up bar for you. The best pull up bar is one that will serve all of your upper body training needs without question.

What should I look for when buying a pull up bar? What are the different types of pull up bars? What are the best options to go with? These are all legitimate questions, ones which we will help you answer. We have got a whole lot to cover so let’s get to it!

Summary: The Best Pull Up Bars

What To Look For When Buying A Pull Up Bar

Pull up bars are usually not that expensive, which is not always the case, but generally speaking, you are looking at no more than 100 dollars. That being said, you don’t want to waste money, so here are some of the most important things to look for when buying a pull up bar.

Grip Positions

Something that you need to pay attention to when buying a pull up bar is how many grip positions it allows for. The most basic pull up bars will have one simple bar, most of which will have both a narrow and wide grip. Some more advanced pull up bars will also have neutral grip bars for a wider array of exercises.

The most advanced pull up bars may have something called a monkey bar style grip, which allows for more than 5 different grip positions. Which one of these you get will depend on your needs and how many different kinds of upper body exercises you want to do. Keep in mind that more grip possibilities will also usually mean a higher price level. Something we will discuss later on is the power tower, also known as a free standing pull up bar, which is an item that usually has many different grip positions.

Grip

Another important thing to look out for before you make a purchase is what the actual grip is like. You want to get a bar that has either foam grips, rubber grips, or a knurled texture. This will ensure that you don’t slip off and crash to the ground in the middle of doing pull ups.

Keep in mind that a knurled bar is the best for grip and is the most durable too, but they are hard and may cause calluses. On the other hand, rubber or foam grips are much softer and more comfortable to hang on to, but they are also much less durable and tend to crack or rip right off the bar.

Weight Limit

Every pull up bar and every type of pull up bar in the world is going to have a specific weight limit. Cheaper pull up bars will be able to support up to 250 or 300 pounds, while more expensive and durable models can hold up to 600 or even 800 pounds of weight. Keep in mind that the weight limit is going to depend on the materials used in the construction of the pull up bar, as well as the specific type of pull up bar that you have (different types of pull up bars are discussed below).

Mounting Requirements

Just like many of the other deciding factors that make a good pull up bar, the mounting requirements will largely depend on the type of pull up bar that you get. Some hold onto the frame of your door, some screw into a wall or ceiling, some screw into rafters, and some are fully free standing devices. To clarify a little bit let’s now talk about the different types of pull up bars that are available for purchase.

The Different Types Of Pull Up Bars

There are 5 main types of pull up bars that you can choose from, each of which has their advantages and disadvantages. Let’s go over them now.

1. Doorway Pull Up Bar

The doorway pull up bar is perhaps the most simple and straightforward type that you can get. This type requires no mounting hardware or any real mounting at all for that matter. There is a piece that rests on top of your door frame as well as a counter balance piece to keep it in place. These pull up bars are usually pretty cheap and have limited capabilities as well as a fairly low weight limit.

These make for good options if you want a quick pull up workout, if you don’t want to damage your home with mounting gear, and if you want to be able to move the pull up bar around from one door frame to another. While they may be limited in their capabilities, they do usually cost less than many other options. Keep in mind that some doorway mounted pull up bars do have a tendency to slip down, thus posing a certain risk to your physical wellbeing.

2. Ceiling Mounted Pull Up Bar

The second type of pull up bar that you can consider is the ceiling mounted pull up bar. The obvious benefit here is that they are permanently mounted in one spot on the ceiling, thus providing for adequate support and weight bearing capabilities, much more than a doorway pull up bar. These things tend to have a decent weight limit, they tend to be strong and durable, they can come with multiple grip positions, and they are usually quite comfortable to us as well.

The drawback with the ceiling mounted version is that you do actually have to mount it with hardware, you need to pick a good spot because moving it once mounted is going to be a pain, and you also need to make sure that your ceiling can support the bar and your weight. These models tend to be a little more expensive than the doorway models, but they also usually have more strength and workout options as well.

One thing to keep in mind is that you want to make sure that the mounting bars are fairly long in order to give your head good clearance and prevent your head from hitting the ceiling. Also keep in mind where the mounting brackets are located and how far apart they are. You need to get a model where the mounts are spaced the same as your ceiling rafters in order to properly secure it.

3. Wall Mounted Pull Up Bar

The wall mounted pull up bar is quite similar to the ceiling mounted model, with the only real difference being the spot where it is mounted. Wall mounted pull up bars tend to be quite durable, they have a fairly high weight limit, and they also tend to have a fair number of grip positions to work with. The wall mounted pull up bar is going to be a little heavier than the ceiling mounted version because there are some extra pieces required to transition from the wall mounting to the actual pull up bar.

Moreover, you need to be careful when buying this type of pull up bar because you need to make sure that the studs in your wall are strong enough to support it, not to mention that they need to be spaced the proper distance apart to accommodate the mount. One thing to look out for when buying this type of pull up bar is how far it sits from the wall it is mounted to. You need enough clearance to do a wide variety of workouts without hitting the wall all of the time.

Moreover, the wall mounted version needs to be built very strong, more so than a ceiling mounted version, because the way it is mounted puts a whole lot of stress on the mounting system and your wall. This is a good option to go with if you have found a spot to permanently locate the pull up bar, and if you aren’t afraid of drilling some holes.

4. Joist Mounted Pull Up Bar

The fourth main type of pull up bar is the joist mounted pull up bar, which is quite similar to the ceiling mounted version. These tend to have all of the same capabilities as a wall or ceiling mounted pull up bar. They tend to be quite strong and well built, they have fairly high weight limits, and they usually have multiple grip stations too. The price of the joist mounted pull up bar is going to be around the same as the wall or ceiling mounted versions.

Where they really differ is how they are mounted. The joist mounted pull up bar, as the name implies, needs to be mounted to the joist or rafter of a ceiling, whereas the ceiling mounted model can simply be mounted on a flat ceiling. The joist mounted pull up bar needs to have a well exposed joist to mount, not to mention that the joist needs to be very solid to support your weight. These make for great options if you have a garage or some kind of partly unfinished room with joists or ceiling rafters.

5. Free Standing Pull Up Bar aka Power Tower

The final type of pull up bar you can choose to go with is the free standing version, often referred to as a power tower. In essence, these usually aren’t really pull up bars but are in fact a full workout station that just happens to include a pull up bar. If you want a fully comprehensive total body workout, the free standing model is without a doubt the best way to go.

They are usually comprised of a metal frame with a multi-purpose and multi-grip pull up bar. As well, they may also have push up bars, foot pads for sit ups, dip bars, a plyometric box, and a knee lift/leg lift station as well. Different power tower models may have some or all of the above workout stations.

Keep in mind that these are by far the most expensive type of pull up bar to go with because they usually come with so much extra, not to mention that it just takes more material to build them. However in our opinion, they are the best type of pull up bar that you can buy and if you have a little bit of extra cash they are well worth the inflated price tag.

These things excel at giving you a full body workout, plus they don’t need to be mounted anywhere either. You can simply assemble it anywhere in your home where there is room. One thing to keep in mind with these models is that you want to look for one with a fairly wide base and long feet for stability. You don’t want these things to tip over in the middle of your workout, so a good base is essential.

A Cautionary Tale About Pull Up Bars

The one and only precaution that we feel the need to warn you about is about mounting. This problem does not apply to free standing power towers, which is a huge bonus. Anyway, mounting these things can be kind of tricky. Whatever type of pull up bar you get, just make sure that it is stable, secure, and well mounted, because you don’t want to come crashing down to the ground in the middle of your routine.

It is always wise to read some reviews about mounting the specific model you are looking at. If you have a doorway model, make sure that it is highly rated for stability. Also, if you have a wall, ceiling, or joist mounted model, make sure that you are using the proper hardware, and moreover that wherever you are mounting it is more than strong enough to handle the load.

This is a very basic pull up bar that fits between virtually any door frame, is quite affordable, and will definitely allow you to do pull ups all day long without any trouble at all.

One of the things that we really like about the design of the j/fit Pull Up Bar is that it features a telescoping rod.

There is no other hardware required to do this.

Once it is extended out far enough it will provide a secure non-slip fit, plus it even comes with rubber stoppers for slippery metal doors. The telescoping feature also allows this thing to fit in both narrow and wide doorways.

Moreover, if you are worried about the bar coming down, you can always use the brackets that come with it in order to drill holes in the door frame and securely attach it using the mounting brackets. This will ensure that it never comes down.
