12 Days of CrossFit: Pull up Bars


For our final day of this special CrossFit gift guide blog series, we are looking at in home pull up bars. Pull ups are something many of us are working toward, and everyone can continuously improve on. Also, bars are great to have in house for grip work. An easy way to get in some extra work at home is to grab an in home pull up bar.

Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar
This bar is great for those living in apartments or who don’t want to put holes in the wall. It uses leverage to hold against the doorway so there are no screws and no damage to door, and installs in seconds. You can also take it off the doorway to use for dips and push ups. ($30)

Big Mike’s Fitness Deluxe Doorway Bar
Simple, clean and non-intrusive, this bar is a minimalist option. It may be limiting for closing doors, but is easy to transport and doesn’t take away too much from your decorating aesthetics. ($30)

Ultimate Body Press Upper Body Workout Bar
For the more heavy duty guys and gals, this is a great option for a more permanent fixture. 38 inches wide allows for multiple grip options. 16 inch wide mounts fit on most regularly spaced studs. ($60)

Rogue Fitness Individual Pull-Up System
If you have a place where you want to do pull-ups, but don’t want to commit to anything permanent this is a great option. Utilizing the same pair of 1.5″ wide 16 foot straps that come standard on the Rogue Rings, setup and teardown takes mere seconds. The bar is hand built in the US from steel and coated using the same multi-stage process that gives the Rogue Rings their distinctive and now famous feel. ($72)
