When I first purchased P90X, I wanted to do it right by also purchasing the P90X Pull-Up Bar. Beachbody didn’t have the Peak Results Package that they do now, so I had to get them separate. The P90X Chin-Up Bar actually arrived first, and I wasted no time in putting it together. The directions made it very easy to assemble, and about 5 minutes later I was ready to hang up the bar in my doorway to try it out. The great thing about the P90X Pull-Up Bar is that you don’t have to mount it into the wall. Instead, it fits most doorways (24″ – 32″), just as long as you have a frame and about an inch trim. It fit in my doorway just fine. It’s also important to know the total length of the bar, which is 41.25″.
Another great thing about the P90X bar is all the different grips, which become important as you do workouts like Chest & Back, Legs & Back, and Back & Biceps. Most pull-up bars don’t contain all the grips the P90X Bar does, which makes it hard to do certain exercises properly. There are actually 6 different grip positions, and you work different back muscles with each grip. As I’ve said before, I don’t think there is a better all-around back workout than pull-ups, and is the sole reason why I have a ripped back like I do today. I’ve even had people tell me I have a 6 pack in my back!
You might now be worrying that you might weigh too much for the P90X Pull Up Bar. Well, put your worries at ease, because the bar is made of heavy gauge steel and holds up to 300lbs. My best friend, who was a college football lineman, used to do the workouts with me, and he didn’t break the bar once!
The P90X Pull-Up Bar is one that I highly recommend if you want to do P90X properly. I’ve had mine for almost 2 years, and it’s holding up just fine, and you all know how much I work out. If you want to develop the back like the rest of your body, then you need to make sure that you have the proper bar to do the pull-ups. Aren’t you ready to get a ripped back?
