The bar has a much wider grip, allowing for a much wider range of movements. The expanded length and angled handles allow users to perform a variety of exercises, even enabling them to focus on specific muscles. This versatility also allows you to add more challenges to pull-up type exercises through different angles and grips.
While you will primarily use the bar for pull-ups and curl-up work, you can also use it for abdominal and core work, or to anchor resistance tubing and TRX-type suspension trainers.
A powder-coated steel construction ensures long-lasting durability. You won’t have to worry about the bar getting nicked or chipped, so it will maintain its professional appearance for years to come.
A slight knurling on the angled handles provides a more secure grip. The bar itself extends 12” from the wall, keeping the user safely away from it.
How to Use the Bar
When you’re ready to begin your exercise, simply grip and go! The user grips the bar with his/her palms facing out toward the wall and pulls. With a narrow grip, hands should be even with the shoulders. But with a wider grip, hands should be moved out from there. Switch hands so they face you for a curl up option to focus on bicep work.
Anchoring and mounting hardware is not included due to varying surfaces. Please see the following recommendations:
- When bolting to concrete, use a concrete anchor bolt at least 2-1/2”L x 1/2” dia.
- When bolting to wooden studs, use a lag screw at least 2-1/2"L x 1/2” dia.
- For any unit that requires installation to the wall or floors, we highly recommend using a licensed contractor for installation.
