Iron Core Athletics Wall Mount Pull Up Bar Review

The ideal tool for performing an intense upper body workout in the comfort of your own home, the Iron Core Athletics Wall Mount Pull Up Bar is both affordable and strong. This heavy-duty wall-mounted chin bar is a key component in crafting a sculpted physique using only the weight of your own body.

The re-enforced poly coated steel and extra strong mounting brackets ensure that the pull-up bar will last even during the most intense workouts. In fact, the pull-up bar is crafted from industrial strength materials, similar to the materials used in professional gyms and CrossFit boxes, and is designed for heavy use on a regular basis.

Beyond the core strength of the Iron Core Athletics Pull Up Bar, there is also a level of comfort found in the padded hand grips. These three different pairs of dense foam handles provide flexibility in your personal workout and allow for narrow, medium, and wide-grip locations.

The variety of grips allow you to perform a range of workouts, using only the pull-up bar, and work on your arms, shoulders, back, lats, hands, and even your chest on just a single piece of equipment. Even if you are a rookie who struggles to perform three pull ups, this chin-up bar will have you performing varied and exciting repetitions every day to help you increase your upper body strength.

The pull-up bar comes with easy-to-follow installation instructions, and mounting brackets for mounting to concrete, block walls, and wood beams. The extra strong mounting brackets each feature four mounting holes for a total of eight mounting holes rather than the more common total of four mounting holes found on similar products. Once mounted, the 12” distance between the wall and the bracket provides ample space to get started and perform your first workout.
