One of the main reasons why people choose this type of bar rather than one of the many alternatives (as covered on this website) is because of the long term value. This type of bar is much sturdier than other versions and it really is the closest you will get to gym-standard in the comfort of your own home. Those of you who have used freestanding or over door bars know that these are prone to wobbling and – especially in the case of over door systems – falling down mid-exercise.

Obviously if you have a dedicated space or room that you use for working out, this will be the perfect addition. However, they are versatile enough that they can be placed anywhere that has the space, turning your bedroom, garage or even basement into a work out zone.

People who are truly serious about making pull ups and chin ups a part of their regular exercise schedule should get mountable bars. It doesn’t even really matter whether you choose to mount it on a wall or a ceiling, as this is down to your own individual preference.

Before you buy one though, take a look at some of the helpful advice below concerning the things you should consider before parting with your hard earned cash.

Choose a Suitable Model

Always ensure that the mountable bar you purchase is suitable for the area or room you want to install it in. Although this may seem like perfect common sense, you’d be amazed at how many people simply pick the cheapest or first one they come across. If you have a very limited amount of space you should stick to one with very small bars. On the other hand, if you have a large area set aside for workouts it is best to invest in a larger bar as this will give you more room and versatility for workouts.

Purchase a High Quality Bar

Remember that this is a piece of exercise equipment that you will be using to pull your full body weight up with, so it needs to be safe and sturdy. As well as damaging your ceiling or wall, a cheap and badly constructed mountable pull up bar could damage your body. This is the complete opposite to what you are aiming to do when buying a bar in the first place. Most pull-up bars should last a good number of years, depending of course on how often you use them.

Do Research

I would hazard a guess that the reason you have clicked through to this website is because that is what you are actually doing; researching before buying. Take the time to follow the advice of people who have owned bars in the past and read online reviews. You can safely assume that if a lot of people are raving about a particular bar or brand, that it is a good one and you will have a similarly positive experience if you purchase it. Likewise, if many people are complaining about problems with a particular bar, you will in all probability have the same kinds of problems with it.
