ant to add some burly beef to your back?

The chin up bar shows you how.

Chinning Bars

Chinning Bars come in all shapes, styles and flavors - from the wall mounted variety to the portable bar.

But doesn't a decent bar have to cost you a fortune?

Nope. Not at all. An excellent bar can cost you less than a family-size steakhouse pizza and easily get the job done.

For example, my bar hangs in a garage doorway and cost me twenty bucks. I've had it over 15 years and despite some wear and tear and the odd fleck of rust - it can get awful cold during UK winters - she has given me unfailing service...which only goes to show, you don't have to spend big to buy quality.

Let's check out some of the options.

Chinning Bar Options:

    1. Wall mounted.

    If you've room on your garage or home gym wall, this is a terrific choice. Why? Fixed to your wall, the bars are available for immediate use.

    Like the doorway bar, the wall mounted option comes in different flavors. Some are fixed or have the flexibility to alter your grip, and some even have adjustable arms. As with any strength training equipment, I suggest you go with what you can comfortably afford - but remember: your purchase, if treated right, will last you a lifetime.

    But what if wall space is at a premium?

    2. Free standing.

    A free standing bar gives you the convenient bonus of portability. Coupled with dipping bars (many free standing chinning bars have this added extra), you get the best of both worlds. Again, go with what your wallet or pursestrings will allow (buy quality and you ensure your workouts will be safe and super-productive).

    3. Homemade.

    Does a power drill panic you? Does DIY make you as jumpy as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs? If not, then you might want to consider making a homemade chin up bar. There are many excellent resources online where you can get details on how to make your own chin-up bar. The cost? Your time and some lumbar.
