Buying Guide for Chin-up Bars
Before deciding which chin-up bar to choose, you should consider a series of characteristics in order to buy the best bar for your home or gym. First of all, one of the most important aspects is the available space, since it should be adapted to your door gym to allow you to do your workouts comfortably and safely. To do this, you should measure the width of your door and compare it with the data provided in the product sheets of each door gym. Keep in mind that some bars offer you the possibility to do your exercises on the floor to increase the variety of possible exercises.
In addition, safety is also a fundamental aspect, as you work in suspension, a failure can cause you to fall and hit yourself. Therefore, make sure that the maximum load of the bar you purchase supports your weight.
How to install the chin-up bar on the wall
The installation of chin-up bars is simple for most of the models available. Since there are different types of bars, installation may vary from one model to another. If your door gym is attached to the door frame without drilling, you should start by mounting it with the help of a screwdriver. Then, you will have to adjust the bar to the door frame so that it is well hooked and does not come loose during the workout. You can then remove it without damaging your door frame. On the other hand, if the bar you purchase is a Pull Up-Chin bar, you will have to place it taking into account the width of the door so that it fits snugly. To do this, some bars are adjustable and give you the option of attaching with screws or not attaching the bar to remove it after your workout.
You can use your chin-up bar to do a variety of different exercises such as pull-ups, chin-ups, dips and different abdominal exercises making it an ideal multi-functional machine for upper body training.
Exercises with chin-up bars
There are a multitude of exercises you can perform with your chin-up bar to train your upper body.Pull-up: this is the most common exercise and is performed by placing yourself suspended in the air with your knuckles facing you and your hands at the same distance as your shoulders. Then, with your back slightly arched, place your chin on the bar and slowly lower yourself down. Chin-up: this exercise is similar to the chin-up but your knuckles are facing outwards. This way, you work your biceps more. Leg lifts: to do this exercise you need to have enough space so you don't hurt yourself. You have to start hanging from the bar and tense your core to slowly raise your straight legs. Once you reach waist height, lower them down and slowly raise them back up. If you find this difficult, try raising your knees by bringing both knees up towards your waist. Make sure you are in control of the speed at which you raise and lower your legs to do the exercise more effectively. Toes to bar: for this exercise you will also need to have enough space to do it or your bar can be placed close to the ground to do this exercise lying down. Start by holding yourself with your arms outstretched and with your hands gripping the fixed bar and leave your feet in suspension. Start swinging to gain momentum and raise your feet until your toes or the top of your feet touch the bar.
In addition, there are many variations of these exercises that you can include in your routine to train your upper and middle body.
