Door Way Pull/Chin Up Bar

Does anyone know of a GOOD door way pull/chin up bar? I haven't really looked into them & was wondering if any of you guys have used one that you would recommend.

Thanks!

A friend of mine has one of those "perfect pull up" bars and I tried it out once when I was at his house. It seemed very stable and handled my weight pretty easily (~185lbs). The only thing I didn't like about it was that the average door frame is not wide enough to do a proper pull up, so you're kind of forced to do a pretty narrow grip.

the P90x website has one that is made a little different that allows you to do wide pull ups.

I bought the Iron Gym one from Target and the only bad part is that it rests on the door frame where I would grab on for a wide pullup. Otherwise, I was 196 and it was plenty sturdy. Takes a little getting use to having to curl your legs back so you don't reach the floor.

The one through P90X's website is a good bar, but it's a rip off at their price. I bought one from Dick's sporting goods for about $40 that's basically the same as the P90X one, and it works great.

i had a everlast pull up multi-grip and it worked great but left indentions in the door frame. The perfect pull up is screwed into my laundry room door and I weigh 210 and it holds up just fine. It creaks every now and then, it also moves lower so that you can do body weight row/pull ups. and comes with ab straps and the twisting handles. Perfect pull up FTW.

Got it on woot for 19.99 with everything.

I have the one from Walmart. It was $20-$30 bucks, and I think it supports up to 230 lbs.

I have the p90x one but since I am 6'5" I can't use it because my knees are on the floor when I hang with my arms fully extended.

That's a pretty good deal. The Iron Gym is only $6 cheaper and doesn't give you the wide grip option like that one.
