Advantages

  • My partner is a rock climber who relies on the strength of his core muscles a lot. While he prefers either going to an indoor climbing gym or to actually be outdoors doing real rock climbing, he does recommend having a chin-up/pull-up bar at home, for beginner climbers. Strengthening your arms and core muscles can be done slowly and safely with the ProSource Heavy-Duty Easy Gym Doorway Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar.  And, that is true even for non-climbers.
  • The ProSource Heavy-Duty Easy Gym Doorway Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar offers a lot of options for arm strength exercise positions.
  • There is no need for you to arm yourself with an entire garage’s worth of tools. Just slip it on your door frame, and let your weight leverage keep it in place.

Disadvantages

  • A lot of door frames nowadays are made quite thin, either for aesthetic reasons, or probably for practicality’s sake. I don’t recommend setting up the ProSource Heavy-Duty Easy Gym Doorway Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar on door frames less than 32 inches thick. , unless you decide to permanently mount it, and unless the wall and door frame is sturdy enough. Although the bar may hold up to 300 lbs., you still have to consider that the wall and the door frame support both you and the ProSource Heavy-Duty Easy Gym Doorway Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar.
  • Because the ProSource Heavy-Duty Easy Gym Doorway Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar is not permanently mounted, over time, your wall can get scratches, unless you are able to find a way to provide ample cushioning. So much for pristine-white walls.
  • Assembling the ProSource Heavy-Duty Easy Gym Doorway Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar can be a challenge for some people, since the set-up instructions come in a one-pager of diagrams. Although some find it easy to just look at the diagrams, it would still be better if worded instructions would complement the diagrams.
