The doorway pull up bar is great because of its portability and sturdiness. I got a nice doorway pull up bar for Christmas, and I gave it my full review in this four minute video:
Doorway Pull Up Bar Review by John Sifferman
Like I said, the greatest thing about this doorway pull up bar is its portability. I wouldn’t buy into all the promises they make during the infomercials, but this is a nice doorway pull up bar for its intended purpose – pullups. Do not use this for pushups, situps, or dips – it wasn’t designed for them and could be harmful by placing your joints at awkward angles under load. Also, don’t expect to be able to do kipping pullups with this either.
I would recommend anyone weighing less than 250 lbs to get this doorway pull up bar, just make sure to check your door frame for damage before using it. They can be ordered at Amazon.com here:
