Pull-Up Bar Question
Pull-Up Bar Question
1/31/13 4:47 AM
I am getting ready to start The Asylum. My question is about the pull-up bar. In my workout area, my doors are set close to walls. Judging by the photo, do you think a pull-up bar would fit? There is 5" from the inside of the door to the wall (right side).

Thanks for your advise.

I think you should be good, I use the Iron Gym pull up bar and installed on the door it does not pass the door frame, and the door I use it on is pretty close to a corner just like your is. The biggest thing is to look and see how far the bar goes past the door frame when installed, most of the ones that I have seen don't go much past the frame itself or at all.

Yes. I have a pullup bar that is marketed as "wide grip" and it goes only a couple inches beyond the frame.
Standard grip fits the doorframe perfectly.
