Ultimate Body Press Ceiling Mounted Pull Up Bar
This is a solid, durable and functional pull up bar with an ergonomic design and a powder coat finish for mounting on the ceiling by Ultimate Body Press, that is known for their high quality, functional and nice looking products at lower prices.
The pull-up bar is rated 4.2 out of 5 stars at the time of this review by 158 customers. Ultimate Body Press Pull-up Bar gives you a total mounting flexibility with an optimal 20-inch parallel grip spacing. It is designed for fitting the 16-inch joists and 24-inch rafters measured “on-centre”.
You get the patented 14-inch reversible risers that fit both the floor and ceiling joists. So the first position is where it fits the floor with joists are 16 inches apart on centre. And the second position is where it fits ceiling joists that are 24 inches on centre. In the box, you will get all the hardware including the 3/8″ x 3″ lag screws, instructions and template so you can mount it easily on your ceiling or floor.
Very dense foam grips with three grip positions are good for letting you work on more muscles during longer sessions as your hands will feel comfortable. There will be less strain on your joints and body when you’re doing pull-ups thanks to its ergonomic design. You’ll be targeting the specific muscles you want with a natural grip positioning on the angled bars and the optimal 20 inches of spacing on the parallel grips.
If you intend to use it outdoors in your backyard etc., the very cold and very hot conditions (sun) may not be good for the rubber handle pads and you may need to replace them quicker than normal. You may want to wrap the foam grips with bike tape if you want it to last longer.
It hangs about 15.5 inches from the ceiling and there will be plenty of space even if you are very tall. The user weight it can support is at least 250 pounds and you shouldn’t worry about security if you weigh less than that as this is a well-built pull-up bar. You’ll probably want to install this in your garage like most users and need to find the joists on the ceiling or floor and drill the holes, then the rest is easier. You’ll have the support of Amazon’s great customer service, US-based tech support of Ultimate Body Press and they promise 100% satisfaction.
