Pull-up bars for every situation

Are you looking for a pull-up bar for indoor or outdoor use? For the ceiling or the wall? Or do you need an individual color or size? Thanks to our own manufacture, we can fulfill these wishes for you.

What is the best pull up bar for me?

You have a lot of space and want to get the most out of your training? Then you take the Kipping pullup rod for wall mounting and be prepared for dynamic kipping pullups and muscle ups. 

If all walls are to remain free, simply mount the Pull-up bar for ceiling mounting. With this variant you can also train everything completely unrestricted except for muscle-ups.

If you don’t have that much space and still want to train at home, maybe in the living room, then it’s best to choose the Mini pull-up bar. Perfect for all strength exercises and if you have hung them over a round, you can even do kipping pullups – great.

With resistance bands and a cable pull / lat pull all variants can be perfectly combined.

Where can I attach the pull-up bar?

Depending on the situation, we offer pull-up bars in different sizes. But you can use the tilting pull-up bar, Ceiling pull-up bar as well as the Mount the mini pull-up bar on the wall or ceiling. Even mounting where the pull-up bar is supposed to be mounted upside down is no problem. 

What is the diameter of the pull-up bar?

34mm has established itself as a common and popular diameter for pull-up bars and racks.

Suitable pull-up bar for the door frame?

We would actually recommend a different pull-up bar due to the risk of injury (bar slipping out of the door frame) and permanent damage to the door frame. You can easily over a Mimi pull-up bar hang almost every door and have a good height plus security against a clamped pull-up bar in the door frame.

What exercises can I do on the pull-up bar?

As is well known, the selection is endless, but the most important exercises are probably the pull-ups: pull-ups with chest contact, muscle ups, toes to bar, leg raises, hanging knee ups, windshield wipers, around the world, L-Hang, Bodyweight Row, Chin Ups, Weighted Pullups, Front and Back Levers, and Skin the Cat.

What abdominal exercises are there on the pull-up bar?

The four most common abdominal exercises on the pull-up bar are:

  • Leg Raises
  • Hanging Knee Ups
  • Toes to Bar
  • Windshield Wipers

The leg raises  is a very simple, but not necessarily easy, exercise. You hang on the pull-up bar with your legs stretched out and lift your legs up to 90 degrees. Hold this position for a moment and then slowly lower yourself. Do 1-3 sets of 8-12 reps and you’ll see where the load comes in.

The hanging knee ups are, if you will, a variant of leg raises. You hang from the pull-up bar with your arms straight and bend your knees 90 degrees while bringing your knees up as high as possible. Again, do 1-3 sets of 8-12 reps and hold your knees at the top for a moment.

In the Toes to Bar (hanging sit-up) you hang on the pull-up bar with your body fully extended and bring your toes to the bar between your hands without bending your arms or legs. Again, you can do 1-3 sets of 8-12 reps.

The windshield wipers (windscreen wipers) is an exercise that almost goes into calistenics. Holding onto the pull-up bar with both hands (hands close together and arms straight), now use your abs to raise your torso up so it’s parallel to the floor. Your legs are now close together and bent in a way that allows you to rotate your lower body left and right out of your core. Attention: This exercise is really demanding – approach it slowly.

Pull-up bar possible without a wall?

Many do not want or are not allowed to drill into the walls and ceilings of their homes. This is exactly why we have a Free-standing pull-up station on which you can also use the barbell can work. If you want to do dynamic pull-ups such as kipping pull-ups, we recommend the station with weights, to prevent wobbling Standsacks to weigh down. Alternatively, you can also attach yourself to the floor with two screws.

Is there a pull up bar with support?

As a very practical option, we recommend resistance bands if you do some exercises or you want support to learn muscle-ups. However, if you need even more control because you might be recovering from an injury, we would recommend our chin-up – and Dipstation (Supported) recommend.

Do you have custom pull up bars?

Since we are a manufacturer in the EU and do not source our Gym series from Asia, we can implement almost any wish that can be combined with physics for you. You can simply send us an e-mail to banane@affenhand.de with your specific wishes – almost all RAL colors are also possible.

Which pull-up bar with cable?

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter whether you want to use the mini, ceiling or kipping pull bar or whether you already have a pull-up bar. With the cable pulley for everywhere from Spud Inc. you can simply retrofit a cable pull.

Which pull-up bar with a low ceiling?

Of course, ideally you’re looking for another position, but after reading this question you need a solution for that too. It is particularly important that there is enough space between the ceiling and the pull-up bar. So the height from chin to crown must fit in between, otherwise you will find it difficult to do pull-ups. It’s better to hang the bar a little lower and do pull-ups with your legs drawn up. This is actually a nice exercise for the legs. You can also do the other exercises such as toes to bar, holding exercises or pulling exercises as well as load pull on the pull-up bar on a pull-up bar hanging lower down.

Can I buy or finance a pull-up bar from you on account?

Yes, we offer the option of purchasing our products on account via the payment services Klarna and PayPal. If you just want to spread the costs a bit, you can simply finance the purchase price with Klarna. Not all options are available outside of Germany.

At what height should I hang my pull-up bar?

Caution, the optimal height of your pull-up bar does not depend solely on your height. You need to consider your height and arm length. In our experience, the bar is optimally adjusted when you can just about reach on tiptoe. Really try to adjust the bar so that you don’t have to jump to the bar. However, you should be able to swing completely freely without your toes touching the ground, otherwise you can really hurt yourself if you get caught. If you share the pull-up bar with several people, it is of no use and the bar can be set up for the tallest person. Everyone else then has to jump or use a stool, but if the bar is lower, the tallest one won’t be able to use it.
