How to Choose a Wall Pull-Up Bar?

A pull-up bar is the simplest yet most effective tool for exercising the upper half of your body, especially your back muscles. Depending on grip options of a particular bar, you can focus on other muscle groups. Because they are affixed by screws, wall pull-up bars will carry a greater weight than door bars. Another advantage is that you can place the pull-up bar in a height that is the most ideal for you.

To attach a wall pull-up bar, you’ll need a drill and wall plugs. Make sure to attach the pull-up bar to a wall with sound structure. If you have decided to buy a wall pull-up bar, but don’t know how to choose between various models, don’t worry. This guide was created exactly for this reason – to walk you through the process and to make sure you know what to focus on.

What is the ideal weight limit?

The wall pull-up bar must be sufficiently robust to be able to carry your weight. Most of the time, this is not a problem, because the bars are firmly screwed to the wall. However, if you want to include dumbbells or vin-bells in you exercise routine, you should definitely keep their weight in mind when picking out a pull-up bar’s weight limit.

Height and distance from the wall

The main advantage of wall pull-up bars is that they can be attached in exactly the height you need. That means you should place your bar in a height that allows you to comfortably reach for it and exercise without bending your knees (which may be a problem for taller people when exercising with a door pull-up bar). Once the bar is attached, it cannot be further moved. That’s why it is best suited for personal training only. The bar should be placed in sufficient distance from the wall so that you are not limited in your movements in any way.

What purpose will your bar serve?

Wall pull-up bars can have various grip types. It’s up to you to choose from the available options. If you also want to tone hard-to-reach muscles, make sure to select a pull-up bar with lateral grips.

Do you have wall bars at home? Try a pull-up bar that can be attached to them.
