Holy fuck, no more knee bends, no more awkward pull ups, and more grips available. Screw the Iron Gym, I’m too tall for that shit. So you can do all the basic stuff, like pull ups, chin ups, wide grip and narrow grip, as well as pushups and dips, and even sit ups. But I’m not here to talk about work out programs, I am here to talk about the Elevated pull up bar.
So the bar comes in pieces that you have to build. The red bars are all very high quality and fit together nicely. The only issue is the screws that come with it. They do feel a bit cheap, and I have heard that some people were missing some screws. I didn't have that issue, but I do see that the screws are cheap. They don’t have that heft to it that they should. So after I put all the pieces together, I was a bit worried whether or not it would hold my weight. It is supposed to hold up to 300 lbs. After I did the first scary pull up, it felt incredibly solid! I was pretty shocked nothing creaked or rattled. Doing pull ups on this is almost like doing it at the gym from a rack.
Dips are fucking awesome on this too. The extra height really allows you to dip low to get that 90 degree elbow bend. As for pushups, eh I’m more of a floor person when it comes to pushups. I mean it works, but it just feels too strange for me to do a pushup off of a bar. The GoFit Elevated bar comes with a whole booklet on all the different positions available to you.
Now for specifics. Will this fit your doorway? My door has a 2” trim, and a 6” door way width. The thickness of my door’s trimmings are around 1 inch, so it’s very minimal, yet the GoFit has no issue gripping it/ There are three adjustable settings for the plastic black bar that will adjust to different trim sizes, up to 6” I believe.
So to summarize, the GoFit Elevated Chin Up Station is great for people who are taller, and fits on most doorways. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to save on a gym membership and work out on their own accord.
