There are two types of Traction Bars: Those installed on a door frame and those that hang on a wall. Those that attach to a door are fixed by pressure, So they are removable and require no drilling.
To Choose between these 2 types of bards, you can use 5 criteria: Solidity, Versatility, Compactness, Ergonomic, Grip, Ease of assemble/disassembly.
There are two factors to consider: your weight and the maximum load (bar + disk or dumbbells) that the bench can support.
The rigidity of the bar and resistance of the frame are determinants. You therefore need to think about the weight the different models can support (the maximum load generally varies between 130kg and 150kg).
For bars without fixation, good grip is essential: the bar’s hard-wearing, solid rubbers mean you can train in safety while protecting your home
Choosing a traction bar is based on the number of muscle groups you want to work. So take a close look at the number of possible grips and exercises on offer: pulls, pumps, dips, working the shoulders and arms.
For more complete workouts, choose a bar with a wall mount. More stable and more robust, it lets you increase the number of exercises and weigh yourself down with a vest or belt.
3. Compact Design
Some traction bars are easy to store, are flexible and fold down against the wall.
This not insignificant advantage is practical to save space!
4. Ergonomic Grip
Consider testing the comfort of different bars.
Those with strong, thick foam will be more comfortable, especially if you do lots of different exercises.
They offer you a better grip.
5. Easy Setting Up/Taking Down
Bars that are installed on a door frame are very practical since they require no drilling, so no tools.
The pressure attachment system makes it easy to adjust and install in seconds.
A pull-up bar is a fitness training equipment that is ideal for building excellent upper body strength. Changing your grip will allow you to do different exercises to work on different parts of your body (arms, back and core). Read our tips on how to choose a pull-up bar.
