This is my first video review ever. I’ve seen so many late night commercials of this thing, I decided to give it a go. The Iron Gym is a metal bar contraption which allows you to do chinups on your door way. I asked Craig at work about it since he has one and he’s pretty happy with it.

Here’s my 2 cents.

  • The components were pretty sturdy.
  • Assembly took 10 minutes. Take a minute and take a good look at the manual and you could end up spending 5 instead.
  • The bar itself could be a little longer or made so that it’s adjustable in length to fit different size doorways.

I thought the Iron Gym was very easy to use. You can use it to do pushups, dips and chinups, but I’ll probably be using it mostly for chinups. Keep in mind that this thing will most likely only work on standard doorways. If your doorway is too wide or in a weird corner, it may not work. The other thing I have to say is that you are really hanging on your top door frame. That thing better be sturdy. I’m not sure what the maximum weight your doorway and bar will support but I figured that it wasn’t going to be a problem for me since I’m a lot smaller than your average American.
