    pull-up bars

    Shop Now
    this one, which costs $30, or this one, which is marked down from $60 to $40, and is more versatile. as a fitness gear newb, i have no clue if the extra features in the more expensive one is worth the additional money.

    The second. More positions = better.
    Looks a lot like the one from Beach Body (P90x).

    I like to make my own stuff. This cost maybe 20 bucks and has held up well over the last few months.

    I have one similar to the first one and it serves me fine, I prefer more grip options over less though so for $10 extra I’d probably go with the second one. Looks like the part where it sticks out more could work if you ever want to device a suspension trainer (or use a bedsheet like I show in the Worldwide pull up thread)

    Go with the second one for the exact reason stated above. Plus, it gets you a little further away from the door frame which allows increased range-of-motion.

    I have the first one and used it through 2 rounds of P90X. Both are made by the same manufacturer and are of equal quality so if money is really an issue it will still be okay.

    I had the second one, and it was great, but if your door frame has a large molding it won't work. My new place has probably 7" door molding and I had to get a different one - which is ok but not as good / versatile. Amazon.com: EVERLAST CHIN UP BAR: Sports & Outdoors
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    This is mine. Cost 3 - an old metal bar I found and 2 swing screws. It's been going for about 14 months now without any problems!

    coach- you don't see an advantage to different grips? i'm a beginner, btw. as in, "i've never done a pull up before" type of beginner.
