The Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar (Extreme Edition) is just like the original Iron Gym Workout Bar, except that it offers a lot more pull up grips. The result is a simple tool ideal for ripping your lats into shape, as well as performing chin ups, sit ups and push ups. All in all, it’s a remarkably cheap product that (amazingly enough) is really well engineered and works like a charm.
Let's start with the simple fact that this tool is mainly built for back work. You're not going to get ripped doing dips and push-ups with this. However, given that there are 5 lat positions from to choose, you can definitely built a thorough back.
Our recommendation is that you pair the Iron Gym Workout Bar with a bench press and squat rack to get a full body workout. Just make certain you possess the ability to perform actual pull ups, because they are nothing like doing lat pull downs on a machine.Click here to see what others are saying...
So this tool takes 15 minutes maximum to assemble. Furthermore, it handles all doors between 24 and 34 inches in width that contain a 3.5-inch trim. Also, though it weighs practically nothing, it can handle lifters up to 300 pounds.
One notable advantage to Iron Gym Extreme Edition Bar is that each hand grip position is padded. This includes the close grip position. Many bars we've tried before unfortunately did not pad the center portion, which we found to be very annoying.
One Warning: Keep an eye out on your door's mold, especially if you are on the heavier side. It will dig into the mold. Some users report no mold damage, but on the other hand, other users do report mold damage. We figure it to be a worthwhile sacrifice, because frankly, this workout bar is far safer than the traditional horizontal type.

In conclusion, the Iron Gym Xstream Total Upper Body Workout Bar is a cheap, sturdy and functional tool for strengthening your back muscles. And that's it. We realize it offers additional functions, but in our opinion, they are listed only to make it look 'cooler' and nothing more.Click here to purchase this product on Amazon.
