Torque Athletic Mod 2
When it comes to free standing pull up bars it would be nearly impossible to beat this model. It incorporates everything you could ask for while being portable. Setting it up and breaking it down takes only a few minutes and it is designed to withstand even the harshest of elements. The fact that it breaks down into pieces would make you think that is a little flimsy but this is in fact one of the most solid free standing pull up bars on the market. It adjusts up to 9 feet tall so it fits everyone and the extra wide frame gives you tons of space to move around. It also offers two different grip positions for more pull up options. The grips are thick and comfortable on the hands while still allowing for a decent grip. What really sets this pull up bar apart from the rest is its Olympic bar rests which turn it into a make shift power cage.
Tactical Athlete Pull-up System
This is another awesome free standing pull up bar that can transported anywhere. Set up and take down takes only a few minutes and a single tool. It can adjust from 5 to 9 feet tall to fit literally any one. The width of the frame is very spacious so there is a lot of room to move in and out of the frame as well as swing from side to side. The base is as stable as they come; you would feel comfortable hanging upside down from this bar. The bar is the perfect thickness and perfectly knurled for grip and comfort. One downside is the single grip bar with no other hand placement options. This system also comes with anchors on each side for band and suspension movements which triple your workout options.
One popular form of the freestanding pull up bar is the power tower. These towers are not portable like a traditional freestanding bar, but they have their own features that make them desirable. Few people do the power tower better than Xmark Fitness. The base is not super wide but it is sturdy once it is set up. This magnificent piece of equipment has an extra wide pull up bar to do traditional and wide grip pull ups. The bar is comfortable to grip and offers enough texture to maintain your grip throughout a set. Beyond that there are stations on the power tower for crunches, deep push ups, dips, and leg raises.
Bowflex may be a controversial presence in the fitness industry but the Body Tower is all quality. It has a super wide base for total support during every movement. It offers multiple comfortable grip positions to perform all versions of pull ups. It comes with an adjustable dip station to fit your size and your goals. The Body Tower also comes with straps for performing all sorts of movements including leg raises. The rounded back support for dips is not exactly great for back support but it is an awesome stretching aid that can be incorporated into other exercises.
Steel Fit Free Standing Bar
This is another free standing bar that has a ton of options. First of all this bar is wide and sturdy there is no doubt about that. The base is light enough to be moved, but can be mounted to the floor for extra stability. The bar is a little rough, but it is nothing that some gloves or calluses can’t handle. The frame is sufficiently wide enough to comfortably move around inside of the bars. This is important because the bar can be adjusted anywhere between 2 and 9 feet so you can use it not only for pull ups, but rows, push ups, ab work, and more. If that wasn't enough Steel Fit offers the option to purchase a rack bracket system to turn this into a make shift power cage.
