If you’re looking for a bit more in your workout routine and would like to add to your current one then the next step may just be the Iron Gym Xtreme. This is not your average pull up bar but it has much more to offer. The Xtreme version is the level up from the basic one which allows you more gripping positions to better customize your workout.

There are many benefits to this unique device. One of the highlights of this is that it does not need to be mounted with any type of hardware in order for it to be used. It can be taken right out of the box and placed in any standard doorframe and it’s ready to use. It can also be placed on the floor of the frame to be used for exercises such as sit-ups. It can then be taken right to the open floor to be used for a variety of pushups and dips that help target your triceps and biceps.

All of these moves can be made with ease because it never has to be permanently mounted.

Another strong benefit that this device has going for it is the low price. The basic Iron Gym can be purchased for around $ 30 in most brick and mortar locations or on sites like Amazon.com. If you want to get a bit more out of the device and decide to go with the Xtreme edition you can expect to pay about an additional $ 10. So for just $ 40 you get the best version available and it will surely be worth every penny.

There are a few minor cons to the product that I’ve seen overall. The first is related to the weight that the unit can stand up to. If you are an individual that weighs more than 300lbs it not recommended that you use this bar.

It can lead to injury to you as well as the doorframe you’re using it on. Although it is a very solid unit, it is just not made for this type of weight.

The only other con is the misleading approach to the “free” ab strap bonus. It seems in some cases that you’re getting this add-on to your bar for free but in all reality you need to send in the form that comes in the box and pay the shipping and handling in order to receive these. The shipping and handling is a fair price I would say so if you wanted to add these it would be worth it.

If you are looking for a great way to get in shape and get the results you want in the shortest amount of time the Iron Gym Xtreme is the way to go. It’s cheap, it’s solid and with steady use of all of  the different exercises it has to offer you can look forward to the body you’ve been wanting in just a few months.
