I keep seeing these advertisements for the Iron Gym on television. This is a contraption you hang on your door jam, and do pull ups, you can also put it on your feet to do sit ups, and also use it for push ups. I'm a big fan of using my body to build my body, and this seemed like an inexpensive tool to help me. But I always wondered exactly how it worked. What held it on exactly.
I went looking for it at amazon.com and was glad to see some of the customers had posted their own pictures and explained that it your door frame molding is not at least 1/2 inch it may not work for you. It also shows that some assembly is required (probably 10-20 minutes to assemble) and more.
You door should be 24-32 inches wide, and your molding should not be wider than 3 1/2 inches. The bad review at amazon.com was from someone who had a very wide door jam (common sense anyone?). There is even a video that shows you how to assemble it (look in the customer reviews). You will find out that the “Free” straps to allow you to work your abs do not come with the unit. You have to pay shipping and handling (so your free item is 8 bucks).
So my question is, does anybody have any first hand knowledge of the Iron Gym? Leave a comment below or in the forum.
