What we've found to be one of the most important benefits of this type of design is opening up the Bar Muscle Up movement. Many intermediate level and advanced level athletes are demanding more versatility out of today's pull up rigs and our Offset Bar delivers. With the top bar extending a full 11" away from the low bar and 6" higher, the athlete has more than enough clearance for the bar muscle up.
But this is not the only advantage. This type of design in the pull-up bar also offers two different pull-up bar heights out of one station. Shorter athletes stand inside the rig facing out and grab the lower bar while taller athletes stand outside the rig facing in for the higher bar.
A pull up rig with multiple bar heights means no more athletes dragging bumpers and plyo boxes under the rig to help them reach. Using those expensive step stools creates tripping hazards and takes equipment out of play.
But one of the less widely known advantages to the Offset Pull Up Bar becomes clear when your class sizes increase and you need more room on the rig for pull-ups, toes to bar, ring dips and more. That high bar on the perimeter of our rig stands 10" away from the poles. That added distance gives you a huge advantage because it opens up space inside the rig. With taller athletes around the perimeter grabbing that high bar, they are effectively pushed out further away from the center of the rig. That means more space inside.
All of our Rigs include Offset Pull Up Bars standard and ship free to the continental US. Ready to add one of them to your gym? Have a look here and get in touch with us should you have any questions.
