The Iron Gym workout bar has six different grip positions to choose from.
Narrow (Chin-Ups or Pull-Ups)
Neutral (Palms Facing Each Other)
Extra Wide (Challenging)
Floor Grips (Push-Ups/Dips)
All of the six grip positions are well padded and are wide enough to provide coverage for the entire width of the hand. The narrow position is used for standard pull-ups (palms away from body) and chin-ups (palms toward body). The two “narrow” positions are in many cases more comfortable to work with since they orient the palms facing each other. The Iron Gym Xtreme bar gets its “extreme” name from the wide and extra wide grip positions that provide the ultimate pull-up challenge. Our tester got quite a workout even after only a couple reps in these positions. The widest grip has a slight angle which places the wrists in an ergonomic position. Without the slight angle it would be awkward to use.
