In use? It's painful but you get the benefits very quickly without absolutely killing yourself. You don't need to do hours of it unless you're looking for the body-beautiful. If you just want to raise your heart rate a few times a day, you soon notice it.
The brackets supplied are wider than the bars they carry, I believe this was done so that there is a bit of leeway to mount the 4 individual brackets on the wall and not get them exactly straight or in line. I resolved the resulting free play by replacing the Philips head screw and nut combination supplied with a standard M6 nut and bolt. This enables you to put much more torque on and consequently eliminate lateral movement.
I have taken a star off as this would be a known issue to the supplier who should either provide spacers/washers to take up the slack or make the brackets narrower.
The wall fixing bolts are excellent, I have mine in hard brick and they are going nowhere. I weigh 17 stone and there is no movement in the bar when in use. In my opinion the bar is good value for money if you are prepared to do some minor adjustments yourself.
Fixing was pretty pain free, so don't worry if you're not particularly good at DIY as the brackets that hold it to the wall have a generous amount of leeway - they're wider than the rods they hold, so when you tighten up the bolts the bracket mounts are bent inwards by the force and thus clamp the rods in place. This means that the brackets don't have to be fixed exactly vertically as they can be up to approx 1cm out of position and the rods will still fit. Just remember to drill the holes deep enough and into brick not mortar.
The bars themselves protrude about 2 feet from the wall, so if you bring your knees up too high you'll be scraping them against the wall. THIS IS ACTUALLY A GOOD THING - you're supposed to be keeping your body as straight as you can when you perform chin ups and pull ups, not bringing your knees right up and swinging from the bars like a chimp, a common mistake lots of people make. So in that respect these bars will force you to do chin ups and pull ups properly!
There are no grips on the bar, but the easiest solution to this is to buy a pair of gym gloves - less than a tenner and problem solved. Result.
Lastly, if you're out of practice then download a chin up training app from somewhere and use it to gradually build up your reps, much more useful than struggling to do a handful of reps and giving up.
Once up it seems solid , I'm only 12 stone but there's no give or sense of flimsiness. You also get a good clearance from the wall so no scraping of the knees. Facing away from the wall you can do knee or leg raises.
I've a suspension trainer and a set of rock rings that I've tried on it with no issues.
The one thing this may not be good for is "archer" pull ups. I'm not sure it would hold up to the uneven pressure for long.
Overall for the money I'm really pleased especially as I was thinking of getting a more expensive bar that would have just done the same job.
Wish I'd bought this a while back.
Using different grips you can work loads of different muscles. I found a good guide online for free which gave me the reps to do and targets for each session, and that was useful. A quick Google will sort you out.
I put this up indoors and it is doable; Being 6'2 with long arms i debated whether putting up inside would work but it did and I have no complaints.
