The pull-up exercise (also known as the chin-up) is a workout for upper body strength and endurance, which helps strengthen and develop your shoulders, back, and arms. The exercise requires an overhead horizontal bar, at a height so that the feet are not touching the ground.
A pull up bar is available that can be installed in most homes around a standard door frame, making this exercise an easy one to be done at home. As you can see there are a few different styles of chin-up bars, with varying degree of quality and versatility.
Below are just some examples of each type, there are many more available.
