What is the best pull-up bar for a basement on Amazon? Well, that varies greatly depending on your basement. All basements are different. Different heights, different construction, different material type.
Before we get into it I also have an article on How To Make Your Own Dip Bars. Pretty simple and worthy of a look-see.
Things To Consider
So, it takes a little planning to figure what you want with the basement you have. There is no one size fits all for every basement. Some basements have steel I-beams, some basements have 2 X 10 joist.
Another main deciding factor is height. If your basement is 7 feet or under you will have a harder time performing chin-ups and installing a chin-up bar properly. Height can be a problem due to having your arms outstretched and most people being around 6 feet tall there is an obvious problem here.
Ideally, you want 8 to 10 feet for the height of your basement for easy set up as well as performing a pull-up without having to tuck your knees in. You can tuck your knees if you have a shorter basement height and is better than having nothing.
It is best to take a tape measure down to your basement and find out what you are working with in terms of height and then proceed from there. Then spend some time determining what kind of structure you have to attach to down in the basement.

Pull-Up Bar for I-Beam or H-beams
This is the first pull-up bar on the market to work on I-beams as well as H-beams. The I-beams size can range between 3 1/2″ to 10″ wide. So this is pretty versatile in size range.
This has three different hand positions in which to choose from. This should be fast secure setup, as there is zero drilling involved.
You can feel really safe too when this is properly attached to the beam, as it has been tested to hold 500 lbs. This is made in the USA too.
Mounted On Wall Or Floor
This mounts above a doorway or can be attached to wooden beam. It is all welded steel so you know it is strong. It has curves in the handle for having three different hand positions when using.
