The pullup bar is among the most popular attachments for the Total Gym trainer. Though there have been many versions of the Total Gym pullup bar since it debuted in 1996, the basic design remains the same. The pullup bar is also known as a “wing attachment.” Depending on what exercises you plan to perform using the pullup bar, there are different attachment styles.

Step 1

Move to the end of the Total Gym tower. Push the foot holder down and ensure that it is stabilized. Take the pullup bar in your hands with the mounting brackets turned toward the floor and the bar's end bracket turned in the opposite direction from you. When the pullup bar is turned in the opposite direction, it's the end bracket that's facing forward -- away from your own body. These brackets should now be turned toward the glide board.

Step 2

Find the openings at the top of the rails and line up the brackets with the attachments. Maneuver the pullup bar's brackets over the openings at the top ends of the sloping rails. The bar should face the glide board underneath.

Step 3

Move the locking pin into both sides of the pullup bar's attachment brackets. These two long hitch pins should go through the attachment brackets and the holes in the rail. Push and pull the pullup bar up and down several times to ensure stability. Before exercising seriously on the Total Gym's pullup bar, you will want to make sure that it has locked in place.

Tip

  • The Total Gym should be at a slanted position with the pullup bar attached firmly to the top of the sloping pair of rails. In order to do a pullup, a Total Gym user lies face-down on the glide board to hold onto the pullup bar, and contracts the arms, lats, and back muscles in order to do pullups and chin-ups.
