Rated 5 out of 5 by X'er Awesome!
As a woman I didn't feel like I was getting all I could out of P90X using the bands, but couldn't do even one pull up/ chin up. Got this and it is AMAZING! Very sturdy construction, impressed with the quality! It feels great to get that full range of motion, and it will be easy to increase difficulty as I get stronger. Wish I would have bought it 9 weeks ago when I started! My husband is also ordering his own he was so impressed. Thanks Beachbody! Another great product!

It helps you unbelievably well! I can do only three pull ups, but with this, I can do 10!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucia314 Great Assist for Women
P90X and P90X2 have greatly enhanced my athleticism and even increased my abilities in dance and pilates. Pull-ups had been the most intimidating aspect of these programs. I had the P90X chin up bar and made do with a chair to assist. FINALLY, I now have the Chin Up Max. What a difference! I love the greater range of motion. I feel powerful when using this. The adjustabilty is great too.
I highly recommend this product for anyone who feels their pull-ups need assistance. This will make all the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzJStein REALLY helpful!
This product is a godsend - no need to fuss with chair-assisted pullups/chinups - just hook this thing onto the bar, and away you go! Looking forward to the day when I can do the exercises completely unassisted, but until then... this is the way to go. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reallifeshocker Chin up max
I do al whole bunch of chin-ups, such a great strength builder. I have a sports-related right arm injury that makes certain hand angles painful for the arm, this item allows me to get around that. Happy me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by miketbo25 Best item ever!!
I love this product! My wife and I got this for Christmas and we have used it every day. It helps you to be able to do chin ups far better than a chair ever will.
I recommend this to everyone I know who is starting P90X(2)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by msamec Way better than a chair for pull-up assistance
I needed help with pull-ups so started with resistance bands. I felt like I had moved passed the bands but still wasn't able to do many pull-ups, especially while maintaining good form. The chair as suggested in the video did not help much. It really breaks form.
The band was the perfect solution. I have been gradually reducing the tension as my strength is improving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shortpath The Bomb for pullups
On my second round of P90X and while I can crank out 10 plus pullups it gets ugly fast. This system keeps me clean at 20 plus. Will cut back on the amount of bands soon. Money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by teenfitness16 Works Exactly as adertised
I'm 16 years old and have recently started P90X. I used to do the occasional workout with my father and would always have to use the chair for workouts with pull-ups. Preforming pull-ups with the chair didn't let me get full range of motion and didn't let me work my back as much as I would have liked. I wanted a better way of performing pull-ups before I began P90X. Luckily my dad ordered the Chin-Up Max along with the P90X pull-up bar.
The product is absolutely fantastic! Basically this product works exactly as advertised. It's very sturdy, secure, simple to use & adjust, keeps the body in correctly aligned, allows for better range of motion, and let's me target the back muscles more effectively. Would highly recommend this product for anyone that has difficulty with pull-ups and/or chin-ups.
