About BullWorker Pro

Isometrics – that’s the buzzword they use when talking about the BullWorker Pro – a compact handheld spring-based workout device. An isometric exercise is one that uses resistance to contract a muscle (or group of muscles) with little movement. They claim that you can use the BullWorker Pro for just 7 seconds at a time to build strength and lean muscle fast.

The BullWorker has been around since the 1970s, and the BullWorker Pro is the latest version. It is sold by Ontel Products Corporation, which is based in Fairfield, NJ. They are not accredited by the BBB and currently have a C rating due to hundreds of complaints about their products and advertising.

How BullWorker Pro Works

The BullWorker Pro is essentially two long metal tubes that fit inside each other. There are rubber grips on each end as well as on the plastic cables that run along the sides. Inside the tube, one of 3 springs with different resistance levels can be inserted (think of a shock absorber.)

They claim you can exercise with the BullWorker Pro in over 40 different ways – a chart is provided. However you use it, you are either pushing on the ends or pulling the side cables and the spring inside is providing the resistance. A built-in “smart timer” counts down the 7 seconds required for each hold/pose. They tout that this 2-lb piece of equipment can offer up to 100 lbs of resistance.

They claim using the BullWorker Pro in this fashion will give you a bigger chest, strengthen your back and shoulders, tighten your abs and obliques, as well as give you enhanced muscle definition. They say it is good for both men and women and you can concentrate on certain muscle groups or give yourself a total body workout. They state its compact size makes it easy to store, as well as use anywhere, including while watching TV.

BullWorker Pro comes with:

  • BullWorker Pro
  • 3 springs with 3 resistance levels (22 lbs, 69 lbs, or 87 lbs.)
  • Digital counter
  • Exercise wall chart

BullWorker Pro Pricing, Shipping, and Returns

The Bullworker Pro can be purchased in 2 payments of $19.95 or one payment of $39.90 plus $14.95 S & H and $1 “Web Service Fee” for a total of $55.85. You have 60 days to try BullWorker Pro, and if you don’t like it, they say you can return it (you pay the postage) and they will refund your money, minus S & H and Web Service Fee.

Bottom Line: Is BullWorker Pro Worth It?

As we mentioned, BullWorker has been around for many years, and there are many a muscleman who will wax nostalgic about them. Isometric exercises are also not new, but have recently come back in vogue. According to the US Department of Health, isometric exercises are beneficial if done for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. But these exercises won’t help with speed, cardio, or athletic performance and are thought to maintain – not build – muscle mass, most effectively during rehabilitation. Used in conjunction with, not instead of, other types of exercise (and a healthy diet) we think it will work for you, albeit in a more limited fashion.

    Best workout I ever had.

    • New York,
    • Mar 7, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I love the BullWorker, it is a sculpting, muscle-building, strength-tasking machine. I need a new one, mine wore out. It is an all-in-one exercise tool. Try it, you will never put it down. And it works. I'm 58 and look great. Thanks to BullWorker.

    Very happy with it

    • California,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought mine directly from the company, paid with PayPal...it wasn’t cheaper on eBay. It arrived fast. It is improved over the older version. I can’t lift weights anymore because of my rear-end car accident, and I feel confident this is what I need.

    BullWorker works.

    I bought my original BullWorker by mail order in 1976 when I was 17 years old. I could not do one overhand pull up or one good dip, with legs crossed behind me and all the way down and back up. I used the thing religiously five days per week. I did the original 24 exercises on the goofy old wall chart that everyone laughs at now. I did not do anything else like free weights or universal machines. Soloflex and Bowflex were not invented yet. Total Gym was already out, but it was the clinical heavy duty one used in rehab centers that was way out of my price range.

    In about six or seven months I could do eleven perfect, overhand pull-ups, chin over the bar and all the way down. I could do over 20 perfect dips. I was also noticeably much more toned. However, I did not ever achieve the "bulging, he-man muscles" and arms that were "rippling pillars of strength" as advertised in the beautiful color brochure they sent me before I bought. I still have that thing, and it works perfectly.

    Get one; you can't go wrong. Just remember to do some cardio too.

    BullWorker is for REAL

    • Georgia,
    • Dec 13, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    The people who degrade this device have NO idea what they're talking about! I won big in two tough man shows in '79 and '80 in New York and the BullWorker was instrumental in giving me massive punching power. It also made me built like a weightlifter and strong as a bull. I was a very good athlete and very strong to start with, but the BullWorker DEFINITELY added substantially to what I already had.

    I used to go around my college arm wrestling football players for fun and money. You should have seen the looks on their faces when I always won. I NEVER lost. Believe what you will. I could tell you strength and punching power-related stories that you would simply not believe - so I won't - but they are all true. The BullWorker was a big part of what gave me my unnatural strength.

    The BullWorker is one of the best - if not THE best - exercise device ever developed. I LIVED it. I was known for being incredibly strong among everyone who knew me or knew of me and I had punching power in both hands that could just plain put a man out of commission. Much of this was attributable to the BullWorker - period. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that this device is a secret weapon that will make you strong as a bull.

    I LIVED THIS. I know that what I'm telling you here is true.

    More Deception

    • Fort Lauderdale, FL,
    • Jul 7, 2015

    To place my order, I called the phone number from their website, with the ad clearly in front of me while I spoke with the clerk. After providing my credit card info plus shipping address, the clerk starting trying to "up sell" me for more products. I listened and agreed to purchase the carrying case.

    The clerk then offered the chart and told me it would cost an additional amount of money. When I said "Your website clearly shows: Free bonus Exercise wall chart", he responded by saying that it does not apply when calling in an order. Then I told them that the website is where I just got the phone number in order to call you to place this order.

    At that point, he started getting rude and I told him that I was no longer interested. Too many scams occurring these days. Stay clear of this flim-flam.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Still Waiting

    • Watertown, CT,
    • Jul 7, 2015

    Like others, I provided the credit card information and have received no product even though I ordered back in July. I liked the original BullWorker that I bought in the 70s and was hoping to get a new one. No dice. I suggest you avoid the merchant. Something's definitely not right with them.

    Lousy service

    • Pahrump, NV,
    • Jul 1, 2015

    I ordered one Bullworker Pro in January, paid in full up front, and waited to receive. Four months later I was still being told it was on back order. I said to skip it and send me my money back. That was two months ago and still nothing. These people are a rip off. Stay away from Bullworker Pro.

    Poor service

    • New Orleans,
    • Oct 5, 2014

    Ordered two back in June. Received one in October. Had to convince customer service I did not get complete order. Also did not receive optional tension springs I ordered. Customer service very poor. Do not listen well! What a shame, because I liked the product. Something smells fishy. Not worth the aggravation.

    Poor Quality

    • Blythewood, SC,
    • Jul 18, 2014

    Ordered the Bull Worker Pro and was excited about the new model with the ability to change out the tension springs. Received the item on 7/17/14 and to my surprise the item was of poor quality. The white reset button on the timer and counter popped out 3 times and the bands were not expandable enough to complete the first exercise and this was with the beginner spring. This item is not worth ordering... Purchase something else of better quality.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
