Muscle ups with Garage Gym
 
For the people with garage gyms. What are you guys doing for ring muscle ups? My sealing is 9ft and I can't really set up rings inside the garage. I have no big trees outside to hang ring straps. I was wondering if anyone has some clever ideas about setting up a contraption outside of the house to attach some ring straps to. I have a 2 floor house.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have a deck or anything?

Is there an attic access in the garage?

I still remember this climbing rig from a video that is a couple years old. It's a pretty simple A- frame that could probably be built out of wood pretty cheaply. Maybe attach something like this to the side of the house for rope climbs or ring work...?

That video showed exactly what I was looking for. Now to find a welder to set that up for me.

Thanks to everyone for their responses.

i don't have an outdoor setup but just wanted to chime in to say it doesn't take much space to hang up rings in a usable area.

i use the following setup (see attached) in my doorway. the pic is from an older apartment but still the same setup in new place.

Is it bad that one of the selling points of my house was that the garage has a 15 foot ceiling?? :)
