Torque Athletic Pull Up System video clip (Portable Pull Up station)

There seems to be regular interest in these self contained type units, either commercial or home-made. From personal experience, it's difficult to get a handle on what they really look like without seeing one in person. So, for anyone interested, I created a video of my unit just before taking it apart (I've replaced it with a 90” high power rack with built in pull up bar). It's useful for anyone who, for whatever reason, can not build into their walls or ceiling. I personally would be hesitant to leave it outdoors unprotected but the manufacturer says the “proprietary powder coat finish protects this unit even in the harshest of environments.” The bar itself is a little thick for me but I have small hands. As for kipping, I wouldn't know, but I tried to shake the unit around enough so that you can judge for yourself.

Here is my Work/Family safe demo:

If anyone in the Tampa Bay or Sarasota County area wants to buy this unit, I will sell it for 2/3rds of the retail price for pick-up. It has minimal wear.

that thing would definitely not stand up to my fat a** getting after it with my disjointed/uncoordinated kipping...

While it may be doable, I don't think the unit would be ideal for kipping either. Maybe if it had posts on the floor to pile on some heavy weights ... but then you would be tripping over them in your gym.
