I'm the Physical Fitness Officer this semester and I want to do something that no other PFO has done before me. Bring pullups into the morning PT routine.

I need suggestions on how to make a series of pullup bars, enough to allow at least 5 cadets to perform pullups at a time. Its need to be free standing and transportable.

ALL suggestion are welcomed.
-Mike

Not that I have any great ideas but someone else might. SO by "transportable" do you mean able to break down and put in a car or truck, or "transportable" as in "can be picked up by a squad and carried 50 yards to a different spot on the field"?

You might want to check out the TAPS system for some inspiration.

I don't think that is feasible. I think I understand what you are trying to do. If you had the resources, I would suggest welding pipe together in a squarish type of formation. But even then, it would have to be pretty large to keep from tipping over. (honestly... if you could find a soccer goal, that would also work, but there would be little to no grip)

OR... you could go with the Again Faster type of pull-up bar, then all you need is a place to suspend it.

A suggestion, find a park with pull-up bars or a jungle gym.

The again faster bar costs more than rings. Not to mention it being out of stock at the moment.

Are there no pull-up bars around campus? Or is there room to set up a more permanent rig around the Det? The latter would be a much easier, cheaper option.

P.S. Not to steal your thunder, but it wasn't all that long ago that pull ups were actually part of the AFROTC PFT.
