Pull up Bar - Portable.

In June I go Camping for 3 weeks. I was wandering what can I make or buy that would be a good pull up bar.

I was thinking of some 4x4 post's with a bolt through it, that I could stand up as a triangular base with a pull up bar spanning two of them. but that sound difficult,big and heavy.

Re: Pull up Bar - Portable.

Steve,

You might consider taking a set of rings with you. I attach my rings to a tree branch to do pull-ups. The good thing about the rings is they are portable and you can do a lot of other exercises on them as well.

Re: Pull up Bar - Portable.

I agree with the rings.

Or a length of thick rope to wrap around a tree limb. Let the ends hang down to grab on to. Or even a towel with the same method. As a kid I did them just with my hands from a low hanging branch.

Re: Pull up Bar - Portable.

This was just posted ( or at least I just saw it ) the other day. Looks like another great idea akin to the againfaster bar.

Question Re: Pull up Bar - Portable.

Has anyone made a homemade pullup station out of PVC pipe? I was thinking 1 1/2" Sch. 40. Something along the lines of the TAPS station where the vertical portion was positioned in a "T". The other sections could be glued in smaller sections and then each section press fit on-site for portability... Kipping may be an issue, but I wouldn't think that deadhangs would be a big deal.

Any thoughts?

Re: Pull up Bar - Portable.

Not to change topics, but does anyone know if "spring loaded" pullup bars are made anymore (or ever were). I just need it to hold 150lbs max and stick it between a doorway. I can't have bolts, and I just want it to spring, then maybe you turn the bar to screw it tighter, and that's it. I can't use any of the door over the frame bars because of this specific apartment setup - I've checked them all out. And I have rings but there are no trees directly outside that will work to hang them on.

If someone has any idea about a spring type pullup bar - essentially a heavy duty rod - let me know!
