When it was just the two posts I used some tie straps and hooked it to the fence and tightened it down to get rid of the sway. The conduit is not metal, and the posts fit in it pretty snug with only a little play. With the 4 sides it is pretty sturdy. Yesteray I was doing butterfly and kipping pull-ups on it while anothe person was using one of the side bars, and it worked well and was very stable without tying it down or using any additional bracing.
