I had this idea a while ago but haven't implemented it--wanted to run it by you all before I buy the stuff.

My front porch has some exposed joists, so I thought about screwing some lag eye screws into the joists, then getting a heavy-duty pipe and hanging it with some rope from the screws, but I'm not sure how well I could kip with that. Another idea is using two points of support instead of one; i.e., instead of the rope hanging straight down, it'd make a V-shape with the bar at the bottom of the V.

I apologize in advance if this question has already been raised or is too basic to even mention, but I couldn't find much on this through the search function. Thanks!
