portable pull-ups

Going to bring cross fit to the white collar man (and woman).......I was wondering if there were a few links to good portable pull-ups stands.

Something light weight, strong and can be put together quickly and dissasembled quicker.

thanks

Re: portable pull-ups

Google 'TAPS bar' and 'again faster bar', and 'elite rings'. That should give you some ideas. With regards to the TAPS bar I am in the process of having one fabricated as I am not prepared to pay for shipping to england for something so simple to make.

Rope and a bar. Elite rings. A tree limb. A playground bar. The edge of a building.

The world is your gym.

Re: portable pull-ups

Michael,

I got a "TAPS" pullup bar about a year ago and use to PT firefighters in the academy as well as 75 lb weighted pullups for me. (I weigh 205)
Very rugged and easy to set up, but very expensive and heavy to haul around. That all being said I'm glad I got it.

Re: portable pull-ups

My favorite is the EasyEffort (definitely mis-named!) Universal Door Mount Chinup Bar (UD-5), which mounts to a door frame without damaging it:

ALL LINKS ARE WFS

There is also a wider version, depending on the size of your door (UD-6):
http://www.pullupbar.com/

There are a number of similar products, such as the Door Gym:
http://www.doorgym.net/

As others have mentioned, you can increase the versatility of your pull-up bar by using some type of ring or strap system. Elite rings seem to be a good choice (although I haven't used them yet):
http://www.ringtraining.com/

I made my own system, using webbing and hardware from StrapWorks and some PVC pipe:

Enjoy your pullups!
