Need Help Stabilizing Homemad Pull Up Rig

A buddy and me made this mobile pullup rig. It's fairly sturdy, but after a while of kipping it starts to sway. Any thoughts or suggestions on how to make it more stable? Our last idea was using rope and tent stakes which you can see in the pic.

Re: Need Help Stabilizing Homemad Pull Up Rig

The easiest and fastest way would be to hook a rope (one that doesn't stretch) to the top of each side and stake it 15-20' to each side of the structure. This would leave the middle totally open without any crossbarcing getting in the way.
