Pull up bars/Dip bars

I am currently starting a new crossfit affiliate and am using a local track. I have offered to put in additional pull up bars and dip bars there. Does anyone have a layout/schematics for the cheapest/best way to build pull up bars/dip bars.

There are bars there already that are good but i see a variety of bar set ups on the main site wod videos. Just wondering what the most efficient way to get this done. Thanks

No need for dip bars if you have rings. It might be worthwhile to compare the costs of building dip bars or buying rings.

I agree... anything you can do with dips you will do better with on rings.

But for the newer people who don't have the requisite upper body strength you may have to come up with some scaling options if you choose to go solely rings.

at my affiliate there are no dip bars. only rings. if they cant do them they tie a band on one ring and stretch it across and hold it on the other ring and put a knee or both on the band until they can do them

Yep, instead of dips, they will have to learn how to do simple supports, then negatives besides ring pushups, support if need be. You could do bands of course though.
