Advice for garage gym pullup bar

My next addition in my garage gym is a pullup bar. I want one that mounts from the ceiling. So far I have found the Rogue and AF stud pullup bars. What else is out there and is it as good a quality as these two?

I've used a few DIY pullup bars in garages that work great!

Re: Advice for garage gym pullup bar

Nobody has any other stud bars in their garages? I just want to hear from people and see what you have. Looks like AF is in the lead w their "home pullup bar". Only $99. Does anyone know the difference between it and the $139 bar?

Re: Advice for garage gym pullup bar

I just got some 1" OD galvanized pipe, 2 flanges, 2 elbows, and a 2x4. Secured the two flanges into the 2x4 with 4 screws each, screwed a piece of galvanized pipe into each flange, and elbow on the other end of each piece of pipe, and another pipe connecting the other end of the two elbows.

I then screwed the 2x4 into the studs in my ceiling. The length of the pullup bar is about 4 feet. I don't really kip anymore, just dead hang. Back when I used to kip though it held up pretty well. I weigh about 225.

Re: Advice for garage gym pullup bar

I put this up myself at my affiliate. Threaded pipe, found in plumbing section at Lowe's. One T fitting. Three flanges and 3/16"x4" lag screws. Very secure and more than what you need. I spent about $103.00, that included my 10% mil discount.

Re: Advice for garage gym pullup bar

Thank you for the replies. Can anyone compare the $99 Again Faster pullup bar vs the more expensive Rogue pullup bar? Is there a difference that is worth the extra money?

Re: Advice for garage gym pullup bar

stud bar...the one and only. Glassman's on their front page endorsing it. Kewl.

http://www.studbarpullup.com/

A few different sizes makes this nice. My garage has an 8'-0" ceiling, and I bought the low profile SMALL size. Very sturdy so long as all bolts are thru some stud.

wfs...sigh
