Pullup Question

I am currently working on my garage gym and a problem i am starting to see is the lack of a pull up bar. I do not want to do to much damage to the walls and roof of the insde of the garage, however i was thinking of mounting a bar on the garage door frame. would this be stable enough to kip? i was thinking run a bar all the way across and in the middle have one bar go to roof. ideas?

Re: Pullup Question

If you're thinking of those door pullup bars they're not made for kipping. You may be able to reinforce it for that purposes with some metal holder thing drilled to the wall.

Re: Pullup Question

I understand where your coming from on cutting into the drywall. As long as you make clean cuts and do a easy plaster job on any openings you will be fine imo. I cut into my walls to expose the 2x4s so I could do this. If you ever have to move it is a easy fix and very cheap.
Cars are better kept outside of the garage!
