I like the bag idea. I hope to work on something similar soon.

If your worried about the wall, you could put a couple 2X4s attached to studs on the wall and put plywood on top the 2X4s. This is a common way to protect walls in gyms...

Actually like the pullup idea as well LOL. Maybe I can figure out a way for it to work as well...

Just put up my pullup bar in the start of my garage gym. Put it in the corner, allows for some aggressive kips with plenty of room from the wall. Very solid.http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/26/34564.jpg

Michael,

Could you post a couple of close-up pictures of the slide piece on your heavy bag rail? I would like to build one at some point.

Also, have you considered using a spring clamp of some type to prevent it from sliding back when you are pounding on it?

Sam

Don't have the luxury of that much space. Heck, I think our gym at work is smaller than your home gym. And you have a climbing wall...nice!
Beau:
Can you post the specs on that chinup rig you made (pipe size/clamps etc). I might actually have room for that

Just go to the hardware stoor, look at the pipe, feel what works for you and buy 2 x flange, 2 x 6" nipple, 2 x 45 degree elbows and whatever length of bar you would like. Hardware to mount was 8 x 5 1/2" lag bolts (4 on each side to mount 2x6 to studs), 8 x 5" hex bolts to mount flange to 2x6 with washers.
Thats it, my rig was 38$ and I had to buy the wood, all hardware, pipe and PVC for added grip work.

Out of curiosity, what's the purpose of the PVC tube sections?

More thread necromancy!!!

The PVC tubes will be harder than heck to hold on to . . . big diameter (looks like 4"?), free to rotate . . . will make any pullups held there significantly harder. Good grip work.

I'm happy to have seen this thread back from the dead. That sliding heavy bag rail is awesome! Never heard of that. I must make one of those. What a great idea.

A great way to get the bag out of the way when not in use, and also to sorta simulate a moving opponent. I guess thats the point.
