I'm getting a bit tired of using my lat pull down bar hung from a hook in the ceiling and want to install a good quality pull up bar on my wall. Is Power Systems still the recommended supplier? They only seem to have one model.

Also, does anyone know how much support the bar needs? My garage is built with plasterboard with wooden beams at certain intervals. What type of fixation do I need to make sure I don't come flying off?

Thanks.

By far the best wall mounted pull up bar is made by Balazs.

I have a wall mounted pullup bar and it extends out farther than the Balazs bar. It still doesn't come out far enough to kip. Before I spent the money for a Balazs bar, I'd look into the Ringside or Title wall mounted heavy bag hangers. Get a pair of them and weld a pipe between and you would be far enough out to kip.

That's what we have at the gym, two title bag hangers with a 2.5 pipe clamped between. I forgot about that...

Matthew,

Does it shake when you kip on it? Do you also use the hangers for heavy bags? I've got one Title wall hanger now.

It does not shake at all. One hanger has a 100lb Fairtex Banana bag on it and the other hanger has a Everlast 70lb bag. We have had Three 200lb guys on it at the same time without a problem. It is mounted to a cement wall though.
