What about building a rack out of treated wooden posts? Use 6"-8" thick posts, set them in the ground. Drill some 2" holes through the uprights for rack rails. Get some 1" steel rods for the rails.

Good diagram! Only I would substitute the front beam for a Pull-up bar! That would be awesome.
IMHO.

If you make the rack 9 feet tall, you could drill another set of holes 8 feet up and do chins off the rail using that setting.
