Pull Up Station in Garage

Like all the other posts on pull up bars. I would love your thoughts on this. Since this is for my garage, and limited people using it, would something similar to the picture attached work without the two posts near the wall?

Instead of those, I was thinking of attaching the pipe direct to a 2x8 that is spanning accross 4 studs. (two posts instead of four and bars on three sides).

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: Pull Up Station in Garage

I can't answer your question, but do you have any more pics of that setup you posted? That is exactly what I want to build in our gym.

Thanks,
Nick

Looks like CrossFit Fairfax, and the pic properties confirms:

You can see a lot more of it in their video interview from the homepage.

Re: Barney
Pictures would be appreciated.


Plans popped into my head today for a freestanding 4 person pull-up bar made of some heavy planks... And when things like that get in my head, I get excited, hahah. The timing of this thread is nice.

Re: Pull Up Station in Garage

Pictures from my wife's camera too large to post here. I have no idea how to resize the file to make it work. Therefore go here to see pictures of the construction.

I just took pictures of the components after the pull up station was completed. I also neglected to take any photos before I cluttered it up with items.

If you want clearer pictures send me your email and I get them to you.

Go here for the photos: www.crossfitrichmond.myphotoalbum.comFREAKINWFS LINK

Regards,
Barney

Re: Pull Up Station in Garage

Thanks a lot Barney. That is exactly what I plan to build. Are the 4x4's fine, or do you think 4x6 or 6x6 would be overkill?

The picture I posted is from Fairfax. You can look around for other pictures with other angles.

For my purposes, I think this is a good design.

Re: Pull Up Station in Garage

I don't think I need anything larger than a 4x4. Right now, I just am doing one-on-one training. I am the heaviest, kippingest person that will use it. I swung all over it today with no problem.

Since it is new I will have to wait and see how it holds up. If I need bigger timber it shouldn't be that hard to change out, just on tapcon and 4 screws per side.

By the way, I weigh between 175 and 180 depending on recent diet and the moon.

Barney

Re: Pull Up Station in Garage

Good Deal. Thanks Barney.

I'll post pictures when I'm done. Just bought rings, med ball, 320# of bumpers, flooring, pendley bar, box, jump rope, now this. The folks at the gym will think I've given up. I'll show back up when I need the rower, though.
