My DIY Studbar Pull-up Bar

I wanted to get a pullup bar for my garage.

Originally I was going to just purchase the studbar but I also wanted to save some funds for other things.

Luckily, I have family inside a large steel tubing company and a few phone calls was all it took. If you have a steel company around or family who works at one , chances are you can have something welded up pretty cheap.

Less than a week later, this is the end result. The thing is solid with heavy duty steel. The guys who made it at the plant also knurled the bar for me which I'm not particularly fond of but some tape over that will do the trick.

The bar is 48"inches long and has 4 lag bolts on each t-brace directly into the studs.

Next thing I want them to build me is a squat rack.

That thing looks sweet Noah. It's awesome the stuff you can get done once you find a good welder. I got my squat rack made and now I just keep coming up with other projects.

Re: My DIY Studbar Pull-up Bar

Nice looking bar. I will have some pics up next week of the flying pu bar I am installing this weekend.

I have open stud so I went real cheap on 2 of my bars. 1 it took a piece of 1-1/4 sch 40 5' long and ran a chain through it and wrapped it around a beefed up stud. It spins a little and swings. Not good for kipping but good for drills and Ls pre and post WOD stuff. The other is a piece of 1" sch 40 with end caps drilled out with 1/2" bolts sticking out the on a 1' length of chain on each end bolted to a stud. This thing really spins fast. Tough on the forearms and the grip.

These were in addition to some standard type bars I made with pipe and flanges through some 2x6s.

I love the DIY stuff.
