Pull-up bar structure design.

Hello all from the sunny Spain.

After thinking a lot about it, I did start a really tiny Box, back home, after a awesome Crossfit trip visiting Toronto, Washington and Salt Lake. Great people everywhere.

I'm looking for a Pull-up structure design. I see the photos, and the advices, but find hard to figure out the NUMBERS (wide, tall, pipes kind...). As we dont have CF here (only in Madrid and Las Palmas), I dont know wich dimensions should it have. At the moment I only need place for 6 people. The gym is tiny: 250 square feet.

Anyone wants to share some info and ideas? I will apreciate it greatly.

Re: Pull-up bar structure design.

Francisco - for the actual design that will depend on what sort of rig you are after. For example, will it be free standing, mounted on a wall, hung from a ceiling?

Some of the dimension stuff is pretty standard though. For the bar itself, 1 or 1.25" pipe is widely used and pretty inexpensive to buy. I'd allow something like 3 feet (90cm) of bar for each person and support the bar every 6 feet at the most.

Given the small size of your gym I would suggest a wall mounted option similar to the Rogue system here

Maybe you could find a local welder or engineer that could build something similar.

Hope this helps

Cheers, kempie

I think I've got a pretty comprehensive solution posted at the link below, along with mechanical drawings, instructions for building, and a bill of materials:

Link is work and family safe.

Re: Pull-up bar structure design.

Go to a plumbing store and look for 1" (2.5cm) steel pipe. You can usually get it threaded so you can make you're own pullup bars with the right fittings.

Re: Pull-up bar structure design.

Jeff - I'm guessing that your rig may be a little large for Francisco's 250 sq ft box but I must say that is a great rig and even better article on it's construction. Just beautiful!!

Mike - that's exactly how i expected to do things when I built my first rig. Alas things are different outside of the US. We can only dream of the hardware stores you guys have in the States. Almost certainly have to find a specialist metal supply yard in spain.

Cheers, kempie

Re: Pull-up bar structure design.

Francisco,

I live in Palma and have been looking for Crossfit classes or a partner.

Are you offering these?

Marcus

Re: Pull-up bar structure design.

Question, to anchor the base of my treated 4x4's to the floor in my garage, is there a commercial device out there? i looked around but was unable to find anything? I was thinking of having my local welder guy come up with something for me.

Thanks
