Pull up bar for a big dude?

What do you guys use for a pull up bar at home? Looking for something thats not the typical in the doorway thing.

I have a pull up bar on the front of my Smith Machine, but also have something similar to this

That was all the things I used to use, except for a couple places with randomly secured piping.

I am looking for something compact and cheaper.

Good question, also ... how supportive ARE the doorway ones? I would hate to be focused on working out and have it slip ... or be scared its going to slip and not be able to concentrate ---

I don't think that I would trust one, especially when doing weighted pull ups.

If you have somewhere to mount it, there is also this style.

http://www.amazon.com/Maximum-Muscle...9215731&sr=8-4

and other variations for hanging from rafters if you have a basement with open ceiling.

I use one like that, but mine has another bar below the handles that has been welded on for support. I ripped it out of the wall.

6'5" larger frame, and to top it off 340ish so got some love handles as well.

here is a pic of me next to a 2010 Camaro for the slimming factor
http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos..._3170080_n.jpg


Average doorway, I go on my tippy toes and I am eye level with the top of the frame. I am going to have to cheat a little at first maybe hop up and continue the momentum with arms until I get stronger.

Wallmart has a bunch of the ones for doors, they say support 300# Read the reviews there was some cheap one for like $15 that keeps breaking and people falling(I LOL'd at that)

I dont like the ones for doors. I'm about 6' and weigh ~225 and I pulled the one we have out of the wall when we were doing our marine training. I suggest you spend a little more money and get better made one, and don't trust the Wally World products.

I agree being careful of wallyworld stuff.

The only door ones I woudl consider are the ones like this.

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ndingMethod=rr


I was just throwing it out there for those looking... I have no interest in door mounted stuff?


I was considering using my garage door frame but I am worried I might warp the c-channel.

Maybe I will make a pull up thing out of 2x4s and throw it in the back yard, hell maybe just go park style, get 2 fence posts, dig holes, put them in and throw a bar through the top. Ground is pretty sandy here though

I notice your IP address is from Multan, Pakistan. Nice try. I like your post in "Wheels and Tires" forum member tire review thread, where you indicate "I am having M&H drag radials and Cooper Zeon ZPT 245 40 18." How many drag strips are there in Pakistan? Or even, how many Camaros are there in Pakistan?
