    Just posted up the edit/update of my meals for today. Also just went to the lumber store (Lowes) to get some supplies to make my own pull up bar set up that can be set up almost anywhere and is super simple to make and on a low budget! When I start building it tonight, I will post up pics, measurements and notes.

    Homemade DIY (Do It Yourself) Pull Up Bar set-up.

    Materials:

    Four (4) 2' x 4' x 8' Econo Studs (Lumber) @ $1.50 each = $6.00

    One (1) small box of 2 1/2" Weed Screws @ $5.00 box = $5.00

    One (1) 1" x 60" Iron Pipe (Threaded on both ends) @ $15.00 = $15.00

    Two (2) 1" Iron Caps (Threaded) @ $1.50 each = $3.00




    The procedure is really simple and I will follow this post up with pics a little bit later as I make it.

    Step 1. Take two (2) of the 2x4x8's and cut them into 2' lengths and set aside.... these will be used to make simple stabilizer brackets.

    Step 2. Take the other two (2) 2x4x8's and mark the center four (4) inches down from just ONE (1) end.

    Step 3. Drill a one and a half (1 1/2) inch hole where you just marked on both 2x4x8's mentioned in Step 2.

    Step 4. Assemble Stability Brackets (See Pics shortly)

    Step 5. Set the two full length 2x4x8's with the holes towards the top that you just drilled.

    Step 6. Insert the 1" x 60" Iron Pipe into the holes you made. Make sure they go all the way through the holes.

    Step 7: Screw Threaded 1" Iron Caps to the ends of the Iron Pole


    DONE!!!!


    Additional Options:

    a. Make Additional Holes for Adjusting Height of Iron Bar

    b. Wrap Iron Bar in Duct Tape



    This is super simple, yet VERY effective and can easily be taken apart and put away if need be.

    As I mentioned I will post up some pics shortly.

    Enjoy!

    Building note. I am going to cut the stabilizers 2x4's that are towards the inside so I don't land on them. But other than that, these are working pretty good!

    I am sure there are other ways of making these, but I wanted something simple, inexpensive and something that can be made quickly.

    TOTAL BUILD TIME: 25 Minutes going slow.

    Replace "Push" in the URL with "Pull" and you'll be fine... (where it says 1Pushup.jpg, it should be 1Pullup.jpg, etc.)

    I have been thinking of using 4x4 post sunk in concrete to make one, but then it isn't portable at all. I'll have to take a look at your pics when I am home.

    Who? :P The third link, by the way, links to the first picture (it is linked to 1Pullup.jpg and not 3Pullup.jpg).
