Here's another way to make a straight bar pull-up bar that would work on just about any type of power rack. This idea came from one of the readers of this website, Gus from New York.

Materials:

2 U-Bolts 3 inch pipe zinc plated ($2.30 each at home depot)

3/4 pipe x 10 feet galvanized cut at home depot into 51 inches

They only sell it by 10 feet so you have to have them cut it there, they do this for free unless you want knurling on the pipe which is not needed.

You end up with two 51 inch pieces and a piece of 18 inches.($12.97 at home depot) You can set both 51 inch pipes if wanted and do hammer chin ups but you would need 2 more u bolts.

Overall price is $ 18.57

Plus NY sales tax $ 1.60

Total $ 20.17

Webmaster's Note

If you are worried that the thin plate on the U-bolt won't be strong enough to hold your weight (it probably will without a problem) just put the pipe on top of the rack and then secure it with the U-bolt. Of course you'll need more headroom then.

Gustavo's idea inspired me to make a fat bar pull-up bar for my powertec power rack. I used my homemade thick barbell which is a 1-1/2” x 6' piece of galvanized pipe that has an OD of 1 7/8”. I used 3.5” U-bolts to secure the pipe in place.

Thick bar pull-ups are tough!

At a bodybuilding trade show, Fatgripz gave away a free pair of fatgripz to anyone who could do 15 pull-ups while using them.
