    pull up / dip station

    hi all...

    i workout at home in an awkwardly constructed garage...
    i really need a way of performing dips and pull ups..

    i've been looking in to pull up / dip / vkr stations.. but the main problem is that they're too high...

    does anyone know of a good pull up/dip station thats adjustable in height? or have any suggestions as to how i could start using these exercises through other means?

    wall mounts arn't a possibility due to the poor state of the garage...

    cheers much,

    narb.

    You could buy a pull-up bar at Walmart for like $20 I think; attach it to your door. My friend has a pull-up bar at his at house and its suppose to hold like 400 pounds.

    Pull up bar: Do you have a garage? 2 double bars on each side used to open the garage door, swing a curl/bb bar over it and there you go
    Dips: 2 chairs, 2 of anything that is high enough and paralell

    I have a rafter mounted pull up bar in my basement I got off ebay. It was overpriced but I got it anyway because I liked it

    I've seen a doorway chin-up bar that doesn't require any mounting, it uses your weight and leverage to hold it to the door. I haven't used but it looks like it may solve your problem.
