One of the best pieces of equipment for at-home workouts that you can do with your spouse and family is a pull-up bar. In this post, we’re going to share how to build your own high-quality home made pull up bar .
A pull-up bar doesn’t take up a lot of space, but the strength and conditioning benefits you will get from using this simple piece of equipment are amazing.
One simple way to do an at-home workout with your spouse is to rotate between doing push-ups and pull-ups. I like to call these 20/10. 20 push-ups and 10-pull-ups for 12 sets. Use different hand positions to change it up and work different parts of your upper body. If you don’t have the strength to do full pull-ups on your own, put your feet on a chair for assistance while you build up your back and arms.
Working out like this allows both of you to be in the same room supporting each other while increasing your recreational intimacy.
Build Your Own Pull-Up Bar – Materials List
Here’s what you are going to need for your DIY home made pull up bar like I demonstrated in the video:
(1) 48″ x 1″ Galvanized pipe
(2) 16″ x 1″ Galvanized pipes
(2) 1″ 90 Elbows
(2) 1″ Wall flanges
(8) 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ Bolts
(8) 1/4″ Hex nuts
(8) 1/4″ Lock washers
This might look great to you, but you’re saying to yourself that there is no room in your garage for something else. Well, you are in luck.
If you’d rather have something that’s not physically attached and can be used inside your home, you can also pick up a doorway chin-up bar that will be effective in getting you stronger.
Whichever pull-up bar you choose, you will be able to increase your strength as you spend quality time with your spouse. It doesn’t get much better than that!
