Building a budget home gym pt. 2

To go with the new dipping bars I have now added a chin up bar in the garage. This was a more straightforward project.

First I cut a couple of plywood supports

Drilled a hole for the bar and fixed a few screws

Attached to two roof joists

Fitted bat grips and used a couple of Jubilee clips on the bar to the inside faces of the ply to prevent sideways movement

And then just hung out in the garage for a while

And for those of you wondering what all this has to do with cycling, and more specifically bike v car …

It turns out the dipping bars make a great bike workstand
