|Multiple Studbars in action.|
If you have not heard of the Stud Bar pull-up bar, then let me brief you:
-Commercial grade 14 gauge steel.
-Triangulated gussets (it's put together well/very strong)
-Holds 600 pounds!
-Mounts into your ceiling joists.
This pull-up bar is the perfect addition to the garage/home gym, and is even endorsed by Greg Glassman, the founder of Crossfit. It is also showcased in photo galleries on their website in garage gyms everywhere.
The stud bar pull-up bar can be installed in ceilings from 8 to 10 feet high. It is 48" inches across and the bar diameter is 1 1/4". This is a well thought out piece of exercise equipment with a lifetime warranty, manufactured to withstand a beating and give you a great, primal workout. At under $150 dollars, it is the best value in the 'semi-permanent' pull-up bar category.

Pullups are a great barometer for upper body strength, affecting the latissimus dorsi, biceps, wrist flexors and extensors, and even the pectorals, posterior deltoids and the abdominal wall. Don't worry if you can't do a pull-up yet, having the bar there will help you transition into one, even if you have to use a chair and do assisted pull-ups in the beginning.
If you are already proficient with pull-ups and like to do variations, including kipping pull-ups, muscle-ups and so on, your best option is a semi-permanent installation like the Studbar pull-up bar.
