have any of you ever made a pull up bar yourself?
I'm going to make a DIY pull up bar in order to save time (traveling to and from gym), money (gym membership fees) and results (am too lazy to go to the gym 2+ times per week).
I'm thinking about making the one called 'Free Standing Chinup Bar II' in the link below: http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/shenandoah/Grunt/Bodyweight.html
with this simple design I can do all sorts of pull ups, and I can attach rings and do dips and all other kind of crazy stuff.
The only think I'm pondering is what design would be sturdier, that one mentioned in the link or building one with a side view like this --> /\ instead of | (I really hope this makes sense, lol).
Any help, tips, critiques, encouragements and/or comments are welcome.
Edit: I live in a studio appartment, so this question is regarding an indoor DIY pullup bar.
