Any old timers here recall the free standing pull bar set up Steve Maxwell was touting pre 2005?

I remember that one, and the Tactical Athlete Pull-Up System that Martone has. Both are pretty steep for what they are. You could probably cobble together something just as good for a tenth the cost if you're at all handy.

Thanks Al. I think that it was Martone that modeled that Tactical Athlete Pull-Up contraption.

I bought the above in the early 2000s. At the time I was renting a building with high ceilings and wanted a way to do indoor pull ups.

I cannot recall what I paid for it, but do recall that it was pretty steep. Equipment options are much better now than then, but I still do not see an indoor pull up set up that is sturdy, easily transportable and reasonably inexpensive.

I have had mine in storage for almost three years and cannot find some of the bolts. I am pretty sure I got what I need at Home Depot yesterday.
