Recently I looked at our pull up bar and realized that 1) it is annoying to use the pull up bar with all the stuff hanging off of it and 2) for me, the visual space felt cramped. The straps were always hanging down or wrapped around an arm of the treadmill to be out of the way. I needed to figure out how to hang gym rings in a accessible but more seamless way.
I wanted something to hang the rings and swing on where they could be pushed out of the way. This would give more visual space (making it feel bigger) and provide more mat space to work with. Super helpful for the workout sessions I host.
I had this genius idea to mount a pipe to the header beam and then thread our rings and kid swing onto that. When we aren’t using them, they can be slid all the way to our shelves, being stored for the next session. I LOVE IT. The pull up bar is now open for use with this pipe mount on the other side of the garage header beam.
The swing works even better for the kiddos now, they have room to pump. The rings transferred seamlessly. As for the pull up bar…my goal for 2015 is to do 10 pull ups in a row. Time to get to work!
