- Free-standing pull-up/dip/calisthenics station – what do you recommend?
I’ve scrubbed my gym membership to concentrate on yoga and riding – and I’m now ready to add in some minimalist bodyweight sort of exercises. It strikes me that having some means for doing pull ups, dips and so on would be fabulous.
I have some space (not loads, but probably enough) in the flat for this. For all sorts of dull reasons I can’t/won’t come at anything wall mounted or that clips onto a door frame.
Without spending all the money, do I have any options? What have you got?Posted 4 months agoJay76Member
I’ve got an identical one to the eBay link and it’s pretty decent.
Need to make sure it’s on a level surface or it will wobble a bit, particularly when doing dips. Best to put it on some rubber or foam matting.
Think I paid about £50 for it a couple of years ago and for that sort of money got nothing to complain about.Posted 4 months ago5thElefantMember
Cheers 5th – bizarrely hadn’t thought of ebay. That’s the sort of thing. Any experience of it?
Not that one in particular. I’ve used something similar for the last 25 years though…
Have a look at similar options. I’m sure that one would do but you can get more substantial ones for a bit more.Posted 4 months agosirromjSubscriber
Olympic Rings are great. I admittedly don’t use mine very often, but really glad I’ve got them for when I do. Just need somewhere convenient to attach them, which isn’t always possible.Posted 4 months ago
Failing that, find a site refurbishment and pull a load of wood out the skip and go DIY on a dips/inverted row stand.
