How can I install a Pull-Up Bar on a brick wall?


I think what I'd do is try and spread the load across several columns and several rows. I'd get myself some lumber, say 2x6 pine/fir, and stain and seal it. I'd run two 48" lengths vertically behind the mounting plates of the bar, with the bulk of the 2x6 upward of the bar (or tight against the ceiling, as space allows). This lessens pullout force on the system.

Fasten the lumber to the masonry using sleeve anchors or toggle bolts, 3-4 per side. Try to hit the central area of the blocks to reduce the chance of blowout. Use an appropriately sized masonry bit and hammerdrill with light force.

Anchor the bar to the lumber using 7/16" x 1-1/2" lag screws, or run 3/8" carriage bolts through the lumber from behind before you mount it to the masonry.

you need to understand how a wall is made. the surface of your wall is probably 5/8" sheetrock. (and yes, it's very weak) Underneath the sheet rock, there should be 2 x 4 vertical wooden studs spaced 16" apart (center to center)

Currently you have screwed the pull-up bar into the sheetrock, but missed the studs.

What you need to do is find the studs and position your pull-up bar so that you can screw/bolt it into the studs.

The easy way to find the studs is to use a stud finder. if you know someone in the construction industry, the probably have one.

Alternately, you can sometimes find the studs by tapping on the wall. it will sound differently in the area near the stud. once you think you know where the stud is, hammer a small finishing nail thru the sheet rock to find the exact location of the stud. Once you know were it is, the next studs will probably be 16" on either side. check to make sure with the small finishing nail.

Hope this helps and good...

Yes, Muscle-Ups are also possible. Depending on your grip position you can either use the included multi bar and turn it 180° around or buy the additional straight bar. The grip position of the dip bars of the multi bar is 459mm. Should your Muscle-Up grip position be in this area, we recommend the straight pull-up bar.

For the indoor usage it depends on your ceiling if you have enough space between the bar and ceiling.

Since our recommended pull up bar screws have a length of 100mm and the drilling holes should be 110mm, we recommend a wall thickness of at least 180mm.

Each pull-up bar for the wall mount is accompanied by a drilling template, on which the...

You should think about how big the bar is going to be, how easy it will be to fit and use, and also, where is it going to go.
It's important to choose a bar that is appropriate for your weight and height.
All good bars come with a weight limit recommendation from the manufacturer so it's really important to follow these for you own safety.

It will also depend on what type of exercise you want to carry out as some bars only allow certain movements while others are more flexible, so you need to know what you plan to use it for, before you make a purchase.

Different Types Of Pull Up Bars

When you first start looking for a pull up bar, the amount of jargon and different kinds you come across might be overwhelming so here is a quick summary of the different types of pull up bars and how they could work for you.

There are two basic types of pull-up bars on the market: removable and permanent. Removable pull-up bars are relatively lightweight, inexpensive solutions for those who do not want to drill or permanently mount their pull-up bar. These types of pull-up bars mount inside of a standard doorway and are secured in place by leveraging your own body weight to hold the device tightly against the wall and trim/molding during the exercise. Removable chin-up bars require no drilling or fixed mounting, but permanent pull-up bar installations do. While they are tougher to install than a removable model, permanently mounted pull-up bars support more weight and usually last longer if installed correctly.

Though it's not a difficult process, specific materials are required to safely hang items on a brick wall. Brick is a very strong building material, but it's also very porous, and improper handling can cause it to easily crack, crumble, or break.

Picture hangers for concrete and brick are the best option for hanging most artwork. Also called brick hooks or brick clips, these specialized picture hangers typically come in sizes able to support up to 30 pounds (13.6 kg), 50 pounds (22.7 kg), and 100 pounds (45.4 kg). The hangers are easy to use and readily available at most home improvement superstores as well as smaller hardware stores.

A brick and concrete picture hanger consists of a small piece of gold-, silver-, or bronze-colored metal, with a hook-shaped bottom and a hole that penetrates the top. Also included with the hanger set is a brass-plated, unbendable nail that has an extremely sharp tip. Installation is quite easy: after positioning the hanger on the brick...

A great workout doesn’t have to require elaborate or expensive exercise equipment. A regular regiment of pull ups will help you develop the muscles in your arms, back, shoulders and chest.

Pull up bars are a great way to exercise at home. They’re inexpensive and easy to install in a doorway or on a wall. By varying your grip width and style you can target specific muscle groups for a total upper body workout.

Generally speaking, a wider grip will target your back muscles while a narrower grip targets your chest and arms. Pull ups bars aren’t limited to pull ups, either. You can also use them to do sit ups, side twists and more. By working against your body weight you’ll always have proper resistance to build muscle.

There are three different types of pull-up bars:

Doorway – This bar uses leverage to securely fit into any standard-size doorway Wall-Mounted – These are mounted directly into brick or the studs behind drywall Freestanding – A pull up bar can...

Hello Waltz, I've got the answer to your question... no muss, no fuss. You need to go to the plumbing and hardware departments at your local Home Depot, and pick up the following:

-two floor flanges,one inch

-one piece of pipe threaded on both ends, also one inch

-six 1/4 inch drop in anchors

-a hammer drill, if you don't have one, and a 3/8 inch masonry bit

Get someone to cut the pipe to your measurements and re-thread the cut end. The flanges screw onto the pipe, and voila, one chin up bar.

The measurements need to take into account that you lose some length as you screw the flanges on the pipe, but minus 3/4 inch off the length should do the trick.

Place the bar where you want it,mark and drill your holes.

I didn't tell you what length hex bolts to get, because you'll need to measure the thickness off the flange and the length of the anchor to get the correct length of the bolt, but it will be 1/4 x the length you come up...

That's a wide opening. A pipe would bend and flex too much. Get a 6' (solid steel) weight bar. Cut 2" or so off the end. I just found a bar for $32, online, though I would look locally, no shipping.
To attach it and make a fixed bar, that won't move, try something like this. Take two 2" x 6"s, cut to the right height. Drill or cut a hole, slightly larger than the diameter of the bar, at the correct distance from one end (the bottom) of the 2x. Attach one of the 2x's to one wall. Lag screws with washers and lead anchors should be secure enough. Insert one end of the pole into the affixed 2x, grab the other 2x, insert the free end of the pole, attach to the other wall.
You could use a slot, open at the top, to make it removable, put plywood between the 2x and the wall to prevent messing up the wall, etc.
I might recommend a piece of plywood, 5" x 5" x 1/2", glued and screwed to the 2x just below the hole to prevent the board from...
