Freestanding stall bar

Recommended Posts

MARIO LOPEZ RUIZ

Having a stall bar is a must here, I cannot anchor anything to the floor/wall at my house so I looked into freestanding bar options, and this one is my favourite:

https://www.unghi-international.com/product-page/portable-stall-bars

It was used in argentina 2018 junior olympics, Its quite expensive, but I do not have any wood tools to make a DIY one.

Has anyone tried freestanding stall bars or have an idea of how good is this as an option?

I would use plates on the metal bars to make it more stable

Website can't be reached.  Free standing sounds neat if you got the space for it, I imagine it would take a lot of space to make it stable.  I don't know why you can't attach to a wall though, no studs in the wall to attach it?

Householder does not allow it unfortunetly, not because the wall isnt strong enough

I am finally going to buy a stall bar, Im going for wood, my height is 1.82cm so I think 2.4m-2.5m is what I should buy, here is one I like:

For foundations work, is it better to have all the bars in the same vertical plane or one behind and another more advanced like the one in the link?  Thanks!@Alessandro Mainente

All in the same vertical plane is ok.

Hey @MARIO LOPEZ RUIZ did you go for an option and fit against your wall after all?

I saw your original comment with the free-standing option but saw that you went for a fixed wall option in the end.
How did you work things how with your householder?

Yes I decided to buy a fixed one as it is cheaper and needs less space. With COVID-19 I can work from a house my family has in a village, and here I have more space and I do not have householder problems.

Hey @MARIO LOPEZ RUIZ, thank you for confirming that one.
I've another question for you. How do you deal with the ringwork required within the foundations? What was your solution for this?

Atm I attach them to a door frame with a door strap, and I will use the stall bars to attach them instead. In the future my best option will be to attach them to the ceiling

You can also buy a traction bar which you attach to the stall bars to be able to do pull ups and other exercises

Ok ace!

Can I ask, are you able to do german hangs off this setup you have at the minute?

And when you say a traction bar, am I right in thinking a small lip which you add to the wall ladder, which provides a small over hang from the ladder which will allow you to do an exercise like the German hangs?

i really appreciate your thoughts on this @MARIO LOPEZ RUIZ

I finally couldnt buy the traction, here is an example: 

https://www.artimexsport.com/es/spaliere.php?cod=000;001;260

Stall bars didnt arrive yet, and I dont know if yoy can do german pulls there as there is not that much space, I use to do these at a calistenic park near to my house, but with COVID I cannot go.

Lets see if someone in the forum has traction bar and if it is possible to do german hangs there. Maybe @Alessandro MainenteMainente or @Jeffrey BittnerBittner can tell
