    Default Pull Up racks?

    Hey, not sure if there is a name for this thing i want.

    I have a doorway pull-up bar but it apparently can only hold up to 80kg, i weigh 75ish and i want to start adding weights to the pull ups for resistance but i don't wanna break the thing.

    Just wondering if there is such a thing as a pull ups rack? something which can support heavy loads.

    cheers

    Have a look through this thread http://ausbb.com/workout-equipment/1...-home-gym.html

    Someone had an indoor pullup bar photo on there

    hmm could the power rack be used for pull ups? I ask since it obviously holds substantial weight.

    I managed to find these 'chin up stations' but they only hold a max of 100kg to 120kg, and cost between $70 to $150, is that too cheap to trust?

    That one looks a bit crappy mate, I doubt it would hold what it says, just looks cheap.
    Have a look at these ones from gym direct, allot of the guys on here have bought them and can vouch for their strength.
    Scroll down the page for the racks by themselves:

    Power Rack / Squat Rack

    This would be my choice, great basis for a full home gym.

    imo any rack with a lat pulldown probably sucks as a rack

    You don't have any trees or verandahs at home?
