My buddy helped me install the bar on the block wall in my garage instead of the complicated stud situation. It turns out to be a better fit because as I set up my own cross fit area in my garage, the bar on the wall has it’s places and I can do moves and stretches with wall assist or not.
I went to my local hardware and got some 3/8 X 3″ tap-cons and a 5-16″ drill bit for the pilot holes and it sealed the deal. The bar is very sturdy. Granted I weigh about 160 lbs, but it easily supports all the acrobatics I’ve been doing on the bar. I’m 6 feet tall, and when i hang on to the bar, my feet are about 2 or 3 inches from the floor. I set it up that way because I like to hop and grab the bar.
