His and Her Pull Up Bars
Roger Bates owner of http://www.assaultfitnessproducts.com/products/assault-airbike.html recently traded me two Stud Bars for his new Assault Bike. With naïve hesitation I accepted Roger’s 1 minute max effort assault bike challenge. By 30 seconds the machine had broken me down and shredded my legs to bits. Lactic acid onset by 45 seconds making the last 15 seconds a fine puree of pain. For an avid cyclist being broken by a stationary bike is humbling. The Assault bike would be more appropriate in a mid evil torture chamber than in your garage gym. I call it the assault and battery bike, it commits crimes on you. Now I understand why these bikes were in the warm up area of the Crossfit Regionals. It does a lot of work in a very short amount of time.
Roger’s garage has exposed 2X6 studs making for a quick and easy install. The studs were 10.5 feet off the floor making our large pull up bar the best option. One bar is set at the 39″ optional setting for the shorter user and the other is set at 31″ for taller users. Stud Bar is the only pull up bar company producing an extra long pull up bar designed for taller garage ceilings. You can also wall mount any of our pull up bars. Pull up bars were the first addition to Roger’s garage gym. Ceiling mounted pull up bars use voided space and allow for endless possibilities when mixed in with other movements.
