Extremely sturdy DIY pull-up bar

Ever since the lockdowns started, I stopped going to the gym.

After a while, I noticed that I started to lose some of the strength that I had and as the months in isolation passed by, I started to gain weight.

Determined to do something about this, I started to exercise at home and periodically ride my bicycle, but for some reason, I always missed the pull-up bar from the gym.

And to be honest, I'm not able to do a lot of pull-ups but they do feel good.

So, I bought some steel, gathered the tools, and on a weekend, I made myself a pull-up bar that is now permanently mounted in my home office.

Feel free to check the video of the making of the pullup bar in the video below.
