I am considering installing a pull up bar in my basement. My concrete ceiling has these anchors (not sure if it's the correct term, please check the picture) about 90cm apart from each other in a network that used to hold the metal frame of a drop ceiling.
According to the contractor that built the house, each of these anchors can hold 100-120 kgs.
I weight approximately 80 kgs.
The idea is to re-use 4 of these anchor holes to disperse my weight, possibly in an H shaped design:
- screw back the fasteners in each of the 4 anchor holes (corners of the H)
- connect 2x2 fasteners together in parallel with some sort of support bar (vertical sides of the H)
- connect the 2 support bars together in the middle with the pull up bar itself (horizontal line in H)
I'm not a professional so I would appreciate all sorts of comments or ideas about whether this is actually a sound idea or not.
