I am moving into a house, and planning to install some gym equipment in a garage. In particular, I want to add a pull up bar, made out of galvanized steel 1" pipes, and hang the gymnastic rings.
The ceilings are 11" and are dry-walled with the 1 5/8"x7" joists, spread 16" apart.
Most of the recommendations are to use eye-bolts or lag bolts. I am afraid that 1 5/8 joists are not wide/strong enough to hold the weight of the rings or the diy pull-up.
