Upside Down Monkey Chin Up Bar In The Power Rack

I just mounted the monkey chin up bar upside down in my power rack.

Mounting the chin up bar upside down has increased the height from the top of the bar to the ceiling, which means I don’t have to worry about hitting my head on the rafters if I pull myself up too high (which has happened before).

Also, now it's lower to the ground, I don't need to deal with the hassle of stepping on and off a stool to do chin ups or pull ups anymore!

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
