Greetings to all fans of homemade products and those who just looked at the site in search of interesting ideas for themselves. If you love outdoor sports, you have your own house with a plot, then this article is for you. Agree, it's easier to work out with a pants or dumbbells in your garden than it is not known how long it is to get, and even almost across the city to the gym. In addition, you also need to purchase a subscription. This author's project will help you to save yourself from these problems.
I think that many of you who will like this idea will select materials during construction based on their preferences and capabilities. Therefore, I will not list everything that the author used, but I will name the most basic. Beam for uprights, cross-section approximately 140×140 mm, ready-made concrete blocks for the foundation, boards for the frame and flooring. For attaching sports equipment, the author used pipe cuttings and long bolts with nuts. By the way, at the end of the description I will add a couple of author's videos on making dumbbells and “pancakes” for the barbell.
The first thing the author did was install the racks. I prepared the site, completed the markings and drilled holes with a diameter of about 25 cm along it. I installed square pillars in them. Then he filled the holes with concrete. Until the solution completely solidified, the author fixed the racks in a strictly vertical position with rivers, which he nailed to the fence.
The next stage is the foundation. The author uses ready-made cement blocks, in total he needed 9 pieces. First, he placed them on the site, then, using a wooden lath and a level, he leveled them in height, but so that there was a slight slope of the future flooring in one direction. This is necessary in order for water to drain from the future flooring after the rain, the area is open-air, and there will be no canopy over it.

Next, the author has designed a frame for the flooring, but it is quite possible to do without it, there is nothing complicated here. After the design, the author proceeded to the installation. First I mounted the frame around the blocks. Then I mounted a grate inside it. I connected the boards using metal corners and long wood screws.

Next, the author covered the prepared base with boards. Since their widths were different, I had to tinker a little with the fit to completely close the frame. The author screwed the boards to the frame with self-tapping screws.

The next thing the author did was to fix a pull-up bar between the posts, which he made of a galvanized metal pipe. To install the crossbar, the author first made markings on the racks. Then I drilled a through hole in one of the posts according to the mark, and in the other only to the middle. Both holes, of course, are strictly at the same level. Having passed it through the holes of the pipes, the author fixed it with a bolt in the first post (in which a through hole was drilled), having previously drilled a hole for it also through, along with the pipe. On the reverse side, I screwed a nut onto the bolt. The crossbar not only holds securely, but also does not rotate.
Next, the author drilled holes in the racks ( the same number and on the same level) and with the help of bolts fixed pipe sections of the same length on the racks, these are pins (holders) for the rod.
Here, as promised by the video on making pancakes and dumbbells. The author decided not to buy equipment for training, but to save money and cast them out of concrete.
The final stage of construction. First, the author washed the platform and racks under pressure, and when everything was dry, he covered it in several layers with waterproof varnish.
