Id like to put a pull up bar in the garage. Ive go exposed rafters and walls. What would be my best option?

water pipe and floor flange

Is there particular size or thickness of pipe to look for?

I see they also sell them with bars that come strait out. Any advantage to these?

Spend $34 at Target and get an Iron Gym.

a buddy of mine has some of the rock climbing "rocks" with rope through them hanging from his garage. it definitely works grip strength.

Climbing finger board like a Moon or Metolius fingerboard? If this means nothing to you it's a board you hang above a door or suspend from ropes that you do pull ups on progressively using less fingers.
