I'm trying to see things from your point of view, but I just can't get my head that far up your a$$.
A recent survey found that 1 in 3 women are just as stupid as the other 2.

I'm no crossfitter (I'm just not hardcore enough, and I'm not spec ops), but I like the look of those options shown. If theres one good thing that came out of crossfit, its the equipment, especially the modular stuff.My training log:

If your going to do regular vertical chin-ups (rather than the swinging kipper crossfit type) then I'd look at the wall or ceiling mounted rogue p-3 or p-4.
If kipper chin-ups are your thing then you will probably want a secured bar rather than a free standing setup... Kipper chin-ups involve alot of swinging and an unsecured standalone I'd think would be unstable. And the rogue p-3 would not allow for that swinging kipper motion. Your body would be flinging into the wall (*Edit: unless you mount the p-3 from the ceiling rafters). For kippers, that last link you posted or a ceiling mounted p-3, or something similar would probably be your best bet
I don't do kips so I am looking at getting the p3 for my regular chinups

heh this Triton thing http://www.tritonequipped.com/collec...te-with-j-cups looks like a super close copy of the Rogue 2x3 squat stands.
