    Re: Home made gym equipment

    I took 2 pieces of masons scafold frames put them in a V welded them together and welded pegs to the outer legs (beefed up legs as well) I do my dips in the back of it close to the V. Squats in the back of the V, and bench on the peggs on the outer V. I have a rope and wheel I got from a roofer friend and do my lats and tri's with that. Dont have pictures, and its not pretty but Ive done it like this for a while. All my weights are over age 20 it all sits outside. Crude is better for me. I love it. No gym bullshit, just me my sons and a radio.

    Its cool to lift outside as well regardless of weather. Its all under an aluminum carport/shed to keep snow and rain off us.

    I have a cousin who did some prison time and when he came home he still fills up 50 gallon trash bags with water and uses them like dumbells. It's funny as shit.

    Ill go get the car for you guys. I can drive like a MF. No in all seriousness, if you have to defend yourself you may not be in a climate controled enviornment, might as well push yourself in all types of weather/elements. Keeps the muscles guessing too.

    My Dad had to do hard time and really is the inspriation behind the routine and its effects on the body. Guys that have been locked up are a very good source for knowledge on things like this. Bottom line if you want to work out youll find a way.

    Re: Home made gym equipment

    i thought this was going to be a serious thread. you mean "red neck gyms?"

    had one in georgia while in the military over at a buddies house. what we didn't have with weights, we'd make due with other things. didn't have a bench press, so we did pushups instead. except we'd load cinderblocks on our shoulders to increase weight.
