Re: My garage gym!!!!

Mike, my kids use the space as much as I do. They hit the bags, climb the rope, and just go nuts. I am the cool dad in the neighborhood.

Re: My garage gym!!!!

Great pics and very intuitive ideas! Have you ever thought about building a reverse hyper? I have tossed around the idea, but don't know about the dimensions. Also I am limited on space.

Re: My garage gym!!!!

Great gym Tim! I am just starting my garage gym (see my plyo box instructable thread on this forum) and I hope my wife and kids will grow to love working out in it as much as I do.

Robert, I used to reverse hypers back in the day before I had ever seen one of the contraptions. I would hold a dumbbell between my feet and let them hang off the end of a bench. I still do them this way. I have seen some DIY plans for them on this site, but dont think I have the room for one now. I believe I have run out of room. Let me know if you have any luck or if you want to brainstorm some ideas.

Re: My garage gym!!!!

OK, My newest and coolest addition to my garage gym is an athlete sponsorship from JACO clothing. I sent a few pictures and a letter about me and the gym and got selected as a hybrid athlete. Crossfit, Mma hybrid. I have always loved there stuff and now you can see regular posts from my gym on the JACO facebook and twitter pages.

Re: My garage gym!!!!

Tim & Robert,

DIY reverse hyper = box jump with your tire (for sled drags) on the box. Then put a swiss ball in the tire. Saw it on the "End of 3 Fitness" blog. I have not tried it yet. I put it together and give it a try this week. It will work on your balance also.

Joe

Re: My garage gym!!!!

That sounds like it would work very well. Let me know if it works. Our new MMA coach is into Trx, so I am excited to try something new.

Re: My garage gym!!!!

Did you build those plyo box's yourself? I recently built a 24', 18' rotating box. Super heavy, your design looks great. Gonna have to try that, looks much lighter!
