pommel horse?

I purchased a pommel horse and what looks like a really decent older barbell.

Is there any way to tell what kind of barbell it is?


Would love to know how I could learn to train on the pommel horse. Also thought I might be able to rig something to wall to turn it into a ghd as it does take up quite a bit of space. The horse is solid as a rock.

any suggestions would be great

I think the horse would be a worthy addition to any CF'rs bedroom just think of the possibilities. Add in a set of rings, we're talking Cirque du Soleil.

Please post pic's or video of your next romp---Gid De Up

I have been told by Louie Simmons that the original GHD was a Pommel Horse and stall bar!

What about the bar it has bearings and feels real solid.

Bad angle for construction purposes, but here's Alexeyev (wfs) using stall bars and some kind of horse for weighted GHR's. All you really need is to attach something to the wall to hook your feet under.
