Re: Building Pull Up Bar vs. Buying


Suggest you search the forum; there are lots of great posts on different approaches to building custom pull-up bars. Most are quite inexpensive and strong as all get out.

@ Dustin Aubin

Hi Dustin,

I received your question about York bumpers in the PM you sent me but I was unable to answer it as your account appears to be set to not accept PMs in response. So, if you would like a...

Re: Glenn Plendlay is rad

Re: MBTI Test Results of Crossfitters

INTJ - nice to see other INTJers out there as well. I had been led to believe this was very much a minority category.

Re: ATTN: Pierre Auge

Dunno Chris, I'm not in Ottawa anymore but I have been watching for the CFM site to come back up (it hasn't) and also watching the Crossfit NCR site for updates (there haven't been any lately).

Hi Bob,

This question has been asked a few times before, so you will find a lot of opinions if you do a quick search of the forums.

Having said that, my preference is still for the Muscle...

Re: Shoulder flexibility for the olympic lifts

Shoulder dislocates with a simple 6 foot dowel have made the world of difference for me. I couldn't even get the bar into a good OHS position until I started doing them.

Re: Where am I going to hang these things?

I'd recommend throwing a pair of snap links on the end of the straps. That way you can quickly throw the straps over a bar (like the pull-up bar on a power rack) and clip back on the straps...

Re: Review of York Press Squat stands

Allison rocks!

Thanks for the review Ahmik. I've been thinking of getting these to replace my Northern Lights squat stands, which are nice enough but lack the lower position for bench press.

Re: Pendlay Elite Bars

Beautiful looking bar - I am suffering bar lust again.
