Re: Help, just want to look better and be fitter

nowhere near enough detail on your food intake. What are you using as "filler" if lean protein s expensive? Bogging down on tons of carbs, you're not going to get lean.

Re: Muscle-ups

Re: Back yard rope climb and pull-up station

why the brackets in the footings instead of just using longer uprights and sinking them into the footings?

Re: Anybody build their own Olympic Rings?

Jesus! just buy wood rings they're not THAT expensive! I'm a fan of DIY stuff when it makes economic sense. These seem like they would take a ton of time to make.
