I will definitely give it a good review after I get it.
Post a link to freestanding pullup rig?

I was a cold work out, that might have had something to do with it. I did drop it a couple times ( in the snow ) but it did snap at the handle. An scared the double under right out of me. Luckly I avoided crack myself in the head with the handle.

I made my own pretty cheaply. I got 4 20lbs bags of rubber mulch. 2 army laundry bags fit 2 of the 20lbs bags in each. Then I have a bigger army laundry bag for putting the two 40lbs in to make a single 80lbs bag.

A 20lbs bag of rubber mulch is around $9. I put it in some contractor strength plastic bags. I zip tied them closed and then duct taped around the zip ties. Then I put them in the laundry bags.

I got the mulch at home depot and the laundry bags from my ex-army wife. I bought another one at the surplus store for $4.

They are a little bulkier than the normal ones, but also the rubber feels better on your face.

I basically did this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d55aan6TMA (WFS)

see below for type of bags. the one on the top is one of the 40lbs bags which can fit into the one on the bottom. That way I can have a 20lbs/40lbs/60lbs/80lbs depending on what's needed.

For KB's my aders are great. Drop them on the ground all the time and they're fine. But I don't drop them on the handle

Re: Pulled The Trigger...

was going to say one db or kb or small plate with handle for swings but see you got a kb already

you could bunjee cord wrap your weight vest and sorta use it like a sand bag even swing it (have done that at the park)

I have access to chalk and never need it

one or two stall mats for the patio maybe but then you do have bumpers

a rolled up towel for an abmat sub

timer

a cheap set of 2.5, 5 and 10# steel plates and 1# steel collars for fractional adjustments

rower

a 6 ft rope from rogue or towel you can hang from your pullup bar

then we'll have matching gyms

Re: Pulled The Trigger...

UPS tracking says I should have the pull up bar by Monday- everything else by Wednesday. I am really looking forward to trying out the bar.
