Re: Ned's Gym

Steve,
I am looking for a rack as well. I am looking at the Rogue S2, Vulcan Strength or a custom welded one. Until I saw this post! How do you like it? How is the quality? Do the band peg/dip bars work as advertised? On the dimensions, is it 6' deep x 4' wide? If so, is the actual rack built at about the 3' mark. Have some space/position issues in the garage. Any other info would be great.

Your set up looks awesome. Would love to have that room!

Thanks in advance for your info and answers.

Re: Ned's Gym

Mike,
I'm slowly working on review of the rack and should have it done tomorrow. I'll briefly answer your questions though.

How do you like it?
I really like it so far.

Quote:
How is the quality?
not too bad for an import (Chinese) product. theres a few quality control issues, but nothing major

Quote:

yup, theres some cool things you can do with it

Quote:
is it 6' deep x 4' wide?
yes, 6 deep x 4 wide (47", 43 inside posts) x 8 tall. the spotter arms are 2ft long
the mats in the photo measure 10x12

Re: Ned's Gym

Latest addition to the "gym" is an Aerodyne! Its kept in the living room, but I count it as part of the gym.
I've also added more pics of the gym.
From in the garage, looking in and lastly, my driveway (great for farmers walks)

Re: Ned's Gym

Last question for you. How high is the top PU bar from the ground?

Thanks,
Don

I have the upper (standard bar) at 7'4" which gives me 15" of clearance to the ceiling. The fat bar is mounted just below it.

Re: Ned's Gym

Added two more stones. 70 and 135. traded a set of farmers walk handles for them. not a bad deal considering the price I got the handles for:

The new ones are on the outside of the 95 and 115 stones.
