Question Home made CF equipment...

Hi guys and girls,

Not really to sure where to post this so I thought'd I throw it in here. I

I started Crossfit training this past fall and fell in love with it. Currently all my workouts have been done in a gym. Lately I've been getting sick of going to the gym and thought I need to spice it up by taking my training outdoors for the remainder of the winter and soon into the summer (plus it'll allow the pup to get exercise too).

I was curious if any of you area already performing the majority of your WOD's outside. If you are, what kind of equipment have you constructed yourself or bought?

For example: - a few sets of dumbbells
- a large tire with a backpark strap for sprints
- 24' - 32' box

I dont have a problem trasporting larger objects...so any types of equipment that you guys think of or have made please let me know. Pictures would be great as well! Thanks a lot!

Stay safe, Train hard!

Re: Home made CF equipment...

I do the vast majority of my workouts either in my 800 sq ft apartment or outside or a combination of both. This is accomplished with a few basic peices of equipment:

Homemade wooden power rack with pullup bar and rings
7' Standard bar and plates
adjustable spin-lock dumbbells and plates
a bench
a swiss ball
a jump rope
400m, 800m, ect courses mapped out in my parking lot

The only thing above you couldn't carry with a pickup truck is the power rack, although with some 5 gallon buckets, cement, and 4x4's you can build a portable rack for cheap. Plyo boxes, kettelbells, tires, ect are all highly portable and will serve you well in your garage or livingroom as well if there is 2 feet of snow outside.
