Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

I've finally got mine started. I still have some things to get, but this is certainly functional now!

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

These are really giving me great ideas. Maybe I don't need to park my car in the garage after all.

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

Hope it's ok to revive this thread. Thought maybe somebody might be interested in this.

We recently moved into a new house, and I needed a place to do my pull-ups, muscle-ups, wall-balls, handstand push-ups, etc.

I ended up designing what I call my backyard CrossFit jungle gym and had somebody build it for me since I didn't have all the necessary tools and knowledge.

This is how it turned out (all photos wfs):

The full album with more and larger photos is here:

http://picasaweb.google.com/abyron/B...eat=directlink

The pad is poured concrete, 15 x 10 feet.

The ring mounts are 10 feet off the ground to allow enough head clearance when doing muscle-ups.

The pull-up bars are 8 and 6.5 feet high.

The crossbar with the climbing rope mounts is 12 feet high (didn't go higher to avoid the contraption being taller than the garage).

The wall-ball targets are 8 to 9 feet for women, 10 to 11 feet for men. The gap between forces you to aim properly because if you aim too high or too low, the med ball will either go through the gap or bounce off the edge.

The plate for the handstand push-ups is 5 to 7 feet high.

All four posts are anchored with concrete 2-3 feet deep in the ground. The two posts holding the wall-ball targets are integrated into the pad so you have a flat surface to stand on for the wall-balls and HSPUs.

The guys who constructed it did a great job. It's very sturdy and works perfectly.

All the equipment is stored in the third garage bay and I just drag out what I need:

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

This is my pride and joy... Only thing added since this album was another couple of Olympic Bars (1 powerlift specific, 1 olympic lift specific), more plyoboxes, No Limits gym clock and some medicine balls. I am holding out for Christmas to snag a legitimate GHD

Seriously awesome. Great design. I wouldn't be surprised to hear you got some phone calls/emails from gear manufacturers wanting to use your design.

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

Finally got frustrated enough to just set this up at home for my wife, son, and me to do WOD at the same time. took all of the misc equipment I had and put it all in one place (and quite a bit from santa this year) concept 2 is on it's way now and i still need to make some plyo boxes and some plate racks. I'm anxious to get some feedback on the layout from everyone...there is a rope (unfortunately only 10' clear) and a speed bag that are not in the pictures. what else am i missing?
