It is the same to me. I have not been on the AD4 for a while but I find the AD4 an AD6 suck the same amount (suck in a good way). I ran through my first AD6 workout today and forgot how humbling it is. I found the differences between the 2 are aesthetics. The AD6 just looks nicer. Other than that, not really any difference. I don't know if I am mis-remembering but the AD6 wind turbine seems smaller than the AD4 (Smaller but equally brutal). The overall dimensions for everything else are practically the same from what I remember though.

New torture device arrived today! I was supposed to receive my dumbbell rack as well but it did not show.

Nice. Let me know what you think. I have one on my list for early 2013 (along with a yoke, an axel, another bar and some comp bumpers).

How much was the airdyne?

I LOVE the Ski-Erg. I have done a couple workouts with it. It is brutal and amazing at the same time. I love Rowers, but this is on a whole new level. Definitely get one!

The Airdyne was around $1000 shipped from Rogue Canada (Everything in Canada is EXPENSIVE). The Ski-Erg ran me an additional $1500 with all of the Tax and UPS fees.

Re: My Garage Gym Project

Dumbbell Rack arrived today. Just built this bad boy and rearranged the gym. The Ski-Erg went into the corner of the gym and fits like a glove! Gym project is nearly complete!

Re: My Garage Gym Project

A quick update:I have been anxiously waiting for my new sets of Kilo-Kettlebells from Rogue (2x16kg,24kg,32kg) . Something happened with the shipment a few weeks ago so they have been delayed a bit. I should be getting them by the end of the week hopefully. Pics to follow.

Also...I have received several heavy boxes this week from Rogue at my doorstep with my girlfriends name on it. So it looks like I will be getting some other toys for Christmas! Pics for those will be posted up on Christmas morning. I am thinking about making a video tour of my gym to submit to HQ. Before I do that I will also post the full inventory in this thread of what I have in my current setup.

-Matt
