Just wanted to introduce myself to the board. I've been doing judo for 20 years and lifting/running to supplement that. Just stumbled onto Crossfit recently and am really digging the concept.

I've got a pretty good size garage with a judo floor in it and some weight equipment. Thanks to this board, I realize I need to get even more stuff:-)

When I figure out how to post pics, I'll upload them and give Eugene a run for his money for coolest home gym:-)

You go Bret. If there's stuff to put in a home gym that I don't have I want to know about it. As you do your collecting feel free to drop me a line personally (onthesharpend@msn.com) or here if you prefer so everyone can evesdrop as to where I got things, what I like or don't like, brand preference...whatever. I really like gear...buying gear, talking about buying gear, discussing what gear is best...as a subscriber to the most toys rule I feel compelled to shame even the most compulsive gear collector. So you bring it on...I'll be here.

Oh, and welcome aboard. Firing off a challenge right out of the gate. Way to go.

At least I waited until my 2nd post before slapping you with my glove...

I don't think I'll catch you on the gear side anytime soon. You'll flip when you see my space though:-) I'd like to get some horse stall mats but my legs are so sore from a walking lunge, squat, back ext. WOD that I probably couldn't carry them.

I'll create the post in the equipment folder soon. I do have some equipment that I haven't seen posted there before that I think fits into the Crossfit concept.

At the risk of getting moved to equipment, to attach something to flimsy beams just drop a sturdier beam across the flimsy ones, bolt it down and attach to that.

Sorry to pig tail on Bret but I'm also new. How do I start a thread? I would also like to introduce myself and ask some questions on nutrition.
thanks

At the very bottom of the page (not this one but one of the forum pages) there is a "start new thread" link.
