I've got a 10x20 space with a 9' ceiling that is going to serve as the family gym. We already own the treadmill and it's a political problem getting rid of it at this time. Is the GHD worth the floor space in this situation?

I'm debating on the floor. Right now it's a pretty lumpy patch of concrete +/- 1/2". The thought is either use some of the thinset that they use when preping for tile floors or to use some stone dust to level it out before putting down stall mats. The other alternative is to just do the lifting platform and put down plywood on top of 1x4 sleepers for the rest. Cost appears to be about the same.

I wish I had a GHB bench, but space in a garage IS tight. I substitute Romanian Deadlifts for the hamstring/glute work and other exercises like windshield wipers, L-situps, hollow rock, etc. for the ab work.

I have a design for one that if Lincoln you simply modify your plyobox design slightly, you can use it as a GHD. Also as Jerking Blocks or pulling blocks. Let me know if you're interested.

Not that you need the urging, Pierre, but I'm very interested to see what else you have cooked up!

GHD- Work off the side of your power rack, put the saftey bars on the same side wide enough to put your feet through and lock your heels on the top one between the bars. Put your bench on top of two plyo boxes...need the hight so you do not hit the floor when bending over at the waist. I wish I had a picture for you. Works great, but it is hard to do glute sit ups because the bench is flat not round.
