Awesome setup Jonathan.

I'll look into building that rack soon Dennis, sounds like you know what you're doing, I don't :whistling:; those pics would probably help a ton, thanks!

I just blew about $60 on ankle weights, a lifting belt/chain/carabiner (for weighted PUs), an ab wheel, PVC paralettes and a basketball. I find it pretty funny how the sports authority has loads of candy and soda for sale right near the cash register.

Hey Jonathan, where did you get that squat rack that allows you to mount your rings like that?? That's awesome!

Re: Dennis's gym = "I am Jim's raging jealousy."

Very cool gym Dennis, I have a similar style squat rack, though mine is made out of 6x6's. Nice rings too, I might attempt to make a pair!!

Mine's a work in progress. 40'x30' and I'm slowly filling it with "stuff."

I wish I know to post pictures.

All the best,
Arden

Regarding the picture above of the bar resting in the triangle cut from behind the 4x4, the bar always will force the wood apart and put stress on the bolts, expecially with the impact of a heavy load being placed there. An angled lead-in with a notch at the bottom might last longer, so when the bar comes to a stop, there is no force prying the parts apart.

Paul, You are probably correct. If I made the cut turn outward and eliminate the void under the bar, it would have given a flat spot for the bar to rest on and the load would be straight down on the short 4x4 and not creating a prying force between the two pieces.
