Getting Ready for the Games in your Garage

Hey Guys! I was just wondering, wanting to get some stories about challenges people are facing trying to get ready for the 2012, or how you got ready for 2011. Especially if it was in your garage gym at home, please include your whole experience , how far you got out of the open etc... I am trying to compile some more stories for an article

Cheers and Thank you

Re: Getting Ready for the Games in your Garage

I know this is an old post but I did 4/6 WODs last year at my house. I don't regularly attend a gym and workout pretty much exclusively at home. I have been building up my gym over the past 2.5 years and have pretty much everything I need. If rope climbs come up though I am screwed. Last year I was in my basement with limited head room for muscle ups and wall balls. This year I am out in the garage so I have more room for those things especially. I did not make it to regionals but am training to make a run at it this year. We'll see how it goes.

Ben was 3rd overall at the 2011 games. Still trains mostly at his garage gym, as far as I know.

Good luck!
