This month's CFJ talks about using bands and block & tackle to solve bodyweight exercises. While I am completely befuddled as to how to set up or use a block and tackle,I do know where to get cheaper bands than JS:

Can anyone provide pictures or instructions on the whole pulley/block & tackle/harness hookup biz? The CFJ, while intriguing and clearly innovative, was ultimately frustrating since I couldn't figure out what was at the "other end" of all those bands and harnesses.

Thanks for the link Lynne. Those are better prices. Plus since everybody I know calls me Woody, I just have to get the shirt.:wink:.

Very similar bands are available for a fraction of those prices from Mcmaster carr. Search for ballet banding and go to the bottom of the page.

Or, unless you want to tie up a person in a tu-tu, you could search for Pallet banding! :biggrin: Good link, aptdwler

Sorry, I need to learn to spell LOL...

Also, if you have a gym, and plan to spend around $250. Check out:

They have a ton of sizes, even custom available, but you must order over, I think, $250. They sent me a generic email saying my order was too small a while back:-(
