Re: my poor mans rings

Look good, they'll get the job done. Is that rope beefy enough? It's prob fine for dips and strict PU but if you start kipping or doing MU on them you might consider looking for some thicker rope to steal.

Good job.

Re: my poor mans rings

lol Steve good work. Kipping muscle up will snap that rope though, no?

Can you make me a squat rack out of stolen parts

Those rings are gym-dandy.

The skin on the outside of your elbows
will be glad when you get those straps.
