Making your own 'stall bar' in a rig

well I have wanted some stall bars for a while, mainly to work on leg raises and to help hit my abs.

I don't have the money for them or I might consider buying a pair. Rogue has some which look cool but in the end the price just wasn't / isn't in the budget for this daddy.

So for about $25 i built a stall 'board' to help keep the shoulders stable while working on those painful exercises.

Nice, do you keep that board in or take it in and out? About how long does it take to swap in?

I swap out as needed. Maybe 1-2 mins max. Unscrewing is fast and putting in isn't a pain after you get first hole / peg lined up.

I have noticed a difference after a week of daily just putting in some work. Flexibility does play a role and the strength required for a strict version versus a kipping one is a whole lot more. Also really requires those active shoulders.

Re: Making your own 'stall bar' in a rig

I was taking our gym's gymnastics class led by our coach who was a former Div1 gymnast. She was saying something about the stall bars and I was picturing what she wanted and thought, well, we have 5 trainer bar attachments, we can stack those on the rig and have the same effect, no? So we rigged up a few of those and it worked perfect for leg raise, also. Just another option if your gym already has those attachments.

Yeah I have seen that done before. Necessity is the mother of invention
