Woah!!!!!!! What a great gym! How did you make that kettlebell, if you dont mind me asking? Hopefully I'll be able to build my own dream gym someday.
Still running behind; KB swings/situp throws today. 70#, 26:03. Kelly how did you do this one so fast? I'm truly in awe. Great work to all you speedy ones.
Are those home made bumper plates on the wall?
For total time, 21-18-15-12-9 rep rounds of:
80-pound barbell thruster
35-pound dumbbell swing
(a hybrid Sat./Sun. WOD)
30:20 (mostly broken sets)
It's funny how everybody is mesmorized by the dream gym; including myself of course.
Thanks for the complements. Home away from home.
The wood training plates are made of two layers of 5/8” ply, bolted and glued with pipe insulation on the ends. I use them for training the first pull. They are surprisingly tough.
The kelltebell handle was bought from Rick Couture at this site: http://members.shaw.ca/rickcouture/kb1.htm. He posted here this past summer under the equipment forum. I think it is the next best thing to a real kettlebell.
Not a day off, but I look forward to the next rest day. Today 33 set of 3 deck pullups in 33 minutes, I was also adding sets of 8 pushups for the the first 15 or so sets and then I realized this was supposed to be a recovery day so I eased up and just finished strong on the the pulls. Deck pullups fry my grip because I can't wrap my hands around anything. We will see what tomorrow has in store!
Heh nice. Maybe I'll grab a pic of my own home gym and send it in.
Wow, that's so cool! What a great gym! I love seeing home gyms like these, ...very inspirational!
Your gym rocks! Now this is a CrossFit style gym. One day I'll have a place with a gym just like this......for now I have CrossFit's facility to train at, and I count that as a blessing in my life.
You're awsome dude, keep it up!
