As in the Houston-based rapper?
His home gym looks almost as good as mine.
where is all the 2011 games footage?
Daniel Frankel's home gym is legit. Proof that where there is a will, there is a way. Thanks for sharing and inspiring, Daniel.
Was that a gun in the home gym video at 4:43?!?!! LOL!
Yes, that was a pistol, not just one but two! I had to look at it a few times. One is a toy revolver, noted by the orange barrel cap. The other appears to be a pellet/BB pistol.
Great job Daniel! GG, as in Garage Gym???
Love the pullup setup. You have WAY more bracing than you need on the sides though. Your design is pretty much identical to mine. I used left over 4x4 cedar posts and had nothing more than a short angled brace on the front, back and inside of both uprights. It held and got a ton of use for around 3 years, when I replaced it with something permanent in my garage. Love it. Great job
Not the rapper. The Crossfitter! :) Seen in the 2012 Open :)
thats all i got
Wood chopping is baaadaaasss! Kurtis B is O.G.
creative use of home space!!
The Carl Sandburg poem is pretty cool, and the poemhunter website is doggone nifty. Awfully nice of them to electronically catalog and store the creative works of 78,455 unemployed people.
Mike Jones!! dont act like you dont know my name.
Haha, I noticed the guns in the background. No, they are both toy guns, although one is missing the orange cap. I think they are my bro's.
And agreed, log chopping IS badass!
what's the website he keeps saying? ka gege??
www.kijiji.ca like craigslist just found it!

Hello crossfiters! Question, I've been crossfiting for about a two months now and my hands look like they've been dipped in acid and getting worse with every work out. Any suggestions on how I can reduce the amount of ugly my hands go through? Thanks.
#20 josh...google crossfit hand care. alot of great info on protection of rhands and how to take care of hand pre and post wod.
Love the Garage Gym Daniel. So, when is there going to be a "PIMP MY GARAGE GYM" or "Extreme Make Over - Garage Gym" series. THAT would be pretty sweet.
@ #20 Josh...using vitamin E (squeezed from capsules) worked really well in the healing process, but can be quite messy. Unfortunately, you have to build your calluses up to withstand the torture of Crossfit.
I would like to see more of Kurtis Bowlers stuff. A while back we saw him do a MANCHILD Turkish Getup and now wood chopping! I would like to see what else he has up his sleeve to incorporate into an unconventional type WOD or anything in general.
nice home gym, mike jones! i heart home gyms, theres nothing like finishing a wod and lying on the floor gasping for air, in the comfort and serenity of ones own home gym. crossfit and home gyms rule!
Day behind again. Made up Nancy today. Results posted there.
#23 mike k - that is a FANTASTIC idea! Let's hope someone from Rogue or Again Faster is cruising the comments today...
CFSB Deadlifts 7Rep
215 x 7
225 x 7
235 x7 (PR)
4 Rounds Run 100M forward/100M backward (4:40), then
50 Abmat SU
30 KBS 1P
20 Box Jumps 20"
Would have run the 100's much faster if not for the indoor very short track.
As for the article, I'd have to agree with the comments on that page, it would get taken over by pirates. Of course they would have a hard time with the "very limited weapons restrictions" on the island and mutants he creates with his "DNA manipulation" he funds. Comical, thanks for the laugh.
Missed Nancy yesterday so...
the HOA president must love that set-up!
Dan and his gym make me proud to be a crossfitter. well done my man!
