Home Made Gym

This is my baby. Not much to look at but it gets the job done. I made it myself with some scrap beams and a little imagination. Its fully adjustable so that I can change the height of the squat bar for bench press. It can also do tri-press downs and latpulldowns, thanks to some wheels that I got from a clothes hanger, as well as rows. It also has a chin bar, but I'm not sure if you can make it out in the picture.

If anything, I admire your ingenuity.


#3


Another pic.


#4

And another.


#5


And another.


#6

I'll second that. Is it safe? It's hard to tell the sturdiness from the pics.


#7

Its fairly safe. I mean, I haven't died or been injured yet. The only thing thats a little hairy is when I do latpulldowns. I can feel the wire stretch quite a bit, but it has never broken before.


#8

That's what I like! A man who acts first and asks questions from the hospital!

Way to take the initiative and make yourself a place to train.


#9

Lol. I guess that's one way to benchmark safety.
