My Sweet Patio Gym


#1


Pull up/dip stand
Dip Belt
Suspension trainer
Kettle-bells 88,70,53,53,35
Ab wheel
Strongergrip.com shot loadable sledge
Tire to beat and use for rows
4 x 10 ft rubber pad to lift on

This is what I do on my porch in Denver Colorado. It is not perfect but considering this is an apartment patio I can still get a hell of allot done.

The dog is my female Leonberger and for those who are wondering she is 115lbs and quite tall

Nice, now all you need is a squat rack!

Why, you don’t have the money for a rack? Certainly looks like you have the room for it.


#5

Wow a leonberger, very rare and beautiful dog.

She is a wonderful dog and loves Colorado winter

Your dog looks pretty big, you could throw him over your shoulders like a firemans carry and get your squats in.

Who needs a rack?

Before I had a rack, I was Steinborning the bar to do 20 rep squats. Maybe not the smartest idea, that.

I was also using a pullover and hip thrust to do floor presses.

The rack is nice… but the barbell and weights should come first.


#9

If you use the 88 and the 70 for double front kettlebell squats you have yourself some work…lights me up


#10

From a conditioning standpoint though, that looks like a pretty nice setup.


#11

Solid conditioning and GPP set up…I like it!


#12

What are you going to do when it snows?

They are a good tool to use for strength and conditioning as I have some heavy ones. Now I do understand that this set up is limited though. I will never get to truly maximize my genetic potential with this setup but it does allow me to get in some great shape and stay fairly strong. Sure I won’t be able to DL 500 but I will still be pretty strong if I can snatch an 88 ten times!
