    Probably won't happen until I can do them one handed. The one doorframe I can use to walk my feet up in the air in my house doesn't really have anything I can put my phone on to record. Plus anytime I record anything and put it on here, it gets heckled by losers

    The proportion of good guys to annoying fucking faggots on here is really bad these days.

    Lately, yeah, but we go through that every once and a while. Eventually it mellows out.

    Got some materials, going to install the pull up bar in the garage soon! The parallel bars feel like a must for me otherwise my wrists want to explode.

    When I finally buy a house, I'm going to look for a 2 car garage so I can set up an epic bloodsport strength monk studio. High and low parallel bars are going to be a must. I've got so many ideas for cool training implements. Aside from a squat rack and a bench I can move into it, it's all going to be cool calisthenics stuff and weird strongman conditioning implements.

    DIY strength thread?
    I'm making a list of some odd bits to get form when we have our next place sorted in September. Dumbells, kettlebells, Pullup bar, planchettes, something for glute raises, wobble board... Many ideas.

    First thing I came up with was to rig up a pulley and rope system. You can weight one end. That way you can do stuff like sled pulls with limited space. Set it up in a place with a high ceiling or outside. You can back up a few steps and pull with your arms, or use a second pulley on the ground and a harness to drag the weight.

    I got a piece of 1.5" metal pipe as a 2" thick bar. Put those runner gaskets at the right spot to keep the plates from coming in.

    One of my customers is doing this. He got a few hard mats, just enough to be shock absorbing for dropping weights and have a decent place to stand. Right now there's a bench, squat rack, set of those adjustable DBs and his bicycle off to the side. He wanted to put a pullup bar straight onto the wall but there's windows everywhere so it will have to be a ceiling mount that he needs his carpenter buddy to help with. Ultra simple home setup that doesn't even take up one parking space, the zero excuses for missing training ever kind of setup everyone should have.

    I want it to take up one space! That way I have an excuse to never let anyone move else move in and it will be a big red flag for me to use if any woman suggests tearing it all down so she can park inside.

    She will take the one spot in the garage while you park outside, that way she can ask you to move your car so she can get out while we are trying to play video games.

    Rogue actually makes some pretty sweet racks that fold up into your wall.

    Hell yes.

    Power rack, bench, Oly platform, rings, climbing ropes, stall bars, BJJ mats, heavy and speed bags, one of those big rectangular trampolines, whole mess of dumbbells, kettlebells, Atlas stones...

    And for recovery/relaxation, a sauna, float tank, and ice bath.

    I'd really like to get back into striking training(training tournament TKD for almost a decade through high school and college). I'd really need to get my flexibility back, I've retaining some through powerlifting recovery, but I'd definitely need to work back to being able to kick 6'4" guys in the head again. I would definitely get a Thai bag, speed bag, and also probably build some kind of adjustable multi clapper pad holder. Grappling really isn't my thing, but some kind of powerlifting, calisthenics, strongman, martial arts training plan would keep me interested until I died. Would probably lift heavy one day, lift volume another, do implements another day, and fill in with calisthenics and martial arts as long as recovery could keep up. Maybe just alternate weekly with heavy weights and volume.

    I wish the local boxing gym wasn't run by a flake.

    There's a couple around here that I looked in to but based on the people I saw walking out I decided it was a bad choice.

    Yeah, I am good with a power rack and a bunch of various kg plates including 50s. If there's money, hot tub. So good for recovery after heavy training.

    If you don't exceed the weight limit of a trampoline, you have failed in the gym.
