Taken directly from a post in my journal.

PICTURE TIME!!!

Here is my new sled I built which I will use to drag around with weight on it to increase agility and overall physical performance. It was made out of 2 old ski's and 5 random pieces of wood + 1 piece of piping + 2 bolts. No money was spent.

Now here is my weight room in the new house we just moved to. I'm happy with what I have, except I need to get more weights again.

Newb question for you - do you drag the sled around your backyard, D? If you do, doesn't that tear up the grass?

Badass Detard, the weight room looks fantastic. Everything you need (seems to be) right there. I imagine most people would be like "OMG! He doesn't even have a curl machine, what a crap gym!".

And your sled looks badass. I'm buying sandbags and maybe some sled materials with this weeks pay.

lones - Yeah the sled is kinda ghetto but it will get the job done:thumbup:

McIrish - I'm gonna be pulling it around the park near my house. Attach it to my belt and then just run with it. The ski's are smooth on the bottom so it shouldnt tear up too much grass

tom - Yeah I can do pretty much all the exercises I need to with this setup so i'm pretty happy, even though it has cost me alot of money.

and at home I can curl in the rack as much as I want :shoot:

looks good. i just got back from the hardware store....i bought the supplies for putting together a pull up bar in my garage. $27 total, and i think it will work just fine.

Awesome set-up. Looks like the house was just built...with a weight room in the blueprints.

A little redundant on the pics, but man, that is a NICE setup!!! *jealous*

I'd be a bit leery of that sled, though. Sure it was free, but doesn't look all that sturdy. I'd just go with bending a peice of 1/4" aluminum sheeting and welding a pipe to the middle of it and then attaching chains to the front. Or you can use an old car hood with chains attached, as I've seen some do before. Regardless, I'll be interested to find out how this all works for you.

HAha, that sounds so ghetto.

Thanks for the responses guys.

Phenom - I actually do have 2 of those but they are packed away somewhere since we just moved.

Guido - It is suprisingly sturdy. I was standing on it and trying to shake it but it wouldnt wobble. I think it should be sweet.

IRL - Power Rack man!!

I wasn't serious about your gym needing anything else, it's sick the way it is. When a weightlifter sees a bench, a power rack, and a dead lift platform all right next to each other, it bet the feeling is similar to when a normal person sees a sunset in the tropics for the first time, or something like that. If I had a home gym I would want it to be similar to yours.
