    Me either I guess it's used a lot in sports training. He picked it up from a local college when they dropped their football program. Should be a good addition for some shoulder and leg work it looks like. Of course it's supposed to rain the next 3 days where I'm at....

    It looks like you can do a lot with it. Hammer Strength machines are great. If a gym has them, they're always my go to for machine work.

  7. We had one of those, you can remain pretty rigid and isolate like a single arm shoulder press or load it down and really lean into it full body use your legs like a push press movement both hands overhead simultaneous. Reminds me of pushing one of those fuckin lineman sleds in highschool

  9. Same one Grit has, its Ethos which I guess is the dick's sporting goods house brand. I think it was $700 new which is far cheaper than any of the rogue racks and seems to be good enough quality for my purposes. Their bumper plates ended up comin out to less than $1/lb new but had to go to 3 stores to find enough...it's early but given the circumstances I'd recommend it for the price point compared to the Rogue stuff etc and the fact I was able to walk out with it same day. Has a pullup cross bar with a variety of hand grips too. Bar is satisfactory, not as good value as the plates and rig

    needs to be anchored

    I checked Rogue, but at the time nothing was available. The price for the Ethos one was too good and I needed a rack ASAP. I'm looking at getting the Ethos landmine attachment as well. We will all have badass home gyms when this is over lol

    Thanks pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Bottom 2 layers are 4 sheets of 1/2 4x8 sheating plywood. The second layer laid opposite of the first layer.
    The center is 3/4 4x8 sanded one side plywood.
    The outsides are 2x8 3/4 inch stall mat.

    Have some 4x4s and a 4x4 piece of the mat left. Going to make 2-16x20x4.75 blocks for block pulls and big deficits, then the remaining mat bolt together to make a couple more blocks at 1.75 inches for blocl pulls and less severe deficits.
