2018 wrote I have tried looking up a video on how to build it even a thread on how to build and cannot find anything. I would say just slowly step by step. Don't take it too fast, if I find something I will PM you a link I'll keep looking around
So i made some good progress. I am about halfway done. The last half to do, is put up the top half wihch includes the pull up bar and the hooks after getting the sides up and then it will all come together and connect.
I cant leave this power rack inside, or leave it inside, and use it. If I did, then because of all the weight, I would literally cause a hole to break in the floor. I could use some ideas of what to do. I think if I put it outside, since I live in a trailer park, I would have to literally chain it down or at leazst put it in an enclosure, like a shed. Thoughts?
With the options you have given the best idea I think would be putting it in a shed. You could try leaving outside and chaining it to something but if someone wants it bad enough they're going to get it. I wouldn't want to keep it inside though if that would cause a hole to break in the floor... they sell prebuilt sheds pretty cheap online or at Home Depot (at least where I live) not sure where you live, but that'd be what I do man. A shed. With a lock on the front door of it. A shed with a good size to keep all your workout gear in.
i ended up staying up pretty late and getting most of it together. Since I was doing this job myself, the tope half after that was a huge pain. The pull up bar kep falling down. I also, cant even store the barbell in the holder that it came with, because the ceiling is just too low to the ground. Also, with the barbell, even without it on the racks, the thing takes up like a quarter f my entire room or more. So I really have no space left, but I do not really care. For now, since im so weak anyway, I might just use it in the meantime for stretching and lower weight exercises like benching and squats.
I know you spent all the time building that but have you thought of working out at gym rather than stacking up all the equipment at your house? That's what I used to do and I filled up my garage too much so I sold it all and started at the gym. Granted I rarely go now I tend to work too much but it might be a smarter option. It'll give you the room back you know
haha yeah, not sure if you seen my videos or other posts talking about it, but yeah, i have a planet fitness membership and then where I record my videos is like this old pool barn old school style gym. Sounds weird, but really freaking cool place. Check one of the videos I made sometime if your interested. Its really worth a watch just to see how the gym is. I promise theres a lot of cool stuff there.
Now that you bring it up, I have watched one of your videos of you at the gym. I feel like that or that barn place is a better option than stacking up equipment at your house and losing space you know. I'll check out your YouTube though for sure. See what it's about
hey man, i will take it. I know, as you can see I dont have a lot of space in my room, but like i said i dont really mind. I just need my basics and a few toys and im good. I can manage and get around so im good. But i 100% agree with you. I dont plan on adding anymore stuff except maybe those attatchments depdning if i can get them cheap enough. other then that, im only using the thing for like very few lifts and stretching in the morning to help with muscle soreness since im getting BACK INTO the gym. I dont plan on doing anything heavy, even when im stronger and could lfit something that, if it DOES DROP, would cause a hole. So i plan on taking care of everything and not missing any gym sessions.
If you want to show some love on the youtube stuff, that would be great! If you literally never watch a video again, I completely understand. Its not for everyone. Espescially with where im at and what im trying to do. Not everyones thing, which is what the video im uploading literally right this second is about, should be out in like 10 minutes or less.
If you do stay tuned, you should let me know if you can see the quality difference in my new videos compared to my videos from before my toe amputation! Regardless, appreciate you fam!
I got you man, I'll subscribe and give some love. Down to keep giving support. Cant wait to see the progress. Eventually get a shed outside and make a whole personal gym with mats and a couple of racks hella equipment that would be dope. I know it's a financial project but overtime it'll all come together and after a while of stickin to it the progress would be crazyyy
funny enough, thats the plan
i think it would be awesome to document that progress too. Like what if over time I built a shed, added equipment and with more money and time, I could even get a bigger spot to have all the stuff in on top of adding more and more stuff and maybe do what the other guy does (the guy whos gym i go to) and what if i started letting people come by for a small fee and let them use the stuff and jsut see how it really develops! I think there is so much potential!
And seriously man, thank you so much. The lvoe really makes it that much easier! It also helps inspire me to want to keep going, so I really mean it when I say thank you so so much. I will keep you updated about the equipment stuff for sure. The new video is live by the way! Its a shorter one.
No problem dude that's the beauty of TTG and the good parts of the internet, meeting people to help and give support on your journey through life man. Do videos of the progress when I get time I'll check it out. I work like a dog damn near everyday so I have little time but I'll make time to give support. Going to check the new video now
you got discord?
Yessir add me I sent you a PM. I'm working nights this weekend but I can text on there can't talk until I'm off...
