Rock Ruminations

"The Rock" - Newfoundland's nickname, attributed to the granite and rocky landcapes which wrap around coastlines of the province. It is an affectionate term towards Newfoundland, and highlights the significance of environment. Ruminations - the act of pondering; meditation.

DIY Fitness Projects

Okay, I know that I haven't really posted to this space in years - it may even be a decade at this point.  but I had a couple of items that I wanted to post somewhere and I didn't have any other place to post them that I thought was appropriate.

So over the past few months - maybe even year or so - I have been undertaking a couple of "do it yourself" or DIY projects that were fitness related.  The first, with the help of my father, was this deadlift platform.  Basically two sheets of 4'x8' plywood screwed together, then two quarters of a horse stall mat and a 4'x4' sheet of plywood - along with some 1"x4" pine and some gate latches (to attach bands).

The second project was this TRX-style system.  Basically it is a Gold's Gym Total Body Training System that is attached to the ceiling using a gate latch.

The third project was a homemade landmine that I made - attached to my half rack - using PVC pipe and a 6" bolt.

The final, initial, project was this tricep pulley system, that took a bit of work to get done.  Basically it is a couple of plastic/rubber wheels from Home Depot that were grooved out to allow a wire to run through it, with a D-link on each end for the attachment and the weight.

I say final, initial, project because over the next couple of days I will be posting detailed notes on two new DIY fitness projects.
