    Nice work, but I've a fear that missing triangulation pole is going to be your downfall.

    Have those formative years spent tirelessy studying trigonometry taught you nothing Mr Boar?? The triangles are always right, be they made of soft cheese or scaffolding, miss them not!!!

    hey! pretty cool, i made my own dipping station, great feeling of achievment.
    couldn't you have nicked a few scaffold poles there always left lying around. would have saved a few quid.

    looks good m8. i have made my own too!!!! few points:

    at the "back" of the cage (eg where your head is when you bench) i have 2 rests for the bar. one at bench accessable height, another one a foot higher or so, suitable to squat under!

    secondly, i have 2 rests at the "front" of the cage (eg the foot end when u bench). these are at the same height as the squatting ones. these are used to rest the bar between military presses (saves cleaning them up!). if you position these at the correct height you can probably incline bench with them too (when you have a decent bench!)

    if you place a barbell on the squat rests and a barbell on the military presses, you can then place 2 lengths of scaffold 90 degrees to these barbells and dip with them!

    phew! hope you can understand all that! lol

    Cheers peeps - i am well pleased with the old girl.

    I cant do standing miliary presses in that part of the shed freak - i have to do them by the window where the roof is higher !!! LMAo , thanks for the tips - yours will be included in the 'rouges gallery' if you can get a pic and mail it me.

    I had to scoot down 3 junctions of the M6 on the bob the builder scooter with 8 pieces of scaffold onboard !!! that was some cardio right there A-huffin and a-puffin

    i think murphyblew uses hisfor dips , however i have a rickety wooden one i use for dips , should my arms ever gain enough strength to lift my bloated body

    Osagi mate - i know the triangles will come back to haunt me !!!

    I respect tri-angulation , but i must turn away.

    1 other thing m8, may be worth looking into how much the scaffold joints can hold when they are open (eg when resting bar on there between sets). wont be a prob for me & my puny lifts, but for squatting 200Kg+ may be a bit dodgy?!

    yea mate,it crossed my mind too ,thats definatley the weak point , i plan on putting the 2 spare couplings under the squatting ones for extra support ,I wont be banging the weights down in a massive stylee adding extra pressure.

    the old brain will be ticking - always after a way to improve my lovely wife in the shed.

    Hello,

    Well ,i wont hide the fact that me posting this is a scandalous bump for my thread in a vain attemptto get more views ofmy website , however i used my cage in a workout today and i have posted some vids in my journal

    video corner (via you tube)

    military press 58kg 10 reps

    143kg bench press (PB if paused long enough) (please excuse the ghey 'come on' near the end !!)

    123kg benchpress 4 reps

    I did have an IPF judge with me so the records should stand:



    for more semi naked boar fun visit the best journal in leyland

    also,if anyone wants my old squat rack ,of the wooden veriety ,your welcome to it. I live very closeto junction 28 of the M6 in lancashire.

    its wood,but it does the job.

    Jonny mate, i think the next thing you need to build is a dumbell tree.

    With instructions please mate, so i can build one too.

    jonny that is a magnificent floral cover you've got on the bench mate. Any chance of you releasing your own line of bench covers soon?

    I can see it now,

    yup, i need a dumbell tree - sick of picking stuff off the floor !!

    my floral deckchair cover is my saviour !!!

    little jack loves annoying me - adding 30 mins to a session just shoo'ing him out of the way !!

    cheers trigg - with a name like that i thought you were gonna comment on my dodgy triangulation

    you can download the bench if youtube dont work for you.
