My New Lat Blaster Set Up


 
I paid £100 for this contraption.  Made by Body Solid, ideal as a space saver set up if anyone is in need of a new row set up

    Not bad mate!
     
    Did you not consider a pulldown/row system for a rack?
     
    Always buying new bits of equipment for my gym.

    I assume it was jsut a hinge you could buy to screw down into the floor and handles..dont think it would be wide enough for under hand grip for me tho..would love to try that.

    Could have saved yourself a ton just using an oly bar wedged against the wall and a tea towel.

    Could have saved even more money and used a scaffold pole instead of an oly bar

    Its pretty good cause it allows complete free movement from the base aswell, so its not just a simple up down lift, the balance needed will employ more muscles atleast.
     
    alhado - i want a lat tower / low row but dont have the head height sadly so i have to compromise (or raise the roof haha)
     
    Kaldog - i posted a thread a week or two back with more pics, may be able to find it on my profile??
     
    Cheers guys

    ah fair enough , I bought one for my rack not long ago.
     
    Missed out of 250kg of oly plates , load of bars and a powertech bench with squat rack yesterday as I forgot the auction was ending.

    If you like it mate thats all that counts, it will certainly do a good job, loving the chopper handle bars too.

    You're just jealous that you've gone out of the top 5

    I actually really like that bit of kit!
    What do you dislike about it?
     
    They're pricey too.

    The size, it just feels awkward and massive, and the rubber on the handles is damaged far too easily.
