before. to those about to be hacksawed, we salute you
that won't do
chop chop, in retrospect i should have cut on the other side of that hook as it serves as an anchor for the bottom cable. not a big deal though as i can just anchor it with any attachment
not my most aesthetic work, but it'll hold
this is the portion of the unit that would normally anchor the two pec dec arms. its supposed to hang upside down, but i flipped it to point upwards and secured it to my rack using u-bolts. unfortunately i derped with my measurements so it isnt flush and perpendicular, although it is secured very tightly. i might get wider u-bolts and put that piece behind the rack crosspiece which would allow it to be vertical, but i can't be bothered right now
success! hobo-den 2.0 is born. at the bottom you can see the leg extension turned into a swing apparatus. this thing fucking owns bones and is 110% better than using kbs/dbs for swings, especially if you are stuck with wide as hell oly handles which only allow you to do swings in a stupid wide sumo stance. two main issues: one, i need a longer bottom cable as i can't get full rom for curls or pullthroughs although rows are fine. two, im missing the two bottom spacers underneath the stack so i actually can't fit the selector pin into the lowest two plates. easy fix though
now wtf do i do with this stuff, any bright ideas?
keeping in the theme of free shit, fully working treadmill my neighbours didn't want. im going to use it for treadmill pushing as a change of pace from speed rope. also see mark vi tdi jetta chopped into an el camino, bish is riding on airbags with dem rimmzzzz aw yea
so yeah that is my $100 rack + high/low cable pulley. i look forward to less fucking around with bands, although given there are only 120lbs on the stack my next challenge is to find a way to incorporate band tension into this, which might be as simple as just looping a band across the top of the rack and around the bar. will still need a way to add tension to the lower pulley though.
