Interesting arm day equipment. Road bike curls, mountain bike curls, box curls, heavy bag curls.

I dig it. Must really shock the pythons.

This is more or less what I'm trying to get my hands on. I built a pullup bar and have rings, and have a road bike. Just waiting on a squat rack/kb/barbell and weights; then I'll build a deadlift platform.
Chest and arms...all day, everyday!

Forgot I have a set of rings hanging off the pull-up bar too.

I'm also considering joining the home gym group later in the year. I'm trying to save up 3-4 grand to be able to spend. Thinking squat rack w/pullup and dip attachment, deadlift/oly platform, bumper plates, adjustable DB's and adjustable bench, power bar and oly bar. Maybe toss in a kettlebell or two. I'll miss cables though.
For around $100 from REI....you can put in A PJ worthy pulley system and utilize any dumbell or kettlebell in your inventory to make a serious cable workout:

2 x Carabiners $20

2 x Pulleys $40

1 x 8mm rope $20

1 x Roll tubular nylon $20

I think the weak point here is 12 Kilo Newton's...
So unless you anchor it to your ceiling fan.... you will probably break your soul before any of this gives out.

I honestly hadn't thought of that. Thank you for letting me know!
Sorry Buddy...bad dad joke.

I meant this cheap alternative will handle years of work and physics supports body parts giving up before any one component does. Mines over 3 years old, I don't throw down on those big weights like the cool kids but I do hit some reps. The only friction point is heat on the rope from high reps [see what I did there, dad joke Saturday].

Mount it to your ceiling if you can or one loop around a pull up bar or tree branch outside and you're in business. That's the purpose of the nylon, to be flexible with your set up. Good luck!!

I didn't want to quote the first post in its entirety lol. I understood what you were saying but I realize now that after quoting that in my response it could have come across as sarcastic.

To rephrase, I appreciate you showing me a lower cost alternative to an expensive cable tower, since I had not been able to conceive of a way that would allow me to not spend an additional few grand. Thanks, and I'll be on the lookout for the dad jokes next time.
