Build your own body weight training gym 09-11-2011
Check out our new article on how to build your own outdoor body weight training gym.
Needing nothing other than a small materials budget and a bit of elbow grease, we give you a step-by-step guide to create a space that will allow you to develop an insane level of strength and muscular definition.
This is the perfect solution for perfecting your basic strength moves like pull-ups, dips and muscle-ups, and ultimately progressing on to some freestyle bar work like the Bar-barians enviably put on show.

It would be great to see more of these gyms springing up around the country so please help us spread the word and like our article.

This article is focused on the home ring trainer, where people regularly want to install and mount their gymnastics rings in home gyms, garages, basements, or bedrooms.
