As I've mentioned before the box I was doing crossfit at for just a short 5 months last year closed it's doors in early December, prompting me building out my garage gym.  They are selling off equipment at seriously discounted rates this weekend and I was able to pick up a few things this morning after doing 16.1 at another box about 20 miles away.  I actually only went to pick up the C2 Rower they owed me but ended up picking up quite a bit more than planned as I couldn't pass up the prices, plus it was painful watching what she has gone through trying to keep the business going so some of this stuff I took just as an excuse to give her more money to help her pay all the debtors she has right now.

 

1 - C2 Rower  (This was as repayment of the loan I gave them in August to try and help keep the box going)

1 - 45lbs Rouge Bar 2.0

1 - 15lbs Training/Technique Bar

1 - 32Kg/70lbs Kettlebell

1 - 20Kg/44lbs Kettlebell

1 - 14lbs Rouge Medicine Ball

1 - 10lbs Rouge Medicing Ball

1 - Abmat

1 - 18x18x16 Plyo Jump Box

2 - 16x11x11 Plyo Jump Box

2 - Rouge Spring Collars

 

Even picked up some things I didn't go there specifically to get.  Like:

1 - 20in Floor Fan

1 - TripLite 8 Socket Power Strip

 

She gave me just to get rid of:

1 - Box of Chalk with 3 blocks left in it

1 - 5 Gallon Bucket with a complete unbroken brick of chalk still in it

1 - Little bucket full of Poker Chip we used to count out rounds in a WOD

1 - Little bucket with her extra Dry Erase Markers and another Eraser

1 - 2 gallon Spray bottle of solution we used to spray on the mats to mop up sweat

1 - Flat mop

 

Happily was able to retrieve the Marine Corps flag I donated to the box also.  

 

The technique bar and the smaller plyo boxes are my attempt to get the wife out in the garage with me to let me teach her how to lift.  We'll see if my alterior motives play dividends in the long run.  :D

Shame about the box going down, but good haul. I purchased a few things with the same intent of getting the Mrs out there. Only had a few cameos so far but working on more?
Does it hurt? Good. Get it done.

Finally added a couple of things I've been meaning to do for a couple months now.  

 

Build a shelve to put the medicine balls on.  Need to add a 4th L-bracket

Also, finally put up the gun racks for the bars.  Bought it back in January when I only had the 2 bars, the cheap one and the Lynx hibrid bar.  Didn't realize I'd be adding the Rouge Bar and the 15lbs training bar in Feb when the box sold the equipment or I'd have gotten the 5 bar gun rack.  Oh well.

Anyone looking for a wall mount pullup bar head on over to Titan Fitness.  I ordered this one on Sunday afternoon and it was sitting on my doorstep on Tuesday when I got home from work, free shipping to continental US.  Outside the US call them about shipping.

 

Titan Wall Mounted Pull Up Chin Up Bar

 

$89 and that price just went up from the first time I almost bought it back in January of $75.  Still a lot less than any system being sold on other sites.

Got the pullup bar installed today.  Nice and sturdy, measures 31 inched from wall to the bar with the 2x6's mounted to the wall and the rack mounted to them.  A full 48 inched of bar to work on.  Did some head dead body bounce kipping pullups to test it.  Seems rock solid.  Will update later on after I get some mileage on it.  The bar is powder coated so I may be switching that someday to a raw steal bar.  We'll see...

And don't you worry DocV...  I've still got plenty of room for the LSU banner to go back up on the wall.  I know you were concerned about that once you saw the pics....  :D  :P

Very nice indeed. And that explains the pull-ups of death, or whatever you called that crazy progression of pull-ups that you did tonight. LOL! Like a kid at Christmas. Couldn't wait to get out there and break it in! :)

 

Well done

Like them just fine.  You can feel the difference from lifing off of a concrete floor.  However in humid conditions they do get slick just like the concrete will so I have to keep a fan blowing across it when the weather gets like that.
