Some Assembly Required - Weight Cage Weekend !

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Just a quick note to say that in addition to working on a numbers intensive report this weekend I assembled a weight cage that arrvied this Friday. There were a few more nuts and bolts than I'd like to normally see but it was laid out nicely and it went together in a reasonable timeframe. The only snag was that while I had carefully measured the height to fit downstairs basement room the assembly required sliding a couple of pieces that were more than a foot high over top of the assembled frame ... there was not enough space. But with some assistance we managed to tilt the frame forward enough to slide them on and then voila:

Well there is only one thing missing now! Excuses for not looking like Arnold

    Nice! You are going to get a ton of use out of that sucker :)!

Hey, if you had any leftover nuts and bolts - that doesn't mean you screwed up, it means you simply made the design "more efficient" ;)

    My husband is having major jealousy at your workout gear!

Congrats on the assembly. My least favourite part of getting new things.

    Wow ow wow, that looks emoticon !! You can do your own version of circuit training down there now! I know you've waited a long time to get this weight cage, and considering how quickly you put it together, I'd say you're ready to roll with it. It's time to "pump you up" as one particular CA governor would say... emoticon

    We have one of those cages at work. I absolutely love ot. There is very little you can not do all by yourself. Squats are a bit off, but once youbget used to them then they are good.

Gym looks perfect though my friend.
