/ Empty room, what to put in it?
I have little money at the moment, but what I do have is...
A pretty much unlimited supply of scaffolding
A lot of misc building materials (wood etc)
My plan was to put the finger board up, a pull up bar, dip bars for balancing the muscles. Thats the rock stuff I was planning on putting in there.
On the ice training front, I was going to add a thick piece of wood for ice axe pull ups, have a brick wall outside to drytool on toprope for laps, and was going to add a bench seat to do swing exercises with the tool (see Will Gadds blog for what these are).
Can anyone think of anything else worth adding?
PS: A woody shall be added when money allows :D
PPS: Have a few decent partners coming down to train with me so won't be all lonesome in there.
A snooker table, of course!
A mahoosive train set!
And a teapot :-)
Swedish nympho lodger.
And her best girlfriend...
at one end, One very comfortable chair
at the other end, Townsend rock turntable, Clearaudio Phono Stage, moon amplifier, living voice auditorium speakers.
please tell me this is also on the ground floor, with all that scaffolding available i would make a custom power cage for weight training possibly with dip bars and space for gymnastic rings
How high is the room?
Locate joists above, excellent horizontal indoor roof wall. Can then fill space with lodger/toot etc.
The power cage was essentially what I was going for...but with a fingerboard :D
It's an old stable so on the ground floor, concrete floor, 4 foot wide door straight to the outside and wood pannelled once you get 3 foot off the floor.
Having a small tightrope a foot or so off the floor could help improve balance.
with a 12ft ceiling and scaffold you have to consider making a system for gymnastic rings it would be wrong not to
a slack/tight line could easily we worked in to the system. actually if you wanted i would love to give you a hand if you decided a project like this
What are gymnastic rings?
And you're more than welcome to help but I believe Sheffield is quite a way from London :D
And a bear.
A brothel, you would need a waiting area with a fish tank. Put up curtain walls around two beds. Good steady income allowing you to do some great climbing trips.
Forget the dip bars, use rings.
Overhanging rungs for pullups/campusing (tho scaffolding is nasty on the hands but good for grip).
But first run off a batch of e's in the space.
