    Good to see you getting your money’s worth on the GHR. I suspect there’ll be one appearing at Toffe’s gym sometime in 2006 :)

  2. Kris Says:

    We’ll see. The odds are against it as 2006 will be a meager year due to one of us being home with Rufus full-time. Renovating Toffe’s gym was quite an investment in itself, took one month’s full salary to do it (did very little freelancing in 2005). 2006 might be the year to take it easy and enjoy the accomplishment, perhaps spiced with a specialty bar or heavy loadable dumbells. But who knows… the future is an open bright card, isn’t it?

    …unless of course I have one welded for dirt cheap…

    You should see if any of the schools you work for is selling off a pommel horse. Then all you’ll need to weld is a stand-up footplate to the floor, and the pommel horse so it can stay put. Or, just part ways with some money and get the real deal.

  5. Kris Says:

    That’s a great idea. In my experience, a pommel horse GHR is not really any different from a modern GHR except that the latter is a bit more comfy. Don’t think the hamstrings would notice any difference. So, if I could get a used pommel horse cheap, I could just weld the toe plate and drop both pieces in the now standard slab of concrete. Hmmm…
