    Going to sell gym tickets at the gates? (at reduced family rates, naturally) :)

  2. Chris D. Says:

    I’m jealous our your out door lifting…I would love to do that in a place that isn’t humid like Iowa!

  3. Kris Says:

    Scott, I bet I could get some revenue out of it from tourists coming to exotic Finland and perhaps even from some of the locals who’d like to get their biceps outdoors for a change, but at this point the stream of people would definitively intrude a bit too much for it too be worth it. Maybe I’ll do it some summer just for the fun of it, but with a toddler in the house this is not just the time for it.

    Chris, yeah, it’s definitively very far from humid and not very hot either. Loads of mosquitoes in the evening though, but nothing that anti-repellants won’t take care of. The breeze from the sea can’t be beat. :-)

    What a place to relax in after the Russian routine on any given day. Sweet!!!

  5. Scott Says:

    I look forward to seeing the construction of any new equipment at the gym - a GHR outfit? Reverse hyper perhaps?

  6. Kris Says:

    Some, as of yet undisclosed, construction is underway, but nothing very major yet… We’ll see… :-)

  7. Alberto Caraballo Says:

    Have you looked at Chris’ (from Powerlifting Etc)rack-mountable reverse hyper? I know you are handy enough to build that, and he says that it is cheap to construct.

  8. Kris Says:

    Yes, I have. It inspired me to write up the mother of all reviews of rack mountable reverse hypers and looking into the patent issues surrounding building one, but I haven’t had time to put the finishing touch on that post yet. I also have all the drawings I need to build a dedicate unit and have spent some time researching the ball bearing joint part… Suffice it to say, that if, or rather when, a reverse hyper appears at Toffe’s it is going to be either a home built dedicated unit or a purchased original. I have the space for one and would like to just hop on it without having to set it up in the rack first. More to follow on this… my plans for this summer are still open.

    Here’s the link to Chris’ excellent implementation for those of you who might not have seen it.
