Gosh dangit, i need to grab a pick next time i'm at my dad's. He has been creating a home gym in his basement and making things on his own . He is 75 yrs young and can create anything from anything lol.

He has the money to go get one of those all in one cable machines....but he created a pully system to do tricep pushdowns/pulldowns, etc where the pulleys are mounted to the rafters in ceiling and there is a bar that he adds weight to and has a straight bar for push downs.

He also created out of wood a rack to hold barbells.

He is so cool, and the place looks great. I'll get picks and post them up .

(yea yea this post is useless without pics huh? lol)

Sounds like the gym my buddy's dad had in the basement back in the late 80s.

That is awesome. I have a pulley ran through a swami wrap at the top of my homemade squat rack that I use for extensions and such. You can even reverse the pulley and put it on the bottom and do curls if you want.
