u/kazoodac · 17 pointsr/zelda

Here's the breakdown as I see it:

Barring getting a blacksmith to make you you the real deal for thousands and thousands of dollars, the best you could do would be to buy this guy's handmade replicas: He doesn't always have ebay auctions up though, and some times his work will turn up for sale elsewhere.

EDIT: Aaron of Fiberglass Blades is stopping production so that he can move on to bigger and better things. There will be a few auctions for what remains of his inventory this year, but don't expect to pay less than $1000 a piece for each item.

If you are looking for the cheaper mass produced kinds, there are still several to pick from, and even then you need to decide if what you want is more for display or if you actually intend to carry it. None of these are combat safe in any way, but some still are better than others.

A disclaimer about these links: all of these can be found from multiple sellers at multiple prices, so do your shopping! I'm using amazon for picture purposes.

The best one for display in my opinion is this one here. The hilt and blade look fantastic, and it comes with a plaque. It is not good for swinging though; it is very heavy and is most likely not full tang, aka the blade does not continue into the hilt. That said, it is a beautiful piece for the price, and I have one on my wall. It seems to be based off of a mixture of the Link to the Past and Twilight Princess Master Sword designs, as it has barbs, but is not blue in color. There are newer versions of this same sword modeled after the blue master sword and a Dark Link Variant, but I avoided the former because I don't like how the entire handle is one shade of blue. That's your call.

Next up is this one, which is probably the most common. The blade is long, but does not have that awesome shape that the above one does. In my opinion, it does not look as much like the master sword as it ought. The upside to this though it that the sheathe is the best one going in terms of mass produced pieces. I am cosplaying as link at Otakon this weekend, and will be using the sheathe from this sword, attached to this belt that was basically made for this model.

The sword I will be using is this one. I know what you are thinking. Foam? Really? Yes. This is a relatively new product and is of far better quality than I could have expected or even hoped for. It is cosplay safe, light, and the best shape/size/detail/quality replica I have found for the price. if you plan on carrying one without getting arrested, this is the one.

There is another master sword replica out there that you need should watch out for. this one looks very similar to the second one above, but you will notice the blade looks mildly different in the photos. In truth, this one is far smaller than the above one, and is also sharp as hell. Can not recommend. Check the details like blade length and width before buying.

As for the shields, there are thankfully fewer options. As mentioned above, Fiberglassblades makes an amazing one, but it's super expensive. I'd like to own his shield and sword one day, but it will not be anytime soon.

Your mass produced choices as far as I can see are this one or this one

I have the first one, and it is a decent replica for the price. It is set to be held in your left hand, though you can remove the handle, so I expect you could modify it for more accurate use. It is also ready to be hung on a wall, and looks quite nice while doing so. Older models are more flat, while newer models are more curved like traditional shields (unless mine is just warped.) The Downsides are that the strap and handle are rather flimsy. I have reinforced the one I'm using this weekend by making my own leather strap and super gluing the handle in place. This will sadly prevent me from using this shield as a display, but I have an older model for that.

As for the second one, it looks to be a newer version of an earlier and different model. I don't have experience with it, but from what I can tell it seems to be a high quality replica. That said, the model I believe it is based on was not able to be hung on a wall, had the triforce crooked, had the bird painted on and not embossed, and could only be used in your right hand. Perhaps this is why they are pushing this new version. If you get this one, please let me know how it is, because I must say it looks good from the photos.

EDIT: Another user has reported to me that this model still has the issues I had with the earlier version. Neither the Crimson Loftwing nor the Triforce are guaranteed to be accurately placed. This may vary from shield to shield, so buyer beware.

PHEW! Hope that helps!

u/OPs_Mom_and_Dad · 3 pointsr/P90X

Hey there, P90X and Insanity grad who lost his body about two years ago after work/marriage/children. I've made it a mission to get my weight/health back on track since the beginning of the year, and like you, only have 30 minutes a day. Unlike you, I'm much more cardio focused, but lifting has been a huge help for me. So that said, I've been doing Max:30 since the beginning of the year, along with the lifting workouts from P90X3, and a few other programs sprinkled in as well.

Anyways, that's my backstory. I have sort of a ramble of thoughts that I figured would give you some food for thought on all of this. Also I've added headers, because this got super out of control.

Thoughts on T25 and Max:30

First, I've done T25 (just individual workouts, not the whole program) and Max:30, and I've gotta say, I was super disappointed with T25. This is actually the one I dreaded, which is a word I saw mentioned, it was truly painful to want to hit play because it's not a very intense program at all. On the flip side, of every BeachBody program I've done (I've done a lot of them) Max:30 is truly the best one I've ever done. Like, it's absolutely perfect. It's 30 minutes, no frills, you get straight to business and after 30 minutes you're done.

Like you're thinking, though, 80%+ of Max:30 is cardio. The remaining 20% is a lot of body exercises, and those are mainly bundled into the Tuesday/Thursday workouts from the program. Ironically, those were my least favorite workouts in the whole program (and a few other Max:30 grads I've spoken with have agreed).

For that final reason, on my second round of Max:30 (currently on Week 2 of that program) I've completely swapped out the Max:30 body-weight routines for P90X3 lifting ones. So far I'm super happy with the switch.

The best program to gain muscle mass

As far as gaining mass goes, the single best program is Body Beast. There's just no comparison. I did this one back in 2012 and my upper body has never looked better. It's a truly amazing program. This is the program I want to do the most, I'm super itching to get back into it, but I need to focus on cardio for another 30 lbs and don't want to start that program until I've hit the weight goal.

The problem with Body Beast is the DVD lengths. They're all over the place as far as time goes. All under an hour, but in the first block just barely. BUT, in the second block, the bulking block, which is actually the longest of the three blocks, all of the DVDs are around 30 minutes (the longest is Bulk Legs at 38 minutes).

My approach to 30 minutes

So, looking at all of that info, and a ton of info I haven't mentioned about many other home workout programs, I decided a while back that I just need to write my own programs using combinations of BB programs. Between the Insanity, P90X, P90X3, and Body Beast workout schedules, you can start to see a symmetry to them, and from there it's pretty easy to figure out how to write your own programs based on the outlines of these programs and your specific goals. Mainly I stick to P90X (M, W, F are lifting, one day of stretch in the middle, one of rest at the end, and the rest cardio) outline, but right now I'm doing a modification based on the Max:30 schedule.

I swear I'm getting to a point here

Anyways, after this long ass ramble, I wanted to let you know I wrote out a mass gaining program for myself that I'm planning to start in June. I'm basically using the Body Beast schedule, but I've swapped out the cardio workouts for Max:30 workouts, and for the lifting workouts that are excessively longer than 30 minutes I'm using P90X3 substitutes (ie. Body Beast Chest/Back is close to an hour, so I'm using P90X3 The Challenge on that day). If you have BB On Demand, or just happen to have a ton of BB DVDs lying around, you can easily put together a program like this on your own.

Bonus thought

Alright, one final thing because I love to preach about it. Kenpo X and MMX get a lot of flack because they may or may not be intense enough for people. I'll leave my comments as to why that is aside, but I like to share my only non-BeachBody program: The Bas Rutten CDs (Amazon Link for those interested). I found these on an MMA training forum many years ago when I was trying to spice up Kenpo X. Basically, this is Bas Rutten (old MMA fighter) calling out combos, and you deliver them. That's it. He does 10 2 minutes rounds or 7 3 minutes rounds, and the set includes CDs for Boxing, Kickboxing and MMA. Hands down, this is the single best marital arts cardio workout I've done. I come out soaked every single time, even when I shadow box it (it can be done on a bag or shadow boxed, your choice). Here's a video of a guy doing the MMA CD on a bag, to give you some idea of what I'm talking about. For those unsure, 1 = jab, 2 = jab/cross, 3 = jab/cross/hook, and 4 = jab/cross/hook/cross (or uppercut on the fourth). And Defense (only seen in the MMA one) is a sprawl or burpee.

I cannot express my love for these CDs enough. And especially, I love that the boxing one (though all of them, really) is a cardio workout that uses arms, not legs. This is an excellent way to get some extra shoulder work in while also getting cardio.

Anyways, that's my ridiculous ramble. Good luck out there fellow dad!

u/xrobin · 4 pointsr/Ultralight

Great, just running down your list here are my thoughts:

An SMD Lunar Solo would be 10oz lighter and $70 cheaper while still offering similar features and roominess. Granted you'd need a trekking pole. Mine weigh 5oz each and cost $60 for the pair, and they're nice to have for stream crossings and up and downhills.

The $40 Soto Amicus stove outperforms the $34 Pocket Rocket 2 in every metric and is pretty similar to the $70 PR Deluxe.

I'm not a fan of sporks, and much prefer a spoon, your milage may vary. This 75 cent spoon is similar to what I have and it's lasted me 25 years. Mine weighs .38oz

You don't need a canister stand

When I've camped in the Mojave I just slept with my food in an Opsack. In Yosemite you'll need a bear can but you can probably rent one or wait to purchase for when the time comes. If you're camping in an area where a bear hang is recommended then you can get a pre-made bear bag kit or just make one with a stuff sack and some good throwing line.

I have some merino shirts but only wear them in the colder shoulder seasons because they're too warm for me when hiking in summer. They're also really pricey. You could get a $10 quick drying t-shirt like this, or a synthetic long sleeve collared shirt from the thrift store or a Silver Ridge, to protect your arms and neck from the sun and bugs.

How modest do you want to be with shorts? Ranger panties are popular for being so light and have a great range of motion. Generic soccer shorts work well. Patagonia Baggies are popular.

For a rain jacket it's hard to beat the Frog Toggs UL2 for price and weight. I went to my local walmart and tried them on to find a good size. ~$18

For long pants I'd suggest Body Wrapper dance pants. Light, cheap, breathable, comfortable, windproof, keep the bugs away, surprisingly warm when sitting around camp.

I don't bring sleep clothes, just sleep in my hiking clothes.

Med kit suggestions- leukotape strips on a quick release sheet for blister prevention and bandages, a few sterile gauze pads to make bandages with the leukotape, ibuprofen for pain and swelling, anti-diarrheal pills, small dropper of dr bronners soap for cleaning wounds

Things you're missing:

  • Pack liner (garbage compactor bag or nylofume)

  • Tent stakes (I like mini groundhogs)

  • Dirty girl gaiters for keeping rocks out of your shoes

  • Sunglasses

  • Stocking cap/beanie (maybe your buff will work for that?)

  • Lighter, swiss army classic knife with scissors and toothpick, toothbrush and toothpaste, anti-chafe cream like trail toes or diaper cream, sunscreen, purell, lightload towel

  • poop kit with trowel, tp, zip locks for used tp, or go the bidet route and use water instead of tp

  • a couple smartwater bottles

  • you may or may not like having an umbrella to stay cool or hike with your hood down in the rain.

    Edit: a tip for lighterpack- there is a field for price and it'll add up the prices per category for you, making a running tally a little easier. there's also a link field which could maybe help you keep track of links to things you might want to buy.

    Once you've dialed in the list a little better, if you discover you're way under your budget then you could always consider upgrading something, like spending $100 more for a 10oz zpacks Hexamid Solo tent. Also, if you end up at a light enough weight, you could jump to a 14oz frameless pack which would be awesome.
u/PressPlayEveryDay · 4 pointsr/P90X

I'm glad you reached out. This is a small subreddit, but there are many enthusiastic participants.

First of all, the most important thing for you is to establish consistency. If you'll be more consistent with weights over bands (or vice versa) pick the one that you'll do.

I personally prefer weights because they are harder, I feel like I can precisely perform the movement that I want, and It is also easy to track progress. 5 pound increments are easier for me to track then inches and loops and colors on bands.

Having said that, there is nothing wrong with bands. If those are your only option, use them! Using bands is infinitely better than doing nothing.

Regarding pullups, I was in the same situation as you. I used a door frame bar that just chewed up my landlord's door frame. When I moved into my new house, I decided to not repeat that mistake and I bought a pullup tower instead.

This is the pullup tower I bought. I got it for $40.00 on Craigslist and it has been more than adequate. The additional dip bars and pullup bars have been very useful for P90X workouts as well.

Finally, nice job not letting your illness be an excuse. That's admirable.

u/adragonisnoslave · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Wow I... don't have anything under $1.21 including shipping :( Well, I do, but it was already bought for me! So.... I'm not going to add anything, that feels like cheating someone out of something. So, the only cheap thingie I have is an mp3. Harry Potter was my childhood. I grew up reading the books and watching the movies... growing up alongside the characters was a pretty magical experience. John Williams has written for many of my favorite films and he made Harry Potter that much more incredible.

I also would like a gift card, as I'm saving up for this! Don't laugh. Pole dancing is the only exercise other than yoga that I like and I love how I feel when I do it. It'd be awesome to not have to do it in front of others because that often keeps me from going... as does how pricey classes are. This pole costs the same as SIX classes. Seven with shipping. A little ridiculous, yeah? But yeah, I want the pole so I can do it at home and get even more fit and maybe boost my self-esteem and body image :)

u/swag_on_the_deep · 2 pointsr/PacificCrestTrail

A different perspective: if you like wearing shorts but you also need protection for your legs, there are good options for individual problems:



If you are just worried about sun protection, get some cheep cotton pajamas, bar non the best, most comfortable sun protection. Just dont expect these to provide warmth or dry fast. Also slow drying cotton is great for getting wet at a water source to keep you cool for you next miles.

Enlightened Equipment and Montbell make good ones too.


Leggings/tights/long underwear. Pretty self explanatory, many many brands available.

If your worried about scratchies / are doing a decent amount of bushwacking then your going to want some hiking pants like the author listed.

u/n88n · 4 pointsr/knots

i love rigging random hanging items from my basement ceiling. I am a rock climber and train ninja warrior obstacles so I like to hang all types of stuff.

My favorite way is to create loops with 1" tubular webbing (climbing stuff not hobby). You can buy rolls of one inch webbing for pretty cheap.


Then cut to size and use a water knot to make a loop out of the webbing. I loop it around the rafter on my ceiling and I clip a beaner or any thing else to the webbing and it supports a ton of weight. You can easy move it if you want. Or i just have slowly made a ton of loops around the basement so it is easy to create different courses or routes.

With your pullup bar you can drill holes in the end of the bar and bolt on eye loops. Then create two loops of webbing over the rafters in the garage and hook up the bar.

In my opinion a swinging pull up bar is not fun and personally i would want it fixed with no swing on it. gymnastics rings are a better option for pullups with movement.

These Nayoya ones are great. They come with the rings and easily adjustable webbing. pretty cheap and if you can work pull ups, muscle ups, dips and all kinds of bodyweight exercises. rings are the shit.


u/atreyuno · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

Just started the RR at /r/bodyweightfitness this week. After my first workout I realized that pull ups from the rafters in my basement and dips from my wobbly kitchen stools just won't cut it. The moldings over the doors of my place won't fit a pull up bar but I found a power tower on craigslist for $45!
I picked up a cheap yoga mat for outdoor workouts ($15), a 15lb slam ball ($25 & too heavy, btw), resistance bands ($7) and a jump rope ($10).

I've been lifting for 4 years and never cared for a home gym - but I'm super psyched about this new set up and my "wake and bake workout" routine that comes with it.

Now I'm seriously considering putting a squat rack and olympic bar with bumper plates in the basement. Hoping to find something on CL for a good price! Fingers crossed XX. Already ordered fatigue mats for the space at a great price on woot.

Have followed this protein bar recipe/ technique many times and it's stellar. Don't be intimidated by melted chocolate - it's super easy.

EDIT: Not DIY, I realize but I'm SO excited I couldn't not share.

u/mtnchkn · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

How to mount rings indoors?

I am completely new to the RR but want to start in the next week (home fitness with goals of core strength). I was going to get a pull-up bar but it seems just as easy for me to mount rings as it would be a bar. These were mentioned in a recent post:
I have 8.5' ceilings and am 6' tall (160 lbs; 35). I plan on using the kid's playroom in the mornings for this (along with the free app by mazurio). If this is a horrible idea, let me know but looking at the progressions getting the rings right away seems smart. (Some background: I was in crazy good shape as a swimmer till about 15 years ago, but even till 10 years ago still running marathons and doing triathlons. After that it was just soccer and surfing but since having kids 4 years ago I am pretty sedentary with a programming job, and want to turn that around for my core/posture and really my long term health. Would like to fold in some aerobic work with the RR eventually, but I see rest is super important so will see.)

u/dizzyvonblue · 0 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have a fitness and fertility wishlist. Any of those things would be life changing. I'm on and have been on a mission since last September to get fit. I'm positive it will solve my fertility problems. I'm down 15 pounds but want to keep going and lose about 20-30 more.

EDIT- or this stripper pole I'm in love the sport and I feel like this would be an activity that I would love and would help me get fit.

I just want to be healthy and be able to conceive so badly.

u/leilei67 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I'm a female in the bay as well and about your size.

I love my REI Flash 45! I just got it about a month ago and have taken it on one trip but I'm in love. Definitely check it out in the store and throw some of their weights in it. The price is nice as well!

These TNF shorts rock. I can't say enough good things about them. I think my thighs/butt are standard/athletic and the medium size that I have is definitely too big. They go up to XXL and they have short/regular/long inseam choices.

I carry the amazon dance pants as an emergency layer for hiking and for layering with my base layers at camp if it's chilly. Medium fits with room to spare.

Camp sandals! I just bought some Xero Shoes DIY Sandals. You will measure your feet to order the right size. I'm a size 8 normally. I cut the soles to size since I have less wide feet. I did a slightly heftier lace pattern. Total weight ended up being 148g. I'm pretty pleased with that. I haven't put them to the test yet though.

In my experience, the hardest part of losing weight is diet, and the hardest part of dieting is not recognizing hunger.

The human body loves food and we love eating. Unless I'm absolutely full, if you put some salty fries in front of me, I'm going to want to eat them. Not because my body actually needs it, but because my body wants it.

Dieting means training yourself to recognize that difference. Are you reaching for another spoonful because you like the taste of the food, or because you actually need it?

It's harder early on because your body is used to a certain level of consumption and will send signals when you don't hit that level because it wants to maintain your current resource reserves, while you (as a person) want to deplete your current reserves.

As for working out. Resistance training (weight lifting, etc.) is one of the absolute best ways to get your body in shape and keep it there. However, it is very difficult and arguably counterproductive (especially for someone in your position) to try to build muscle mass while also cutting your calorie intake.

You will be very hungry after your workouts and you will likely overeat. Another potential pitfall is if you quit working out but maintain your "workout" diet.

My suggestion is devoting yourself to body-weight exercises at home if there are hurdles keeping you from a regular gym routine (such as not having a routine), focus on your dieting, then change gears to muscle building once you feel like you're in control of your body.

Some body-weight exercises are very hard to do at home if you don't have specialized equipment. But if you have a floor, you can do pushups. And a pullup station will fit in most places (this is the one I use at home).

When starting with these exercises (especially pullups), don't be discouraged if you can't even do one. Everyone starts somewhere. The way you build your strength is to treat it as an eccentric exercise. In the case of pullups, what you would do is grab the bar, jump a bit (while you're holding it), then try to lower yourself as slowly as possible.

Eventually you get to the point where you can hold yourself up. That's when you move on to trying to pull yourself up, and you go from there.

Edit to add: When Arnold Schwarznegger was asked what his most recommended exercise would be (no weights or machines), his answer was "Chin ups, no question."

Welcome to Bodyweight. First off, read the FAQ so you understand everything. I recommend this routine (assuming that you are not too weak): http://i.imgur.com/o3bRo.png. The routine is good for beginners. Do it every other day, and you should be getting back in shape. Just remember to eat well and get enough rest. As for your dumbbell, you CAN switch out certain exercises, but I do not recommend isolation work until you get back in shape (in other words, don't do it yet).

You would really want to get a pair of gymnastic rings too. They're not too expensive and they're awesome.

Here's a good pair for $30.

And a better pair for $55

Enjoy your stay and read the faq!

u/Darkcharger · 1 pointr/running

I suggest reading the subreddit and checking out their progress pics. Here is a specific routine that is posted on there that I follow http://fitloop.co/ . The key to getting bigger/stronger with bodyweight stuff is to do "progressions": once something becomes too easy there is always something harder to do next. Things become extremely hard when gymnastic rings are incorporated and will strengthen muscles you never even knew you had (high suggest some they will kick your butt and are fun to use).

Also, you can most definitely get growth, not sure what bodyweight stuff you were following. Check out any male gymnastic dude, and youll see that they are ripped (especially from the rings). If you read the subtopic you'll see that growth is highly dependent on your diet as well, so you have to eat more to gain. Here is a video by bar brothers, these guys are ripped. You can find plently of vids like this from bodyweight stuff.

u/JackGetsIt · 2 pointsr/JoeRogan

You know I put a set of rings up in one of my spare bedrooms and was doing pull ups consistently on them before I heard him talking about it maybe 4 months ago because the pullup is such a great movement. I liked the idea of just hanging so I switched to doing my pull ups at the gym and just using my home rings as a quick stretch when I wake up or if I've been on the computer too long. I didn't have any health issues before but I really think its has made me feel less tight in my back and it's definitely helped with posture. I've also noticed a bit more grip strength at the gym because I'm basically greasing the groove by doing it so frequently.


Here are the rings I bought. They've been amazing.


I thought they were going to be junk for how little I paid for them but they are well built and the nylon webbing is very high quality.

I have a few tricks with how I set them up. Let me know if your interested and I can take some pictures.

What do you have already and what do you plan on buying?

When do you plan on starting? High/Low temps do you expect?

Some of this is repetitive, sorry. Also just my opinions, so use what's helpful, leave what's not.


It's much easier to see your gear if you make a Lighter Pack

If you can/haven't already bought, I would suggest a lighter weight sleeping bag or quilt. You can get a used bag or quilt in the 100-200 range. Sometimes even less if someone is starting out with MYOG (make your own gear). r/ULgeartrade and r/GearTrade as well as facebook gear trade groups are good places to look.

A better/warmer sleeping bag can also help you avoid needing the liner (for warmth at least).

I would take the 2 smart waters and leave the bladder.

I prefer wind pants to rain pants, particularly these Dance Pants

Knife and scissors generally do the same job, scissors are easier to use and the blade can be used like a knife.

u/MarbleZoo · 3 pointsr/normalnudes

/r/EatCheapAndHealthy is great.

When I wanted to put on weight it was 3-6 eggs, toast and a juice or a protein shake each day for breakfast, turkey sandwich for lunch, fruit and nuts throughout the day, and either two chicken breasts or whatever I felt like for dinner. Didn't plan on it being "health food," but that's more or less how it turned out. Once your main diet shifts to natural foods the shit becomes less appealing.

Bodyweight workouts can do a lot more than you might think, as well. Get a set of gymnastic rings if you can, they make any bodyweight workout dramatically harder and more productive by forcing many more muscles to work in order to maintain balance and form. The set I got served me well for a time, but shop around. Use them for pushups, pull ups, dips, anything. Get creative with them. Invent your own exercises.

My wife got that sword for me for Christmas off of Amazon. Mine didn't come with the hooks to hold it for some reason but we managed to get it attached.

u/unique-eggbeater · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I have these and really like them. They're cheap (at least at the moment - currently at 1/3 their normal price according to Amazon), sturdy, big enough to be comfortable while still being small enough to pop into a backpack, and the straps are easy enough to set up after you get used to it. The straps also have built-in velcro thingies to hold them rolled up. They're also easy to adjust mid-workout when going from rows to pull-ups or whatever.

As a disclaimer, I've only owned the one pair of rings, lol. But they are perfectly adequate for the RR.

u/sevan06 · 1 pointr/rugbyunion

I've been using a parachute (a cheap on I bought here) I usually sprint about 5x50m then I do 3x50m and release the chute at 20m. After I'll do 5x40m sprints without the chute with full rest in between sets. I've felt an improvement in my speed but it's still a work in progress. I've also been doing power cleans and other power lifting exercises to build hip power, which I'm sure has contributed, as well.
I hope some of this helps! Good luck!

I'm not a boxer, but I did end up buying a heavy bag with some gloves and wrist wraps a few months ago, just to get a different form of cardio. It get's the job done really well.

when looking for gloves, I ended up buying these, and they been pretty good so far. Everlast boxing gloves

from my experience, protecting your wrists/knuckles is the most important part, so make sure you get yourself some wraps. I got some pretty small hands, and yet 120" is barely enough to wrap both my wrist and knuckles, so I suggest you get the 180" wraps. wrist wraps

u/chrisbenson · 3 pointsr/Ultralight

You're welcome! Yeah, the place I linked to for those bottles- they also sell a lot of other small bottles that are great for repackaging other stuff, as well as odds and ends that can save you weight in other places.

Yeah, those are the pants I was talking about. You can get them at Amazon too. I know the waist looks goofy in the pics but it's a normal waist you'd find on any other wind pants, it's just tailored to ride high so a lot of people double it over a few times so it's not around your belly button. It's lightweight material so I don't think it would be too bad with a waist belt but I'm beltless so I can't say for sure.

I use a small xlite too in addition to the thinlight. When the ground is pokey the thinlight can protect the xlite. When it's cold I put the thinlight on top and it helps boost the warmth of the xlite. Sometimes I use the thinlight under my feet.

Been adding Heavy Bag into HIIT workouts and after a couple weeks decided I'd like to break the bank for some proper wraps and bag gloves. Haven't been able to find a good store nearby, but online selection is pretty good: they have about 3-4 different sets each from TITLE, Ringside, Hayabusa, Venum and Cleto Reyes. Was wondering if I could get some recommendations for those brands.

-8.7'' wrist, looking for 16oz gloves

-Flexible for price, $150/1100rmb max

-6in1ft, weigh about 210 pounds (hence the workout!)

-Training/bag only going 2-3 times a week.

Based on some research/recommendations been looking at this set in particular:

Hayabusa Tokushu

Also choosing between these wraps, not really sure what to look for other than 180 inch.





Thanks in advance!

Power towers are freestanding pull up/dip bar combos like this. The one I linked is pretty much the cheapest one available, and may also be best for inverted stuff like you were showing (no back rest for leg raises). I actually just bought this one and like it a lot except that the dip bars are a little far apart for me, but that's probably true of all the power tower models

I also have a door-frame bar (the kind in the video you linked) and it's also always worked great for me.

u/xythian · 1 pointr/fitness30plus

We have both the Jungle Gym XT and WOSS equipment at my gym and in my experience the WOSS higher quality (and cheaper, I think).


But, for the OP, if you have a place to hang a suspension trainer, then I would highly suggest you just get gymnastic rings instead. Same price or cheaper and more generally useful. The forced connection point of suspension trainers always feels a bit weird to me and rings have a long successful history in gymnastics. /r/bodyweightfitness will be more than happy to help you get your ring game on point.


^ Go with wood rings if you get rings, don't cheap out for plastic. Wood rings feel nice in the hand and plastic rings feel like garbage.

Most ppl around here recomment these MDUSA rings, theyre pretty sturdy and have a lifetime warrenty (noone has ever said they failed them. I also commonly see Nayoya rings _~30 bucks on amazon IIRC) being toted as well priced but great quality wooden rings

If you're still looking, this is the one I got for Christmas. I picked it out after spending some time looking for an inexpensive one. I'm pretty satisfied with it. Like the reviews state, the painting on the gem is more than a little sloppy. I will be doing a minor repaint on it but otherwise I'm very pleased with it. It's huge, heavy, and looks great (aside from the slightly sloppy painting). The enamel gold paint cost me $10, which still makes this very economical.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I've gone from 470lbs down to 299lbs, it's nice. I was lifting heavy before doing BWF though I stopped lifting for a year before transitioning, BWF is a totally different feel than lifting, the lifting helped but not as much as I thought it would. On the plus side a lot of my muscle has come back fairly quickly. I'm doing my first 'deload' week right now.

For the Iron Gym, not sure why I never thought of using those protruding grips! The Iron Gym I've got is rated at 300lbs and I've been using it since 335lbs without issue. So i'm hoping it's fine!

I'm interested in the rings for some type of push up progression and leg-assisted dips/L-sit. I don't have a very good way to do dips currently but I need some amount of leg support anyways, same with L-sit. Plus you get the bonus of stabilization muscle development with Rings.

Last question; Are there any solid quality cheap rings? Like this? Due to size I'm worried of issues.

Tent: Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo

You and I are the same build, this is a very inexpensive, light, one pole setup and roomy tent, you + gear no problem, if bought off of backcountry.com during their 20% off sale it’s like $170-180

Wind pants:


$20, 3.5 oz, you’ll want the medium

Trekking Poles: Cascade Mountain Tech Carbon Cork, $45 shipped on amazon

Torso warmth: Walmart> Climate right Cuddlduds fleece set $20 plus a down jacket from Uniqlo.

Pack is super personal, but anything from a 2016 Osprey Exos/ Sierra Designs Flex Capacitor/ ULA pack to a fancier Superior Wilderness Designs Long Haul 40 (definitely recommend based off of reviews here) or HMG (heard mixed things) will do the job.

These are amazing budget options, if you want to upgrade from here feel free but this stuff will handle the JMT no problem.

I made a thread, check my post history. The rings I do push-ups, fly, row, dips, etc etc.

I got my barbell from Rogue in their clearance area. It's the B&R bar since I like the feel of raw metal. The knurling isn't too bad.

Editing to add more: Here's a link to build your own platform that I followed. It would be better to have a helper with the materials because they're kinda heavy to lift/position by yourself. Especially the horse mat. I used 3/4" plywood and 3/4" MDF for the top part so I used 3/4" horse mat to try to make things as flush as possible.

I got this flat bench from Amazon. I'm happy with it. An adjustable would have been preferred but this serves it's purpose just fine and didn't break the bank.

Here are the rings I have, also from Amazon. I compared them to my friends Rogue rings and the differences are minimal. They might be a little "rough" but after using them for a bit, they'll break in and be fine.

All said and done, my whole setup was right around $1500 and I can do almost anything I want.

You could try to get ahold of Black Fencer's wasters. You can even get them at bulk price. (It seems a little difficult getting them to ship to the U.S., though.) (This is my first choice.)

The next best option would be Penti IIIs by PurpleHeart Armoury. They'll run you a bit higher than 100USD per sword, but they are worth it, in my opinion. (My club prefers this option for nylons.)

The cheapest option would be the Rawlings longsword (also available on Purpleheart Armoury). Don't get this one. It is extremely unreliable in even a mid-intensity bout and doesn't bind and wind well even in a (partner) drill; they are as wobbly as a cooked noodle. They also have poor point-of-balance, but you can fix it by attaching the steel pommel and crossguard options (which are sold separately; at that point, you have spent enough to get a penti, anyways.). However, under a tight budget, these do okay. They also seem the safest for free fencing.

I lied; the cheapest option is the Cold Steel Hand and Half Sword. Some people do a grinding mod to make it bearable. Don't get this.

These all hurt a good bit in my opinion. With gloves and a mask, I have never run into much more than bruising. You might want to get arm protectors if you are that worried, though. Just don't baseball swing your way through bouts. Practice good technique at necessary/reasonable intensity and martial consideration and sparring should be fine.

I also just noticed that you posted in /r/HEMA. Post in /r/WMA, instead.

Rings: well gymnastics rings typically comes with straps to easily hang and adjust them. The only real choice is whether you want them in wood or plastic (I prefer wood. It just feels better in my hands). Gymnastics rings are so simple in design and concepts, that I'd hazard the assumption that quality is mostly the same. Just find a cheap pair on Amazon.


Pull up bar:
I would personally prefer one, that is fixed in the ceiling, but many use the one, which is supposed to be put up on a door frame satisfyingly.



Look around for the best deals. The ones I've listed are just cursory searches.with rings and pull up bares you can do all sorts of rows, push ups, dips, pull ups and lots of other stuff.

From what I gather the Standard Issue and Hooks are basically the same with the exception the Hooks has outer labeling whereas the Stardard Issue has no identifiable markings, like how gis used to be, this also leaves room for more patches if that's your thing.

Another option you may consider that is inexpensive and good quality is Sanabul. https://www.amazon.com/Sanabul-Essentials-Version-Preshrunk-Fabric/dp/B00P9W4GD6/ref=sr_1_8?m=A14TJKA4FS5CS1&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1479691941&sr=1-8&th=1&psc=1

Prices basically increase for color of gi, which seems to be a standard industry practice for "flagship" mass produced gi of a company. I own one, but it's a gi they don't make anymore, but it's my favorite gi. A lot of guys at my gi have them as well, they've held up nicely.

Whatever you decide to buy, I think sizing is most important regardless. You don't want to be swimming in you gi, but you also don't want a gi that is too small. Generally, you can shrink a gi, you can't make them bigger.

You could buy a sturdier one that you drill into the wall. The guys at r/bodyweightfitness might have some suggestions if you are a heavier weight. For reference, back in 2016 I bought this, which has an option to drill into the wall, but I'm 115lb so I didn't try that and like being able to easily store it away when not in use since I'm in a small apartment and hang this on my guest bathroom doorframe. I also bought these olympic rings since they are easy to store when not used.

Generally, I'm weary of buying equipment that takes up a lot of space, is hard to store/get rid of, is pricey and that I wouldn't use regularly. r/bodyweightfitness helped me figure out some realistic options, so hopefully it can help others here who want a low-cost solution

Amazon. This one: http://www.amazon.com/Portable-Fitness-Exercise-Stripper-Spinning/dp/B005IPK7AU

I mean I really deliberated on getting this because it's not XPole but all the positive reviews along with the price convinced me.

Keep in mind that this off brand one doesn't come with a bag and it's also not bottom loading. I had 8" popcorn ceilings in my old place and it wasn't a hassle necessarily, but you do need a ladder or step stool or something. You would need one anyway to find the joists in your ceiling. Other than that I really can't tell the deference between mine and the official XPole ones my studio has.

If you're interested in a fun, exhausting workout that can help you with punching a bit I'd suggest Bas Rutten's MMA Workout. He was the UFC heavyweight champ so he knows a thing or two about punching stuff.


I really enjoy it. You can probably find it...elsewhere if you look around but Bas is good people so I'd buy it if you like it.

u/sylkworm · 1 pointr/martialarts

Jump rope, run, do body weight exercises (push-ups, pull-up, air squats, crunches, burpees, etc), stretch out, buy a set of rings and do pull ups and ring exercises.

I have the Bas Rutten workout, and you can do them with air punches/kicks if you don't have a bag. The kickboxing CD has 10 2-minute rounds with 1 minute rest in between or 10 3-minute rounds with 1-minute rest in between. If you can do the 2-minute round set with good technique, you have pretty decent cardio. IF you can do the 3-minute round set, you're bangkok ready.


There's also the Precision Strike app that you can get for your phone, where it calls out combinations and does round timers. I used to use it more, but I find I like the pacing of Bas's workouts better.

Finally, you can always just pull up a workout video on youtube. Some might require you to work a heavy bag. Some won't.

Sanabul is pretty cheap (for a gi, still kind of expensive in general) and is well regarded. I think it runs big though. Based on what I know, which is not much (I haven't been training long enough), we're at the point where even budget Gis like this should hold up for a while:


Edit: It looks like your jiu jitsu gear is a bit cheaper and comes with a free belt.


u/UniverseChamp · 2 pointsr/gainit

Yeah, the volume seems pretty high. Three days of that should help a lot with making gains. Otherwise, maybe squeeze in a couple of quick workouts at home?

You should also check into buying some cheap gear, like bands or a weight vest to supplement your workout. I wrote this up for someone a while back:

Here’s what I would recommend for starting home training balancing cost and utility. Obviously, if you afford all of it and have the space, just do that.

1-pullup bar or rings

2-resistance bands

3-dumbbells (shop for used, if possible, if space is tight try these)

4-adjustable bench (same, used benches go for as low as $30)

5-barbell set (time to start deadlifting)

6-power rack (don’t go cheap here)

u/jvhero · 2 pointsr/bjj
  1. Ceck out u/ragnar_deerslayer post on Danaher's ENTER THE SYSTEM on the cheap

  2. Best Deal I've seen I don't personally own one, but we have a guy that wears one and it seems pretty nice. Otherwise, check out BJJHQ for good deals on gear.
u/PancakeInvaders · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Rings are not expensive, around 30$ the pair. You just need somewhere to hang them from (garage rafters, tree, pullup bar, ceiling mounts, park, etc), it's better if it's something high, as it will allow you to do more things, but even a simple doorway pullup bar is enough to do the basics like rows, pullups, dips, and pushups. It also has the benefit of not taking a lot of space (wich I personally consider a huge pro)

On them you can do anything from rows, pullups, dips, muscle ups, ring pushups, toes to bar, and L-Sits, to planches, levers, iron crosses, malteses, etc

These should do (any other brand will too).

u/bosun120 · 14 pointsr/Ultralight

Get these instead: https://www.amazon.com/Body-Wrappers-Ripstop-Pants-701/dp/B0002UR7SQ

Sizing chart here: https://www.discountdance.com/dancewear/style_701.html

~3 oz, <$20, relaxed fit to layer over tights, dries super quick.

Wind pants > rain pants for most 3-season conditions because the heat generated by your legs hiking needs to vent somewhere, otherwise you're going to sweat & wet out anyways. Plus getting wet on your legs doesn't matter as much as your body core for warmth.

u/SunTzuWarmaster · 7 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I got these guys. I would urge you NOT to cheap out on this product, as its failure could be life-threatening. Fundamentally, BWF is really, really cheap. Total investment for me is ~$50 ($30 rings, $20 building-my-own paralettes). Considering that $50 will last you more than a year, it is, at most, 10% of the cost of a year of crossfit membership.

Some words on at-home training:

  • If you have rings mounted comfortable enough to swing your legs a little, you don't need a pullup bar, see my last video for an example of placements.
  • Get a band or two for stretching. Rings are more flexibility-demanding than is typical. I assume that you have a broom.
  • Get some free weights. I have have 2 30#, 2 15#, and a 45# kettlebell. This covers about all your basic lifts.
  • Do high-rep bicep curls. This will even you out when you start having elbow problems from pulling exercises.
  • Drill false grip!
  • Clear a space. The most important part of your home gym is the space to actually work out. Your space should be large enough to do a full yoga session in, at a minimum. Ideally it should be big enough to fall over from a handstand. Outside areas are bonus points ;).
u/larry_darrell_ · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Yeah I would love to get a set of them as well. These have been on my amazon wish list for awhile. I've been trying to draw the line and resist since I already buy too much stuff I want

u/Iisterine · 4 pointsr/MuayThai

i was super skeptical with this purchase, but decided for the price i bought my new gloves vs the price of this, it was worth a shot.


Totally worth the investment, I've been using this for the last 3-4 months and the freshness of both the gloves and the deodorizer is still there. I literally just leave the deodorizer in the glove after training and it absorbs the sweat / leaves a VERY nice smell in my gloves.


u/openg123 · 9 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I commented on this before, so copy and pasting!

I didn't get the USMD ones because of the 1.25" ring thickness and wanted 1.11" Olympic sized ones so I started looking elsewhere. I ended up picking these up Rep Wood Rings

Things I like about them:

  • A lot cheaper at $49
  • 1.11" Olympic sized ring thickness
  • The straps are numbered so it's easier to get the rings to the same height
  • Velcro mini straps by the buckle for securing excess unused portion of the straps

    Feels great in the hands, highly recommended!
u/AdabadaYou · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

MDUSA is having a labor-day sale and their wooden rings are probably the best value you'll see for wooden rings right now; however, the plastic rings are still cheaper. These are what I got: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009RA6C1K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 although I think I remember them being $30 not $40. At $40 you might as well splurge the extra $10-20 and just get nice wooden rings.

u/Darth_Tard · 2 pointsr/MuayThai

Make sure that you purchase wraps that are 180 inches in length. Don't trust anything that doesn't list a length. Also, 100% cotton wraps are not what you want. You will want elastic cotton wraps (they will stretch a bit, giving a tighter fit and allowing more flexibility while maintaining good support), also called mexican style wraps. These are the wraps I use, and I wouldn't get anything else.

u/AFspectre · 3 pointsr/bjj

personally i have tried:



So far I have the most mat time with the Gr1ps gi that I own and have been super happy with the fit/weight/durability of it, and just got a new one for Black Friday. I just got the Habrok but so far I like it.

Quite a few people that I have trained with have had the Sanabul gi and they seem to hold up well. The people I know that have them like them.

I will probably get grief for this but when I started I got this one, since I couldnt afford an x pole:Pole

Do what the others suggested with vinegar, or even a half vodka half water solution.

[After that, buy these] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0140JKN2G/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1I), got a pair for my gloves and stuff them in right after a game, my gloves smell great, they'll work for skates too.

I'm not an expert, but I was in a similar situation to you (diamond push-ups too easy), so I recently bought some rings. I spent $35 on these Titan wood rings on amazon, and I'm really happy with them. Using them for the recommended routine (dips, push ups), I have already seen and felt a noticeable difference in my chest and arms.

u/jkr · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Yep, they come with straps. These are the one I got:


I'm sure the wooden ones that people recommend are better, but these do the job just fine, they're very solid, and I haven't had any problems with them getting slippery from sweat in the sort of workouts I do. Even if I upgrade to wood in the future, I'll still probably want to have these around for outside use.

u/HamHockMcGee · 2 pointsr/homegym

Instead of buying a dip attachment, buy a pair of gymnastic rings on Amazon for 30-40 dollars. Rings would allow you to do pull ups as well as some other exercises. It is likely cheaper. A dip attachment for your rack will certainly be needed as you'll likely be dipping 2-3 plates. If you're not into weighted dips, consider it as an option.

Here's an example:

u/Carlton_Honeycomb · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Yes; they will definitely add a lot to your setup.

I would recommend spending an extra $10 on these. But yeah, dips, static holds, rows, push-ups, planks, other core work can all be done with your setup. Don't forget, rings are portable; you can hang them from a tree in a park, your backyard, on vacation, etc, so you could use them for pull-ups, muscle ups, etc.

u/jakehildreth · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

What do you consider cheap? You could buy a set of rings and hang them from your pullup bar. Not only will you be able to do inverted rows, but you'll be able to do lots of other fun stuff as you get stronger.

Here's the set I bought.

My bag is an Everlast C3 Foam bag, which is supposedly one of Everlast's higher end bags. It's been about a month and it's holding up fine. Ringside and Title make decent bags, too. I also have the Everlast bag stand, which is noisy and creaky, but it does the job.

I ask because I did take the Amazon Ivermectin orally once to kill the demodex internally as well. Its 100% OK for human consumption. A lot of users have reported doing this for either demodex or scabies. I was desperate and I did it. Im 100% OK and it worked in conjunction with topical application of the same product.

This is the brand I purchased, squeezed a 200lb dose and swallowed it before bed. It tastes like the worst apple chapstick ever. I dont know if its the oral dose or the topical dose that helped but it did....


After I finish the soolantra, i doubt I will purchase it again from the pharmacy. I will continue to purchase the medication linked above as its stronger and much much cheaper.

Good luck, bro!

u/InternalEnergy · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Unweighted bicep curls won't do much no matter how many reps. If you want hypertrophy, you need significant resistance. Fill some jugs of water (~8 lb/US gal)

Rings are not expensive and unlock a lot of really cool and challenging movements. $40 buys a decent set. Highly recommend.

u/my-fitness-acct · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I went cheap cheap on my rings. Definitely not wood handles there (some kind of textured plastic). But the straps are rated for 1,000lbs so you should be good on that end. As for placement on the bar, if the bar is fine when you hang/pull from the wide grip position, I wouldn't worry about it at all!

edit: make sure you're pulling the right direction. You want your weight to pull the bar into the door frame. This pic is a little deceiving - I would do my rows facing the camera in that picture. Otherwise you're going to pull the bar away from the door frame and possibly out of it. Does that make sense?

u/hikemhigh · -1 pointsr/pics

Hello roommate. I don't really have a question, more of a suggestion. Get one of these bad boys on Amazon for $16. Free shipping with Amazon prime. It's a ninja sword but in the length of a machete.

This is a must have. Bas breaks down the techniques really well. Also the CD workouts are intense and will definitely have you ready to start working out in a gym. We used to start our workouts with the all-around fighting track back when I was training seriously.

Edit: I'll add one thing that I think is important. Training too much on a heavy bag can lead to pushing your punches. It's good to alternate between shadow boxing and bag training.

u/AidosKynee · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I just got my first set of real rings (which work way better than my homemade version). However, I have a few questions about their use. For reference, I bought the Nayoya Gymnastics Rings, as they seemed very popular around here.

  1. How do you efficiently switch between heights while doing the RR? For example, I'm doing ring push-ups paired with tucked rows, and it's very annoying to pull the rings up, make sure they're the right height, make sure they're the same height, etc.
  2. Along these lines, I was thinking about marking the positions for various heights, as the straps have no indicators. Any advice for what to use? Do you just draw on it with a white marker or something?
  3. Finally, my rings often slip ~0.5-1 cm when I first put weight on them after adjustment. I'm stringing them the right way, and there's no twist in the strap. Am I just being too hasty?

It's hanging on my wall right now. I wouldn't ever buy this one with the intention of using it as a real sword though as the hilt is just a metal casing snapped around it fairly insecurely.

u/vicious_armbar · 2 pointsr/asktrp

If you want to learn how to properly strike so you can fight then your best bet is to find a boxing or Thai boxing coach at a boxing gym or mma school to teach you the basics.

Most MMA schools let people pay a "mat fee" [a cash payment at the door] instead of buying a membership. This is much cheaper if you just want to work on one aspect [striking for instance], or won't be able to come to the gym that often. Talk with the owners of local boxing/mma gyms around your area. In my experience they're always willing to work something out with you.

If you only want to hit the bag for fitness, and don't care as much about fighting or proper technique then you should download the Bas Rutten MMA Workout. Bas is a famous mma fighter, who crossed over from kickboxing to MMA. He goes over how to properly punch and kick; then he has 4 different workouts that you can use on the heavy bag [Boxing, Thai Boxing, All-Round Fighting, and the All-Round Workout].

Here's some reviews for it: http://www.amazon.com/BAS-RUTTEN-MMA-Workout-CD-DVD/dp/B00CXS6T02

Here's a torrent where he explains how to properly strike. If you're only interested in the striking part you can just download those video files and skip the others to make the download go faster: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/4087165/Bass_Rutten_Big_dvdA_s_of_Combat

Here's a torrent his workout routines: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/3438981/Bas_Rutten_MMA_Workout

Remember to seed the torrents!

As another poster said you're going to want to get some non-elastic hand wraps and some bag gloves. If you repeatedly hit the heavy bag with any kind of force without these items you're eventually going to injure your hands.

If you want to mix it up you can practice striking on the ground. I've been doing this drill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyLOxIJqi0o

After 4 rounds at 5 minutes each you'll be pretty tired.

Might want to go with Thai-style pads rather than focus mitts. I've seen them as cheap as $30 on MMAHQ.com (a deal-a-day website like Woot but for gear).

Generally, they're easier to hold but not quite as satisfying to hit. They don't give as much "pop" as mitts and the holder can't shift them quite as quickly. Since you guys are just looking for the basics, I'd consider picking up Bas' workout - it's made for heavy bag but with a partner you'd quickly pick up where to hold for each other and when to switch the pads up (for knees and kicks), and the DVD would at least get you some help with the form of the strikes. Plus it's Bas, he's goddamn hilarious.

It's the weekend and allow me to tell you a story.

When I was a small child my grandmother told me of a group of people from legend. These were warriors from a time when bandits ruled the streets and the governments were ruthless. These warriors honed their skills in secret, biding their time until a day came when they could free the people from oppression. Now I didn't actually think this was any more than a fairy tale, until last week...

I was at an assembly on free speech, and what did I see? A warrior of old gliding through the crowd. No one noticed him except me. I knew this was my chance to make something of myself, to join his ranks and become a warrior for the people! So I ran up and tapped him on the shoulder as quickly as I could.

He got really scared and dropped his sword, and it broke.

Now I owe him one of these...

This one is really awesome. It's a perfect match for the Twilight Princess master sword, but for some reason the hilt is black with a red gem instead of blue with gold. (I think it's supposed to be Shadow Link's or something). I remember seeing a blue version once, but I can't find it.

I think for you or for your kids (I grew up on loony toons and roger rabbit and every kid needs to watch this movie at LEAST once.)

Then for me, I want to say these because they're fun and I could wear them at work, but the more reasonable, realist side of me says I need this more because my cat is a furbeast and his regular slicker brush just isn't hacking it this year.

Thanks for the contest!

Are you in search of gymnastic rings friend? I have a pair I just picked up to practice muscle up transitions at home, but turns out the day they arrived I magically was able to bang out like 8 ring MU's at my box for the first time. If you pay for shipping you can have them.


u/KCrobble · 6 pointsr/ULgeartrade

These are great for the price, they might be 3 oz. in small (my XL are 3.4 oz IIRC)

Vinegar. Pour a tablespoon into your washing machine when washing your clothes. Create a vinegar/water solution and spray in your gloves. You could also get some glove deoderizers from Amazon.

This is simultaneously so distressing and intriguing to read. Unpicking denial from the outside seems impossible to me. I have to say as a former ass-head, the one thing that my wife could have done that would have worried me would be exactly what you are doing: just getting on with it yourself. Sounds like you are switched on now. I wonder what excuse he will come up with when you are doing one-handed handstands with no excess body fat.

Yes, my wife is relieved but after 112 days also irritated with my tedious conversations about fitness and the rings I hung from the ceiling hitting her on the head in the dark. :)

Ok, for some reason I thought you had the equivalent of stripper poles set up with wires going between them. I guess it was the camera perspective.


Now that I think of it, a pair of these would probably work pretty well and give you a wider range of possible movements. Though they wont move in response to your strikes.

Here you go!! Found it on amazon. You can also get the shield for another $45! ha

u/Astronaut_Cock · 4 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

That's cool but you could have got something like this http://www.amazon.com/ProSource-Exercise-Fitness-Gymnastic-Rings/dp/B0031QCS8C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375621353&sr=8-1&keywords=olympics+ring+set which opens up a big world of possibilities. I use that off a wall mounted pull up bar.

u/dragonalighted · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

The ones I got are Nayoya (amazon link)

I like them, they have been working for me really well.

u/dorlclwm · 1 pointr/poledancing

One last question --I saw this on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/X-Dance-Portable-Fitness-Exercise-Spinning/dp/B005IPK7AU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1427842164&sr=8-4&keywords=xpole
I actually think I've heard a little bit about x-dance and their pole quality, but I was wondering if this would be a good alternate considering that it's much cheaper than xpole.

u/phatphoeater · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I just purchased these rings but I'm just a beginner. I spent a lot of time reading about sizing and material. Wood is supposed to provide good grip despite sweaty hands without the need for chalk. They don't hold up outdoors though. I went with the FIG (1.11") diameter. I also wanted the marked straps for easier adjustments.

I hung mine on my doorway pull up bar and started working on top support, dip negatives, and rows. I bought them because my chairs/parallel bar setup was too unstable for dips. No complaints yet.

some people are happy with this also:

I'd go for something like Cold Steel Training Swords. Not going to break on you anytime throughout the night and really blunt so you can hit your buddies with it. Downside is that up close it is obviously a training sword. Also, you'll have to make a scabbard or just make a loop to put it.

That said, if you are going for looks maybe this or this or this would be a better choice. However, my experience with crap quality like this is it will break and it is marginally sharp so you could hurt someone or yourself if you unsheath it.

I'm not a pro on swords, but it's definitely not a Katana. But here is a link to the exact sword : http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Agent-Tactical-Ninja-Sword/dp/B002898XBO

I was going to bolt it down at the beginning, but once I loaded the weights on it, it's solid. Just tossed some of these on it as well.

u/kojak2091 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

idk if it's in your budget, but it might just be easier to buy a(nother) set of rings that come with straps. I believe these are the ones i use.

u/Grant638 · 1 pointr/zelda

I think they may be one of a kind, sorry pal. Amazon has some really nice ones though, specifically this one.

u/Haragorn · 1 pointr/Fitness

Check out /r/bodyweightfitness and the Recommended Routine. I think the only other equipment you'd need to get is a set of rings. The BWFRR is a full program on its own, but you can throw in other stuff as you like.

u/somewhat_interested · 0 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I recently picked these up:


So far they are sturdy, quick to adjust, and pretty cheap.

u/CostaBJJ · 2 pointsr/bjj

consider asking the parents of the other 50% to make some donation. to buy 2 gis for their kid from like amazon, the Sanabul is real cheap, and donate one.

u/dianeruth · -1 pointsr/poledancing

If they each donate 20$ you can set up two of those cheap made in china poles.


I have one that I got for $95 on ebay, and yeah they aren't perfect, they aren't an x-pole(in fact mine was labeled as a d-pole), but a beginner probably wouldn't know the difference anyways. It would make a huge difference to have a ~4:1 ratio instead of 11:1 if you think that you could finagle the funds.

If you are wondering my only negatives are that chrome would not be my first choice for finish and the finish came somewhat scuffed, but otherwise it's functionally the same as any other pole.

u/charming__quark · 2 pointsr/WellnessOver30

I would go for something like this:


Pull ups. RAWR!!

But if I was going for a cardio machine I would buy a treadmill.
