Homemade Prowler
 
1 Attachment(s)
Here's the "ghetto Prowler" I recently made for my gym. I don't start conditioning as part of my contest prep for another four weeks, but this thing has been KILLING my two training partners (both beautiful females in their early-twenties, by the way), and I can't wait to start wearing the thing out ...

Thought about putting any metal shoe protectors in the corners to protect the wood for a bit longer? It may not be feasible, of course.

After this pic was taken, I added another 2 x 6 to each side of the bottom as "skis", to make sure the bolts on the bottom were covered up. We do all our Prowler work in the parking lot, and the wood has proven terrific on the pavement! We've beaten the crap out of this thing and while the wood holds up remarkably well on the bottom, I figure it's no big deal to have to put new 2 x 6's on every few months if need be (I have a lot of extra 2 x 6's).

Looks like you got it covered :rockon:

Haha, yeah, I guess. I'm always looking to make stuff better, though, so suggestions are always welcome.

Good post. Going to sticky this in case anyone has more questions.

Thanks! Am hoping to shoot video of it in action tonight; will upload it to my YouTube channel and share here.

Excellent.

I hope you typed that in Mr. Burns' voice, 'cause that's how I read it.
