Hey, BRHemp here (my name, not my hobby.)  44 yr old Batman wannabe.  LV1 and 2 CF instructor who makes most of his own stuff.  I have a family and child support so I'm not exactly rolling in the dough.  I am one of those guys in green who run around in the desert looking for people and drugs that shouldn't be here.  You might have seen me on Border Wars.  Anyway, I'm always looking for people who want to get fit and have fun.

 

Me??? I was 245 lbs two years ago with a 40 inch waist.  Not the image of law enforcement that I should have been.  I started doing Crossfit and loved it.  Dropped 35 lbs, and 6 inches off my waist.  Got a ton of certs.  But wasn't real happy with how some of the things were promoted i.e. pay lots of money for things that you can make on your own (sand bags, bulgarian sand bags, tires, etc.)  So I started researching on my own and lo and behold found Nerd Fitness.  WOW.  People like me who want to get healthier and not spend their entire paycheck to do it

 

I have my own garage gym where I train and train family and friends, The Old Bastard's Gym. Come and get your snatch fixed at the OB GYM heh heh heh.  Most of the stuff I started with I paid handsomely for.  Now I try to make as much as my own stuff as possible.

 

I look forward to hearing from like minded people.  And yes I am a nerd, or at least I'm told on a daily basis by my fiance, kids, co-workers and students.  Yeah, I said it, so there.  and Yes I really do want to be Batman.  Always have, always will. 

 

Hope to hear from my nerd fitness brothers and sisters.

Thanks for the responses. I'll post pics when I make some more equipment.

Always be yourself.  Unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman.

I've always had so much admiration for Batman and his ilk. Hence the Green Arrow profile picture. I have always wanted to become a super hero. If only I we're a billionaire playboy.

 

You create your own gear? Would you be able to help me make my own gear as I am on a very tight budget and can't afford anything online or in a store.

So this weekend I made some parallets for handstand pushups, l-sits and dips.  This weekend is sandbags using some Army surplus bags, contractor bags, duct tape and sand.  Also, working on some farmer carry handles using tow straps.  $10 for those compared to $135 for stuff that is offered on the internet.  Should be interesting.

I have been looking into making my own parallets. Anything offered on the internet is simply too expensive. What diff you use to make them?

I used 2 inch PVC pipe.  It took me about 1 hour to make 2 of them.  Super easy.  I found the plans on the crossfit site for free.  I'm going to make some farmer carry handles out of tie downs and garden hose this weekend
