    thanks for sharing this John! This thing looks like a game-changer for me. Since I started working full-time I haven't found (made) the time to go to the gym at all. This is affordable for home use and by all accounts provides a great workout.

    pics are helpful! I like the use of threaded rod to hook straps to, as opposed to buying the factory-available ones. I found the machine on Canadian amazon site for just over 800 USD shipped, which is a steal up here.

    It looks like it would be great for a cardio workout.

    yah, the hooks they sent were to short for me. these are 2 long bolts, big washer and double nut to keep tight. works great.

    brent k, its more of an HIIT workout, really gets the heart pumping and gets my bi's, shoulders and traps tight and pumped. i use qa vitaglide for cardio. what i like is the way it hits my rear delts and upper back.i like doing the 30/30 intervals. 30 sec sprint/ 30 sec rest. after 10-15 sets my arms are screaming.

    tip, be sure and bolt to the wall and dont get the stand.
    thing is built very well.

    Just wondering, did those wrist grips come with the Concept 2 or did you get those seperately? I haven't got the grip to hold on and pull down, which is similar to yourself I imagine.
