    Do dips using the armrests of your chair. Crank out 10-30 every 30 minutes instead of doing a static weight shift. It costs nothing.

    Zaphod,

    Give James a call, he's pretty responsive. I've got a 1st generation of one of the machines I would like to get for the Gym in my building.

    It's not inexpensive and 300 klicks roundtrip would actually let yo try it all out.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the input everyone, the stuff locally built is great, I've used it before in a rehab gym here in edmonton Sailor, but the price-tag is prohibitive for me, same goes for the uppertone, looks like a nice peice of equipment but not gonna happen.

    Picked up the local classifieds tonight I'm going to buy an old universal home gym and make it work, a York 2600, after removing the seats and benches I should be able to get a pec deck, shoulder press, high and low pulleys, and a lat pulldown out of that machine, with a 260lb stack for 400 bucks , a couple small freeweights for forearm and scapular exercises and I'm I'm laughing
