Come on people!
If you’re going to use homemade equipment at least check it for security, stability, durability, loose screws, cracks in material, etc. etc.
Obviously I’m all for saving a few greenbacks by making my own stuff. But when I’m training clients (yes, I am a trainer) I almost never put them on homemade stuff. Sandbags are the definite exception, but stuff like suspension straps, a mace, and pull up bars I go for the real thing.
Here’s a good reason to follow my advice.
