Diy garage gym ideas

Convenience

If pushing your way through a crowded gym sounds less than appealing, then building a home gym will be a worthwhile project. Along with location convenience, having your own gym at home means you can control cleanliness, select the music, and spend as much time on the treadmill as you want.

Affordability

While the initial cost of making a home gym can be high, youll save money on a fitness membership in the endless run. The average gym membership in the U.S. is around $60 a month, and almost 67% of those memberships are unused.

Thats not counting unique fitness options love CrossFit and Pilates, which can be even more expensive. Fortunately, a home gym setup doesnt own to be pricey! Glance for used equipment and accessories for your fitness room that are high quality for a low price.

Home Resale Value

Adding a workout room to your home can up more than your fitness game. It can also increase resale value! Even if a potential buyer doesnt desire to use the space for a home gym, simply having flexible square footage can provide excellent worth for your home.


The Quick & Dirty On The Reverse Hyper Machine

First of every, let’s quickly touch on the reverse hyper.

The reverse hyper is a fairly hyped machine that numerous people swear by when it comes to posterior chain development and low back prehab/rehab.

The general thought is that a reverse hyper machine, invented by renowned powerlifting coach, Louie Simmons, decompresses the spine through a swinging motion.

This pendulum-like movement not only stretches the spine, but it also takes pressure off of the spine. In doing so, the theory is that it flushes the lower back muscles with blood and fills the spinal column with spinal fluid.

This dynamic strength movement can lead to improved recovery in the lower lumbar in addition to the glutes, hamstrings, and hips.

Now, while the reverse hyper is a highly sought after machine with some favorite belief that it will work wonders on the back, there is some controversy around this.

For example, Chris Duffin (and others), maintain that there are better options out there to manage back and spinal health.

This article isn’t really intended to spark a debate, however.

Only you can decide if having a reverse hyper is a worthy investment.

If you deem it as such, but again, you don’t love that it’s expensive or that it takes up a lot of space, then the under DIY reverse hyper plan is a grand option assuming you own a rack with spotter arms or heavy-duty cross members.

Let me guess

You desire a reverse hyper

But you either don’t love the high price tag or you don’t own the space for one

Well, I own excellent news

Thanks to Nate Evans, you can build your extremely own reverse hyper ON YOUR RACK for around $60 (or less) in total.

So not only do you avoid the $$1, price tag (depending on the company), but you also avoid taking up a bunch of floor space.

Let’s discover out how.


DIY Reverse Hyper Machine

Nate Evans has been gracious enough to document his build I’d love to thank him for sharing this with the community.

You can discover more from him on his Instagram.

The following is from Nate:

As every other garage/home gymer I own an endless list of pieces of equipment I desire to add to my collection. One large piece of equipment that I wanted extremely badly was a reverse hyper. I had mainly wanted it to strengthen my low back, hammies, and for spinal decompression. I knew they were expensive, but had no thought how expensive (westside $+, rogue $+, titian $+) or large they were.

I saw a Rogue reverse hyper in person at Iron Valley Barbell in Indy, and that thing was monstrous! I knew I wanted one, but I didn’t desire to pay (or couldn’t afford) one that was manufactured. With that in mind I started looking up some DIY reverse hyper plans. Though I found some really excellent plans with a smaller footprint than buying one, they were still helpful of large for my space. The smallest reverse hyper I found (DIY or manufactured) was the Westside Scout, which folds up to save space, but it’s still a whopping $

I started brainstorming about how I could make one to accommodate my needs and space confinements.

I had recently upgraded my half rack to a Fitness Gear half rack with spotter arms. I got to looking at those spotter arms one day and thought to myself, man it would be slick if I could just put one on my spotter arms and remove when I was done. So that’s exactly what I did. I made a table top reverse hyper. When I’m ready to use, I just set my spotter arms at the height I need, put it on top and do my sets. When I’m every finished, I take it off and set it along the wall or behind my rack.

For about $$60 bucks you can make your own space-saving reverse hyper too!

Quick Note Before The Instructions

Since building mine, I own thought of one improvement I would incorporate if I built another:

Instead of using 24 to support the topper, I would use 44 instead.

This way you could drill holes in the front for handles (dowel rods or black pipe could be used). I just grab the rack for support now.

I own included the improved version in the material list.

Below is a rough materials list depending on the width between spotter arms and the depth of them as well.

Schematics

Materials Needed

Wood

  1. 1 ½” or ¾” 4’x4’ sheet of plywood (your preference). I only needed a half sheet because the dimensions of the top of mine was 48” x 22”
  2. 8’ 44’s (I just got the cheapest from Lowes). This will depend on the width of your rack and depth of spotter arms.

    I could own done mine with just 2)

Misc.

  1. 2 – 1” x ” dowel rods or black pipe. If you use black pipe I would add 2 more flanges (for handles your preference)
  2. 1 – box of wood screws. You’re going to need at least 5” to fasten every 44’s together
  3. 1 – Strap I use the Bodylastics anchor here, but you could use others love this from Rogue
  4. Padding for top Optional

Tools Needed

  1. Measure and cut plywood top.
  2. Pipe wrenches
  3. Measure and cut 44’s for bottom supports (length should be the depth of your spotter arms/crossmembers.

    For me it was 22”.).

  4. Decide where you desire your cross bar (swing arm) to be. I chose to put mine in the front 1/3 of mine because the depth was only 22”. You can do this same thing or put where you ponder will benefit you most.
  5. Measure and cut 3 44 pieces for top supports (should be the width of your rack + 4”.

    Diy garage gym ideas

    Mine were 48”).

  6. Mark holes where you prefer handles to be if you wish to include them.
  7. Lay out bottom supports and put top supports on top of them. Space them out evenly (I just took 22/3 and that’s where I put the centers).
  8. 1 ¼ spade bit & 1” spade bit if you select to use dowel rod handles
  9. Drill 1” holes approx if you use dowel rods (you can select a depth or drill every the way through. A 1” dowel rod will fit extremely snug and move extremely little. If you desire to use pipe for handles, drill every the way through with 1 ¼” spade bit).
  10. Screw together (I pre-drilled holes because I was using 24 for my top supports).
  11. Screw remaining pipes (8”/10” mine were 10”) into the top of T (these are your weight sleeves) and tighten with a pipe wrench.
  12. Feed pipe (18”/24” mine were 24”) into holes drilled on base supports.

    Screw together in top part of T and tighten with a pipe wrench (if you own pipe exposed exterior of supports, put flanges on).

  13. Measure the width of you spotter arms/cross members (outside to exterior edge) and the depth (mine was 45” x 22”). Add 3” so your 44’s are centered on the arms (Roughly 2” of overhang, but this depends on how true the 44 is).
  14. Mark and use 1 ¼” spade bit to drill holes.
  15. Drill
  16. Circular saw
  17. Screw 24” drop-down pipe into the bottom of the T and screw the other finish into the bottom of the remaining T.
  18. Tape measure
  19. Place plywood on top of supports and drill down.
  20. *Optional*  If you own padding you desire to add, glue/staple/screw on top.

Constructions/Assembly

  • Decide where you desire your cross bar (swing arm) to be.

    I chose to put mine in the front 1/3 of mine because the depth was only 22”. You can do this same thing or put where you ponder will benefit you most.

  • Measure and cut 44’s for bottom supports (length should be the depth of your spotter arms/crossmembers. For me it was 22”.).

  • Mark holes where you prefer handles to be if you wish to include them.
  • Screw remaining pipes (8”/10” mine were 10”) into the top of T (these are your weight sleeves) and tighten with a pipe wrench.

    A 1” dowel rod will fit extremely snug and move extremely little. If you desire to use pipe for handles, drill every the way through with 1 ¼” spade bit).

  • Lay out bottom supports and put top supports on top of them. Space them out evenly (I just took 22/3 and that’s where I put the centers).
  • *Optional*  If you own padding you desire to add, glue/staple/screw on top.
  • Place plywood on top of supports and drill down.
  • 2 – 18”” ( I had to use 24” because of the width of my rack)
  • 2 T’s
  • Screw together (I pre-drilled holes because I was using 24 for my top supports).
  • Screw 24” drop-down pipe into the bottom of the T and screw the other finish into the bottom of the remaining T.
  • Measure and cut 3 44 pieces for top supports (should be the width of your rack + 4”.

    Mine were 48”).

  • Measure and cut plywood top.
  • 1 24” (this is the shaft from top to bottom)
  • Measure the width of you spotter arms/cross members (outside to exterior edge) and the depth (mine was 45” x 22”). Add 3” so your 44’s are centered on the arms (Roughly 2” of overhang, but this depends on how true the 44 is).
  • 2 8” or 10” (these are your plate sleeves I put 10” on mine)
  • 2 – flanges optional ( I got 2 because with the T, my rotating shaft stuck out past my 44’s)

There ya go! Your extremely own table top, space savin’, cheap, & effective, DIY Reverse Hyper!

Purchase Options

If you don’t desire to build your own reverse hyper, there are a few places to consider if you’d rather purchase.

Pipe Every 3/4 Black Pipe

  1. 2 8” or 10” (these are your plate sleeves I put 10” on mine)
  2. 2 T’s
  3. 1 24” (this is the shaft from top to bottom)

  5. 2 – flanges optional ( I got 2 because with the T, my rotating shaft stuck out past my 44’s)

Rogue Fitness

The Rogue fitness RH-2 reverse hyper machine is arguably the most favorite version available on the market.

While it’s not the most inexpensive option, it comes in well under the Westside Barbell models (except for the Scout model mentioned above).

This specific unit is constructed using 23 11 gauge steel and it has a footprint of 40 x . It sits tall and it offers a 3 thick pad that is considered one of the most durable on the market. Additionally, the Rogue reverse hyper offers two hand holds and the sleeves fit every sizes of bumper or steel plates.

This unit is priced at $, it includes Rogue HG Collars and a Spud Inc. Hyper Strap

Titan Fitness

Titan Fitness has recently released their version of the higher-end Rogue Z Hyper.

This reverse hyper machine is constructed with 33 11 gauge steel and it has a footprint of 41 x x . The piece comes with two 6 handles that adjust to eight diverse positions in 2 increments. It also comes with a strap as well as two spring collars.

Diy garage gym ideas

The padding on this Titan unit is also thick, but it’s not as high quality as the Rogue unit.

It’s priced at $ as of the time of this article, although it frequently goes on sale and it is shipped free.

Conclusion

I again desire to thank Nate for sharing these plans with the community.

Definitely give these a glance if you’re considering a DIY reverse hyper that is cheap and space friendly!

If you are looking to add space to your home without extending, then a garage conversion is a grand solution. A garage conversion offers little disruption (until its time to knock through) and makes much better use of often underused space.

You can often increase the sense of space and light in your home with a garage conversion and, when combined with a remodel of your existing ground floor, can convert how you live in your home.

A basic conversion of a single garage costs around £8, and a garage conversion done well can add up to 20% to the worth of your home, according to a report by Nationwide.

In most cases, you will also be capable to convert your garage under your permitted development rights (but do check with your local authority as these may own been removed or restricted).

This beginners guide to garage conversions explains everything you need to know about converting your garage into a usable room, from costs and Building Regulations through to effective heating and plumbing choices for the new space.

If you are looking for practical uses for your new space, check out these grand garage conversion ideas.
