I’m from Manila in the Philippines and I really wanna give youa tour of my home-gym.Its in two parts, one is a balcony gym that’s just right out of that door and the other one is going downstairs to see the garage gym, so. Like a lot of places, Manila is under quarantine so what you gotta remember is gyms are gonna be closedtil around September. So, I’ve thought about construct or groups together my own home-gym for some time now andbecause I do open gym at the CrossFit box that I go to and its commonly precisely kinda me alone in like quirky hours of the afternoon it sorta established gumption to movethat training over to the home, and started with a little bit of equipment that I started gettingfrom local suppliers before the pandemic startedto really, certainly scale up. And then time the bulk of it, like slabs and saloons I went last week so, actually all into the garage-gym lifestyle.So, we’re gonna head over to part one the balcony to check it out. So as you can see nothing super fancy its maybe five and ahalf by like twelve paws so not a lot of space, these are my sons old Disney play-mats from back in the working day. No schedules of putting in some thicker rubber matting for now. But I guess that should do with what I try to do here, so. You know the balcony-gym is used for kinda a lot of mat contact work so anything with a likesix, ten, twelve minutes even to longer ones whereI can exactly use kinda dumbbells, kettle-bellsand everything else. You know, the boobs are from PlayHard the remedy ball is from PlayHard plyo box is from PlayHard that kettle-bell is from PlayHard.So, I got a lot of stuff from PlayHard. They’re a highly, verypopular regional supplier ya know over here, ourPM and lasso prance lines,( mumbling) and then the uh the gymnastics echoes. Which I came last week fromjust a local online shop and then these grills kinda suffice uh kinda as a rig for pull-ups, so can’t really do anything else outside except pull-ups right now. The objective is to, just whereI’m pointing right now to get a extremely very nice pull-up bar there maybe twenty-four inches deep just enough to get toes to prohibit and a little of kipping pull-ups in and then maybe if you go down now maybe a little cute pegboard. But everything here is just kinda meant to precisely do quick workouts so this place has assured a lot of burpees, lots of double-unders lots of box climbs, a lot of sways. Ever since the quarantine in the Philippines started. And again as I said earlier, I started get the heavier paraphernalium like layers and barbells which we’re gonna verify downstairs when we go right down there.Okay so we came all the way up from there and now we’re here, so, welcome to my garage-gym. So we’re moving three storeys down, trying to draw most out of the seat so part 1 of every workout is taking the car out of the garage. So you can still seethe familiar Disney rugs from upstairs, this timeabout a two one inch high-pitched density rubber mattings on the two sides. So hopefully there’s a lot less sound there still is from like the collars or the sleeves hitting the metal collars of the plates, but it is what it is can’t really be removed from it.( metal tinkle) So this rail is from a littlecompany called Strong Fit, pretty sure they imported from China, but you know good spendgood enough for the expenditure we got some plates fromStrong Fit also as well, five kilos those extraone pound increments on each dish facilitate whenyou try to go for P.R.’s.Here’s fifteens and these are twenty-fives on the bar and those are forty-fives from PlayHard, I got a lot at PlayHard and Jax Chua, they are the leading outfitter for all of the gyms andboxes in the Philippines and they’ve cured me a good deal inputting this stuff together. Even the stuff fromupstairs if you recollect is all from you know PlayHard, so … There was never any are projected to prepare kinda this thepermanent garage-gym space I gotta park the carevery night so everything needs to be stored on theside or somewhere else so for future hopes I’mgonna get a rack now a foldable rack like a PRx style one that folds up or a Roguestyle one that either bends inside or folds to one side so … These guys ship to the Philippines but it’ll cost you know, two appendages ten legs for me to get to do so. So we’ll probably hook up with a neighbourhood firm to try to see if they can do something similar, and the ceiling is good enough for maybe squeezing me in for a muscle up if we get that stuff in place.So if we can’t get the rig it’ll be, you know movable, separate squat stands and then a regular pull-up bar up top. A good twenty metre driveway I went like sprints and everything else in, that’s my other auto I hadto get out of the way. This white piece of the ceiling here or the ceiling there is wherewe thumped our wall chunks. It’s I make exactly a little bit shorter than ten feet but you know, good enough. I exactly did Karen a few weeks ago so it really cured out. So there ya go this is the garage-gym, gym part 2 so hopefully you’ve enjoyed kinda this little space I generated for myself definitely a lot moregyms out there in Manila that have very very muchmore outfitted than mine you are familiar with glances channel better, have a more dedicated held infinite, but ya know, everybody’s gottamake use of what they have and this is what I did with mine, so.This again is Toby from Manila, abide safe remain healthful, thank you Garage Gym Life Media for having me here andI am signing off, enjoy.( click, buzzer hoop)( closing jingle-jangle ).
