Bummed around T.J.Maxx yesterday and came away with a true Master Competitor gem - the Everlast Door Gym for a screaming low price of $12.99.
Now there's no excuses for being ripped and ready when I do that obligatory shirt change after each ultrarun and bike ride.
Pretty basis stuff: Elastic resistance cords hooked to any standard door. Only trouble is that when installed on my doors, the doors won't close. Have to brace door with one foot while doing reps. Other hassle is that to get the full range of exercises, one has to flip the brackets from two on top, one on bottom, to the reverse one on top, two on bottom. There's also a resistance adjuster that allows for increased tension.
Hooked it up in about five minutes and now it's time to get to work. A few hundred reps a day can turn weight resistance into an endurance sport. The Everlast Door Gym should add to my overall 2012 resolution of converting convert master man to super man in the next 60 days.
