Finally, fill the holes for the screws with wood putty and sandpaper them. The frame is ready! Hooray!
Making a wooden pulley
Moving seatTo begin with, we cut off a plank of 30 by 30 centimeters. After that, we make another 2 wooden panels 30 cm long and 8 cm wide. The first fragment will serve as a seat, and the other two will serve as side parts.Screw the side pieces to the main seat. Now, screw two rows of three wheels each on the inside of the seat and two more wheels on the inside of each side panel. Place them at equal distance from the edges and from each other. Fill the holes of the screws with wooden putty and polish thoroughly with sandpaper. It's time to think about aluminum strips 140 by 4 cm. Screw them onto the upper side of the long horizontal beams of the frame.
We manufacture steps
Install the wheels
WaxingCarefully cover all wooden elements with a layerwax.
Getting to the exercises
Adjustment of resistanceTo adjust the resistance of the simulator to your own physical form, detach the hooks of elastic belts from the rings, and if you want to return the original load, return the hooks to the place. The more resistance, the more calories you burn and the faster your back and muscles begin to ache.If you are used to bring yourself to the point of exhaustion, then exercise with 4 straps attached. This will strengthen your cardiovascular system and increase stamina.
