Homemade Prowler

If you have been following Strength and Conditioning for a while you know that Elitefts Prowler is one of the most brutal pieces of cardio equipment that you can buy. The problem, as with most top-of-the-line equipment, is the cost.

Now if you have some time to sit down and think what piece of equipment you want you can usually make or have someone make it for you. Just check out the posts at of some smart guys who didn't let $$$ get in the way of having kick-ass equipment.

I was sitting around and out of nowhere I decided I want a Homemade Prowler. I started searching around and came up with some good ideas of what some other guys had been doing. Although I liked some of their designs, I didn't think they would work for me. I finally found some pics and made a drawing with some dimensions I thought could work. Next, I had to find someone who could pull it off.

So as a public school teacher/coach I have the uncanny ability to try and find stuff the cheapest way possible. If only everyone had it. So who in the hell could I pay to get the Operation Homemade Prowler done??


None other than the Highschool welding teacher! He did an awesome job on it and had it done in about a week. I could have him make me probably 6-7 of these bad boys before it gets close to the price of having an Elitefts Prowler. With the Elitefts Model you get what you pay for.

Next time you are thinking you want a certain piece of equipment don't be scared to ask those around you and let them have fun with it. Finding someone to do the work should be the least of your problems if you determined. There is a person who wants to do it. What do you have to lose? If you get one of the above probably your lunch.

Next you might ask is how the Homemade Prowler has held up. Tough Mutha. It's working great and is easy to transport in the back of my truck. Check out my brother tearin' up the streets with it.
