Video tour of EliteFTS

If Westside Barbell is the Mecca of powerlifting, then the Elite FTS compound must be the Medina of powerlifting. Or something like that.

Zach Even-Esh took some video during his visit. You can see some strong guys working on getting stronger. It's about 10 minutes long.

At around 6:40, you'll see a great idea for you DIY folks - a role pulldown. A pulldown cable station is neither cheap nor small. But a heavy rope and a pulley isn't that expensive. Get a rafter or I-beam you can drill an eye-ring into, attach the pulley, and you've got a pulldown station. Or a rope-drag station. Or a Rocky IV style ab pulldown station. It's got a lot of possibilities.
