My name is Patrick M. Tracy. I’ve been lifting weights for about 22 years, and it’s a lifelong passion for me. I’ve tried powerlifting, bodybuilding routines, and strongman stuff along the way. I’m an enthusiastic amateur, not trying to sell anything, but I have picked up some knowledge from all those years of sweat and blood. I hope to convey this knowledge to anyone who happens by.
The primary thrust of this site will be to help people build inexpensive, fun, and effective exercise implements that they can use in the garage, basement, or back yard. I hope this will also prove to be a forum for discussion about anything at all related to exercise or hoisting heavy stuff. I plan to populate it with articles about strength, as well as a variety of my (possibly) crazy ideas and stunts.
