Whether you’re only just dipping your toe in the garage gym lifestyle, or you’ve been at it for a while, you probably know that space is a limited resource. Seriously, space in a garage gym is like water in the Australian Outback.
This is one area where my experience as a cannoneer in the United States Marine Corps comes in handy. There’s nothing like having to fit gear for a howitzer, plus personal gear and weapons for twelve Marines into the back of a truck to teach you to maximize space.
But, let’s assume that you don’t have that background and aren’t interested in spending time at Parris Island and Ft. Sill, OK learning to pack your trash. You need an article that will teach you how to use simple tools, some of which are available at Wal-Mart (or Home Depot if you want to be really hardcore). I was all set to write that article for you. Cross my heart and hope to die I was. Then I saw that Mr. Burgeson at garage-gyms.com had already written it for you. So I’ll send you to learn from him. Be sure to drop him a comment and tell him you heard about him at garagegymlife.net.
