    home jungle gym - must haves?

    i recently got permission to build a home jungle gym in my back yard. so i want to know what sorts of things i should put on it. current ideas:

    rings
    pull-up bar
    monkey bars (on an incline, maybe?)
    climbing rope
    hooks to attach fighting rope to
    i thought of putting a ninja warrior-esque 'salmon ladder' on
    a box to keep sandbags, kettlebells, slosh tubes, etc. inside
    peg wall
    climbing wall (maybe just plywood with little finger holds made from 2x4 on it)
    plyo boxes
    tractor tire w/sledge

    ...any other ideas/advice on how to build something like this? has anybody ever build something similar?

    You're gonna love this... it's an album from a user (not me) at another fitness site I frequent. Have a look. You might have to register to view the pics, but the site is free...

    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

    YES! that's what i'm looking for! thank you so much!

    i want mine to be very similar, but in a 'ring' (of course, the ring will be square, but it will circle and empty center where i want my rope/rings to hang down). this has a lot of good ideas and is something to show to my dad (i'd be building it as his house) to let him know it can be pretty ascetically pleasing, as well.

    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    String a rope to balance on. Good pic of Mark and son in 21-day Transformation.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
