I built a box.

I built a box and the first thing that my wife said to me is “Well that’s dumb.” The problem is that I don’t 100% disagree with her. Sometimes an idea will grab my attention and I don’t think it all the way through before execution.

The box that I ended up constructing is a 20″ X 24″ X 30″ Pylometric (Pylo) box. These boxes are typically used to do big explosive exercises that are a bit overkill for what I’m trying to accomplish. The intention is to use this for stretching and strengthening my knees. Depending on the orientation of the box you get different heights for various workouts. It seemed like a cheap and easy solution for exercise.

I was excited to build one and so that’s exactly what I did. After doing so I told my wife about it and the conversation went something like this.

“Hey wife I made an exercise box, want to come see?” I said.

“Well why’d you do that?” She responded.

“I don’t know, it seemed like a good way to workout.”

“How big is it?”

“Well you see, it’s bigger than I imagined, it’s huge.” I hemmed and hawed.

She replied with a great amount of hostility, “Where are we going to put that?”

I cannot fault her for that, this thing is massive. And it hurts to admit it but she is right, there is no place to put it.
