I've always used a cheap ab wheel but never really like the quality of it. Then I saw one of Ross' ab wheels of Rosstraining.com and figured I'd make my own so it would also act as a unilateral movement. Anyways I picked all this up at Home Depot:
2 - 8in Hex bolts (1/2in dia)
2 - 1/2in hex nuts
4 - 1/2in hose clamps
4 - 6in lawnmower tires
1 - Roll of duct tape
Total Cost = $32 and change
Inspiration came from this video...
YouTube - The Homemade Wheel - RossTraining.com
This is a great Idea. I mite try these at home.

Those look pretty badass...might have to add them to my collection of homemade equipment...
I have a redneck prowler, a backpack filled with sand, some various medicine ball like devices (basketball and dodge ball filled with sand and wrapped in duct tape), and these awesome tube sandbags with vertical handles...I grab them, shrug, and walk as far as I can with them...I keep meaning to build farmers walk bars and some other stuff...
I was wandering through Walmart one day and saw these cheapo rubber basketballs for like $3...I thought "hell, why not"...turned out pretty good...only downside is it's hard as my **** on 3/4 of a gram of test a week.
that is definitely a great cost-effective idea.......and something I am definitely gonna look into.
You could have bought the original for half that!
that dude better have some abs after all those crazy ass movements
just like crunches though you wouldnt expect this to build muscle for abs unlike heavy squats and deads but my buddy in high school only did these and ended up with a six pack
