    How many times did you remember that you were supposed to work out when you're already in your warm, cozy bed and don't really want to get out of it? I do it every day and by such, this project is pretty great.

    Great idea though do those bungees provide much in the way of resistance, I know most of them look the same but some are stronger than others... This seems like a great space saving way of keeping fit.

    thanks,Yeah there is many types of cords with different resistance and length you should find the ones that match you fitness level, the ones on the instrutable have three bands that can be removed according to your needs

    Aye, just meant that you pretty much just have to test them in store, since they all look the same, the skinny bike rack ones aside.
