New Hanging Method - Bungy Strap
On another PE website a poster mentioned using surgical tubing or bungie cord tied to a secure object and then to the Bib as a means of stretching without using weights. The idea really caught my attention because with the Bib and attached weight I was just never able to consistently get the tug I wanted without problems. Sometimes it worked like a charm, but just as many times I got pissed.
Tonight I took one of those bungie cord straps (the kind with hooks on both ends used to secure items) and wrapped it around the base of my chair, then hooked it to the Bib, and bam! Got it. Great thing is that I can really adjust the tension by wrapping the cord around the chair base a few times.
The chair I sit in at the computer has four rollers. Think of an intersection of two line with rollers on each end of the lines. At the intersection of the lines a shaft extends up and is attached to the bottom of the seat. The base for the rollers actually extend a couple inches past the seat. I wrapped the bongy cord around the end of the the base, positioned that wheel between my legs, attached it to the Bib for a BTC pull. Next I rotated the base so that the cord was to my right, attached the Bib, attacking that angle. I did the same to the left side. OTS is possible as well if you put some padding on the shoulder.
For those who have had the same problems with weight hanging as I have, this may be a simple alternative. Great thing about these cords is that they have hooks on both ends.
