What do you guys use? This has been brought to my attention because I've read that some guys use whatever they can find for weight ie, watergallons, fans, etc.

5lb hand weights that are shaped in a "D" size then I velcro wrap them together so I can change it easily.

Ankle weights that you can put in and take out sandbags. Totalling 10lbs in all.

What's the most you've heard of anyone hanging ? I keep thinking of the guys in Taiwan who compete by pulling cars and buses with their penises.

BOWLING balls???

Same here, 45 lbs. The ankle weights work good, though I now use a regular 5lb circular weight and 1 ankle weight (with 4lbs worth of sand bags in it).

The only bad thing about the circular weight is that it hangs lower, so I have to sit on my desk and put my feet up in my chair.

I made a hanging spindle or post to put my weights on. Made from a 1 inch diameter piece of aluminum 6 1/2 inches long. I drilled and tapped a 1/4 inch hole on one end and attached a 2inch washer with a screw. The weight rests on this washer. On the other end a drilled and tapped a 1/8 inch hole to receive a 1/8 inch eye bolt. The hanger attaches to the eye bolt. I can stack regular weights very easily on this spindle. It would probably hold 100 pounds. I could never imagine hanging that much weight so I should be fine with this.

It's good to use real weights to enable gauge the weight you are hanging with
