please help thai weights...

Discussion in 'Gear & Equipment Discussion' started by pound 4 pound, May 25, 2008.

  1. Does anybody know where I could get the tai jaw weight setup? You know, when they have the weights on some type of a rope that you bite onto and lift.

    If nobody knows where I can buy that setup do you know how I could make it. It seems like they have some special kind of rope that they are using.

    Thanks

    Nylon? Mine was nothing more than a nylon rope with a stick at the end. Originally I had rolled the rope up and duct taped it, but after I busted a chin strap on a set of ear guards, I decided that I could duct tape the ear guards to the rope... worked out nicely. Looked like crap.

    Thai style tends to be a piece of plastic tubing or rope looped through a weight plate, or it may not be a weight plate, it might just be some concrete.

    Fill a plastic milk jug with water.
    Run a piece of rope through the jug's handle.
    Knot the two ends of the rope together.
    Bite rope.
    Lift head.
    Repeat.

    Its not a setup its just a piece of rope they bite. A head harness does the same job and is probably safer and can handle more weight.
