I read quite a few health and fitness blogs out there on the ol' interwebs (and will get a blogroll going eventually) and one I (and seemingly everyone else out there) love is MizFit. Well, her Friday Link Love post linked to a crafty little project I just had to try:
I figured, "Hey, I have 2384703874 CDs lying around for some future art project thanks to years of collecting free AOL CDs and saving CDs that failed to burn for me, so why not?"
The following are the result:
The finished project. Obviously I had a lot of left over threaded rod.
What it will look like when I get a hold of a metal saw and chop off the extra rod.
Brandon lifting the dumb/barbell.
I'm not sure how heavy the dumbbell actually is since the scale in the house is a broken piece of crap. I also want to take some fabric or foam and tape it on to where you'd actually grasp the bar as that threaded rod? Kinda hurts.
Given that I have some dumbbells lying around as well as a gym membership, I think I'm going to give this to my friend Gen as a Christmas gift since she's been trying to find a good way to work out at home.
