I wished my gym would get new dumbells!

I grabbed the 115's this morning to do incline dumbell presses and the damn things are sharp on the ends. It leaves these crop circle looking cuts on my thighs.



I guess I'll grab a couple of towels from now on to tuck into my shorts to cover the front of my legs....

Let me guess, you got the iron ones that you can take apart?

Rub some dirt on it and jog it off!

On a side note, the damn things are expensive as hell.

They are the plate style with the allen head bolts on the ends. The bad thing is that guys that think they are bigger than they are have to drop them because they are too heavy to do a complete rep to begin with....

So, because of all the dropping, it has beaten the ends to where they are pretty sharp.

Yea, those iron ones just plain suck. We've got those rubber coated Iron Grip ones up here at my gym and the rubber coating really keeps the idiots from tearing them up. I was going to buy a few of them to have at home but the prices will make you cringe.

ask the gym if they'll let you stick moleskin over the centers or try asking someone to hand them to you so you don't have to kick them up

my regards

When I'm at the gym it's about 6:30 a.m. and there aren't many people there at the time that can handle anything over 100 lbs. Scary thought, I'm actually one of the younger people there at that time......
