That’s Not How to Use a Dumbbell

“Yanno, I really owe you an apology here, because when you said you were buying me athletic equipment and putting me on an exercise regimen, I thought it was going to be a lot of hard work, but this is easy! This chin-up bar is so low to the ground, I’ve been doing reps all morning! Why didn’t anybody tell me this sooner?”

    Can I hire her as my trainer?

    Yes, this is about my level of exercise as well.

    The best use I have ever seen for one of these.

      That’s exactly how I use mine too – how else am I going to hold my head up while I’m watching TV and eating Funyuns? 😀

    Stationary bikes are also great exercise equipment and they make very good clothes racks after the first 2 weeks

      I can vouch for the fact that a stationary bike makes a great parrot stand, too.

      I agree! At least the cat hasn’t hung any clothes or cat toys on the bar yet!

      That is very true.

    Well, Macau did have to actually walk to the weight, you know, maybe even several feet! A workout like that can really take it out of you!

    Macey’s working smarter not harder, combining the low chin-up with the classic Just Lie There(tm) exercise.
