In retrospect, it was bound to happen as the next step of human evolution. It was as obvious as the idea that one brave soul had to replace cannonballs with midgets, thus creating “human-cannonballs.” So, leave it to the British gym, Gymbox, to usher in a new era of glory for mankind by replacing dumbells with human weights (read about it here).
Now, the British no longer have to work out by lifting cold, uncaring weights; they get to work out by bench-pressing or leg-pressing a couple of midgets in black spandex suits. I submit the following to you for your review:
So, the next time that people want to bash ingenuity and claim that there are no more “fresh” ideas, I hope you’ll join me in sticking your tongue out at them and directing them to the Gymbox human-weight system.
On a side note, I did call Gymbox and ask if they had home-weight systems that you could order. My call has not been returned.
