Can you place this '80s movie quote?
"I feel great! Just ordered some more vitamins and stuff. I was just exercising. I taped a 20-minute workout and played it back at high speed on my machine so it only took 10 minutes. I got a great workout." (Answer below.)
We found the perfect workout tool for this nerd. Yes, you are looking at a picture of a barbell made from used CDs.
Danny Seo, who thought up the project, claims the CD barbell weighs 10 pounds using 75 CDs for each side.
I did my own little experiment to investigate this. According to my scale, a spindle of 100 blank CDs weighs approximately 4 pounds. So, using roughly 100 discs for each end of the homemade barbell would still only give you about 8 pounds to lift. OK, maybe more including the bar you attached.
I guess it's a step up from using soup cans.
