Jeez, Bane, I'm surprised you could stand close enough to that 1lb weight to take that photo. Do you have no regard for your own safety?
Thankfully a local department store is up on safety measures. They realize that while offering heavy dumbbells is good for the health and fitness of its customers, they have a responsibility to inform us of the dangers of handling such goods. Especially having such heavy weights up on a 3 foot table - pretty dangerous stuff.
In case you were wondering, these 2 dumbbells are the only ones on the table. The rest of the display is jumping ropes, stretch bands, yoga mats, and the like.
Thanks for keeping us safe, guys!
Do they have the same signs posted next to the large bottles of soda pop?
Somebody can actually pick those up? I would like to shake this Hercules' hand.
Speaking of weight safety my schools weight room doesn't allow head phones in the weightroom because weights can fall and hurt people; how those two things have any connection is apparently beyond my limited weight room experience. Another Weight Fail
My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.
I'm not allowed to take off my shoes for my deadlifts because the weights could fall and I could hurt myself. When I asked how that could conceivably actually happen, that the weight could fall off the end of the bar and onto my toe in the middle of a deadlift, I was met with a silent, blank grin.
I'm glad you had the good sense not to mess with those dumbbells, Bane. Life in the Great White North sounds mighty dangerous!
so, if someone were to buy those dumbells, do you think the associate assigned to bag them up for you would be required to wear a weight lifting belt?
The pic is only half loading for me, what does the sign say?
Maybe the weights are holding the table down - if you take them off it'll fly up and hit you in the face.
