Time to Get Moving!


Turn-of-the-Century Turned Wooden Dumbbells (LEO Design)


My gym membership has been re-instated today—after months of mandated closures, suspensions, more closures and freezes. But the inevitable has finally arrived: I gotta get moving! Gratefully, I did not contract the real coronavirus.  But, alas, in my own sad way, I had a brush with the other Covid Nineteen (or was moving in that general direction)—and now I want to drop those pounds.

By today's standards, these wooden dumbbells don't make the grade.  They only weigh a couple of pounds each, if that, and were probably used originally to augment calisthenics—not for serious weight resistance exercise. But they are heavy with character. And they're a good reminder that it's time to get moving! Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
