As I’ve said repeatedly in the book, despite the rapid progress of both science and technology, there has yet to be developed a stimulus better than simply grabbing-aholt of something heavy and moving it. I collaborated on making some ‘engineer bags’ for some friends for Christmas, and along with hearing of a few readers’ custom-built (or DIY if you prefer) resistance training apparatuses (hippopotamuses, hippopotamai?) I decided I would like to see more.
So we’re running a contest. Winners receive an autographed copy of Brain Over Brawn, postage paid. The criteria are fairly straight-forward:
- authentic equipment one actually uses will receive priority over comedy responses
- action photos of equipment in use is preferable to just pictures of equipment (like mine, woops)
- please pre-blur or edit any photos prior to submission (if you don’t want your face on the internet, blur it out)
- I’ll reply to whatever emails have sent winning pictures, and receive the shipping information from same (this information will only be used for fulfillment)
I’m looking forward to seeing your own innovative homebrew workout gear. Good luck.
