CD Dumbbell Concept: Build Some Muscle with Your Old Compact Discs

Remember all of those AOL CDs that you used to get in the mail? What about all of those music CDs that are now obsolete? You probably have them sitting in a closet somewhere collecting dust. Well, it’s time to dust them off and turn those old CDs into muscles.


This concept is designed by Seung-il Kim and is all about recycling (and fitness.) This dumbbell concept turns discs into weights within a dumbbell. Your old CDs and DVDs are here to pump you up, girly man. Discs are perfect because they are thin and light, but together a bunch of them can really weigh a lot.

The average CD weighs about .15 grams, so the weight adds up nicely and you can make the dumbbell weigh whatever weight you want. Sadly, it’s just a concept right now, but hopefully these become a reality. It would be nice to use those CDs for something besides drink coasters.
