How to Make DIY Dumbbells from Concrete!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today I went to Big5 and Sports Authority to buy some dumbells.  Sadly, they didn’t even have the 60 pound dumbbells I wanted plus you had to special order them.

Nevermind the ridiculous price of “one” dumbell (which was like $100), so I looked online for some answers on how to make your own DIY dumbells.  There’s a guy on YouTube who says you can make them out of milk jugs or laundry detergent containers but the only culprit is that you can only get them to go about 35 pounds

Paramotor Eris 4 Powered Paraglider!

There’s a spot here in San Francisco near the border of Daly City and SF that you can watch many paragliding and hang gliding, it’s probably one of the most popular spots for that around here. In fact, one time I saw this paraglider who fell into a tree on the highway.

Anyways, I didn’t know there’s a “powered” paraglider, this stuff is insane! Watch the end of the video where the guy literally surfs the lake.

This is the future of search and rescue.

I’ve found out more information, these things can take you up to 15,000 feet

Simply punching a punching bag for hours on the end probably won’t get you better at boxing or any other martial arts.  But here’s an incredible DIY punching bag training device that teaches you to punch at different point.  It’s very similar to pointing a laser for your cat to chase but believe me, as a black belt in Tae Kwon Do myself, I can appreciate such a great training device.

I just wonder if companies will get ideas from this and make some better punching bags.

Street Hang Glider!

street-hang-glider

You know I see a ton of people here in San Francisco who hang glide on a daily basis and some day I plan to make it my hobby too but for those of you who are afraid of all the risks of flying, there’s Street Hang Glider called StreetFlyer. I think it’s a pretty neat concept for those of you afraid of heights and it can even help real hang gliders train the same muscles used in air.
