When you have something rolling in from the house of Yanko Design, you can expect the unconventional, something a little more artsy and design centric. That’s what these cool O2 Magnetic Dumbells bring to stage. Comprised of four bracelets, the kit requires you to wear one above each elbow and the other below each elbow. The repulsion between the like poles of the magnets is what sets the force to work, rather than weights. The repelling force can accordingly be adjusted with the help of a small dial on them. Injuries, shortcomings of magnets and distributed weight do cause some concerns for the fitness fanatics among us but then, there’s always something new to try out that shouldn’t matter much to the unreserved.
On the up side, this contraption could completely introduce a world of convenience to the fitness conscious. Rather than carrying those cumbersome, heavy dumbells around, these cool ones not only are portable but also have a style agenda hidden in their simplistic design.
