Bored with your regular weights? Try lifting dwarves.

Gym in London has ‘human’ weights.

Members of Gymbox in Bank, central London, can choose to lift any of five differently sized “human weights”.

Wearing Lycra catsuits which label their weight, they sit on specially adapted machines and shout words of encouragement.

The “dumbbells” include two dwarfs รขโ‚ฌโ€œ 32-year-old Arti Shah, who weighs just 4.5 stones (30kg) and 64-year-old Mike Edwards, who weighs 8 stones (55kg).

At the other end of the scale for those with stronger muscles is 24 stones (155kg) Matt Barnard, 37.

Gymbox owner Richard Hilton said: “A lot of our members felt that lifting metal weights was boring and not especially motivating.

    Thanks for changing your handle, Mike… I’m sad to find out that I’m not part of “the whole group”, though. hahaha

    The video was SWEET! I like that our gym banner was prominently displayed. You can’t pay for PR like that… and we’ve got Kalipa’s ass print! I wonder if we might excise it from the drywall, and auction it up on eBay. It might pay for another GHD or rower.

    By the way, I’m amazed by Jazz, Stav, Holly!!, and whoever else was able to workout on Sunday after the Saturday competition. I am still frikkin’ sore!

    I actually felt great this weekend. I want to fight the urge to do a WOD to today. 3 on 1 off is working really well so far. Surprised that the deadlifts didn’t make me more sore that I was. A little tightness, but nothing a long hot shower and some stratching could take care of.
