daddyPrimate’s return to fitness: A good collar makes things less terrifying.

Heading back into the garage for workout number 3 I was determined not to let another mid-lift disassembly occur and cause the terrifying sound of cast iron hitting the ground to interrupt my daughter’s sleep. It happened twice. TWICE.


So this weekend we made a family trip to the sporting goods store. That’s where I saw them, the clip style collars that hold weights oh so tightly in place. For $5/2pack. HELLO SOLD SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.


Fast forward to this morning. I’m off of work, babyPrimate is down for a nap, and mommyPrimate is out for a job interview. I go back into the garage, clip on my new weight collars…and…THEY WORKED. SO SOLID. OMG. I CAN LIFT WITHOUT FEAR!


Fitness. Now a lot less terrifying.
