Am I MacGyver Or Uncle Scrooge?
When I posted the video about my improvised dip belt, someone said I’m the “MacGyver of weightlifting.” That gave me a good chuckle, but all I’m doing is trying to find the most effective solution for the least amount of money.
Or maybe it’s just the “Mac” part that’s right and I’m as cheap as common stereotype depicts Scots.

Where To Buy These Gloves
Don’t get the textile gardening variety – it should be gloves made from split leather! They’re available at just about any home improvement store and even Wal-Mart. If you’re too plain lazy to leave the house or live where the mail is still delivered by horse, Amazon naturally carries them as well.
If you’re in Europe, check for Aldi’s or Lidl’s home improvement / DIY specials coming up in the next weeks. That’s where I got mine – two pairs for €4.
