My name is David Otey, and I am the inventor of the Loadable Dumbbell Cushion (L.D.C.).
To keep it short, I am an advisor for Men's Health Magazine and a 15-year Personal Trainer. Even more than that, I have been lifting weights since I was 13 years old.
Growing up, building a jaw-dropping physique was what I always wanted. I was raised looking up to the old-school bodybuilders of Venice Beach, which meant moving some serious iron to get arms that would stop Arnold in his tracks (if I have to explain who Arnold is, we haven't lived on the same planet).
With all those aspirations, I didn't grow up with a lot of money and started working as young as I possibly could to collect a paycheck. I worked and worked and worked and saved up my 8th-grade graduation money to buy a Bench Press, Preacher Curl, and 300 lb weight set to lift to Till I Collapse by Eminem four nights a week.
For that year's Christmas, I received Loadable Olympic Dumbbells, which was a game-changer - or so I thought. I quickly learned that using Loadable Olympic Dumbbells was PAINFUL. I don't mean uncomfortable either. I mean a legitimate form of torture.
This was close to 20 years ago, and until now, there was never a solution.
I created the Loadable Dumbbell Cushion to provide a safe, effective, and AFFORDABLE option for lifters everywhere. The increased cushion and wide base of support provide a stable and comfortable experience for using what dumbbells were meant for, LIFTING.
The fact this issue has lasted as long as it has is a disservice to fitness enthusiasts everywhere.
This clean design and snug fit leave you with a simple and effective answer to a time-tested problem. The weight of the cushion is 2 oz which means there is no effect whatsoever on your lifting experience.
So grab those Dumbbells that have been getting less use than they deserve and put them back in service with the new Loadable Dumbbell Cushion from AbMat!
