fluffy2097: Oh man, that back roller thing looks amazing. I bet it would feel awesome right up to the point my hair got caught in it.



I don't think you're supposed to do it in the nude.

machoprogrammer: There is no such thing as muscle tone


Odd that it's used to diagnose many illnesses.

But no no, carry on, you're a big bad programmer.

xanadian: FTFA: This useless rubber tube is called the ViPR. Their site claims you can do...9,000 exercises with it. NINE THOUSAND.


This has 82 functions...83 if you count lighting a cigarette.

Nogale: Too Pretty For Prison: steamingpile: BraveNewCheneyWorld: The only exercise equipment you need is a barbell, weights, a power rack and a bench. These few things, when used properly, are more effective than everything else.

What I laugh at is that people feel the need to buy expensive equipment or programs, its amazing in this day and age they cant just Google exercises on the inter webs.
Also people that say they didn't have the right equipment to remain in shape while never realizing they have a floor and arms to accomplish that feat.

it's all in the brain. I won't mention names, but someone that looks exactly like my wife decided she would start running to lose weight. She bought a high-tech water bottle, ungodly expensive running shoes, special bra, running outfit, pulse meter thingy, pedometer....and ran exactly ONE time. Now there's a new gym opening in the same building as her office. She joined for $180 per month. Nevermind the Y costs like a third of that. This past week was her first week. She didn't make it yet, but she did get up early enough one day and realized it was raining and traffic is really bad when it rains so she thought she bette. wait it out otherwise she'd be in traffic all morning, blah, blah, blah. We also have a bicycle that has never been riden (but my oldest daughter has dibs on it when she's old enough to reach the peddals). We have a treadmill that my son likes to play beyblades on. And we have a stationary bike that I never put together because I've learned my lesson. It's all in the brain.

Anyone who loads up on running equipment before sticking with it for a couple of months is a chump. Almost everyone already owns a pair of running shoes and some form of workout clothes, and those will take you through the first few weeks. After that, get a professional shoe fitting. Anything else can be acquired if and when needed.


Chump? Yes. the industry depends on chumps - just like gyms depend on chumps signing up and never coming. According to ABC News 60% of memberships go unused. If you google around that number goes as high as 80%. That's my point. People think if they buy this equipment or join they gym they'll use it. They most likely won't. After she bought the stationary bike 2 years ago and finally realized I didn't assemble it for her about 6 months ago I was able to convince her to stop buying equipment that won't get used. By the way, I told my wife you called her a chump. She's coming over to kick your ass. But don't worry - she said she's going to run over, so I doubt you'll ever actually see her - it's raining. LOL

Soloflex is awesome. Try benchpressing to exhaustion with freeweights alone and then get back to me if you can ever lift the bar off your throat.
