Hi Chloe. I would say ANY of the latest fitness equipment that allows for ‘passive’ contraction of the muscles and claims that this will ‘get you in shape’ by simply having the machine contract your muscles for you (hmmm, the contractions no doubt make the innervated muscle LOOK good as it contracts, but in my opinion does little to nothing to actually increase muscular STRENGTH which is one of the indicia of true fitness).
The “Six Pack Abs”…
the one piece of equipment that makes me laugh just thinking about it is the one where you stand on a platform and a rather wide band moves around your butt. I don’t even know what it is called but I saw it once in a gym in the ‘ladies’ workout room’ next to another one that looked like a giant stand-mixer that would move your hips in a circular motion (and probably throwing out your back in the process).
I hope that this piece of exercise miracle is now in the trash.
Thanks for asking the question. Just remembering it made me laugh again.
