You’ve probably seen this item at your gym and wondered what on earth this torture device is used for. These bars, in fact, are not actually a waste of time — they’re great for higher-level bodyweight training.
They make dips, push-ups, and L-seats a lot more difficult as you’re supporting your weight on the off-the-ground bars. So they may look a little funky, but they’re worth it.
Abs have to be the number one body part that people are trying to tone. Kneel on the Ab Circle and hold onto the handles, and off you go! Basically, it’s a platform that rotates and reportedly is a “treadmill for your abs.”
It also trims your butt, hips, and thighs too, with its special latch that transforms the equipment. It sounds ab-solutely fabulous!
If you’re a child of the 80s, you probably have an exercise video lurking around somewhere with Jane Fonda’s face on it. The Fonda-fad moved through to the 90s and saw some very colorful leotards.
Bounce, kick and sidestep all on that little platform. Seems a bit crazy, but it was definitely a workout!
To be honest, this kind of looks like a piece of couture from Louis Vuitton or something, right?! Anyway, these inflatable shorts were sold as a cure for back pain, and also for losing weight.
The ad suggested that they’re great for "shedding body moisture." Even better still, it also massages you and comes in a one-size-fits-all. Would you try them on?
Electric or Magnetic Corset
This is an older invention aimed at ridding the user of unwanted calories. It was also marketed as a blanket cure for paralysis, indigestion, and rheumatism, as well as you know, giving women the fashionable tiny waists they wanted.
Seems suspicious to us, especially with all those magnets arranging to form a “battery.” Hmm…
