No, you aren’t hallucinating, these are utensils for eating your meals, with weights attached to them. The 1.5 pound Knife and Fork Lift were made to make each bite…just a little bit more strenuous.
These pieces of cooky cutlery are certainly better suited for a “fun” dinner party than a workout. We’ll stick to plastic sporks instead…thanks!
Another modern torture device here folks — but while it may look a little zany, it’s in fact a pretty tough, tried and true workout.
The Jacob’s Ladder is actually pretty effective in helping you break a sweat — but you may also break an ankle if you’re not careful, and get your leg caught in the moving ladder rungs. Start slow, very slow, and proceed with caution.
Titanium bracelets are actually still being sold as credible pain and fatigue reducers. For many who wear them, they believe they work — but we’re not convinced that they’re more than a placebo.
The celeb-backed bracelets apparently improve “bioelectrical flow” — oh you fancy, huh? Sadly though, research has been done on the properties of the titanium bracelets, with no real findings as yet.
If you've ever wanted to exercise like an astronaut, then this might be your chance! Sure, your average gym likely won't have one of these spacey contraptions but we think it's worth tracking one down to try.
Apparently, the anti-gravity feature takes the load off of your legs, allowing you to run faster. One small step for man... One giant leap for gym equipment!
X-iser Portable Stepper
Always wanted a StairMaster, but never had the room, or the funds? Well, maybe the X-iser portable stepper is for you. It saves on the cost and the space of the equipment that many people swear by for their cardio workouts.
It’s compact, portable, and seems like it might actually work! We’ll have to take this one into the test gym and see if it’s a credible piece of workout equipment.
