Stupid Fitness Fads, Part 494

Saturday, May 1, 2010
Posted in category Fitness

People know how I love stupid exercise gimmicks made for the lazy masses. Here’s another horrifying “fitness” tool that is probably bringing in handsome profits. Instead of lifting iron, you can just stand there, for 6 minutes a day, and hold a dumbbell that “shakes.” Brutal workout! Listen to the part where the commercial describes how much more effective this thing is as opposed to “traditional” dumbbells.

    Sorry, that’s worth a giggle or two. I wonder if the overt sexual innuendo is missed.

    It’s not. Do a search for “SNL Parody of Shake Weight”. Hilarious!

    Nope, it was intentional. A real sales “booster”.

    Honestly, could you have dreamed this up???

    More stoopid MSU…

    Love it where you can get it in DVD packages w/ the title “Saw #5″ so your wife can’t find it (LOL!!!).

    Pink tank top girl was the abs bomb!

    And this one really kicked some major A:

    Please don’t ban Iluvatar – those links were priceless. I think I hucked the other lung. Besides, Karen started it by posting this video.

    Methinks that Mrs Smith would have done well to have this weight. Six minutes of that would have prevented 13 kids.
    GM: So, Mrs. Smith, do you have any children?
    MS: Yes, thirteen.
    GM: Thirteen! Good lord, isn’t that a burden?
    MS: Well, I love my husband.
    GM: Lady, I love my cigar but I take it out of my mouth once in a while.

    Nope wait a sec: Karen was to blame for all of this – it is HER fault!!!!! -OR-

    @ ALL: “AA” was the dude to blame – NOT ME!

    I rarely make stuff up; I just steal it (snicker, snicker) ><

    @ M Terry: Hey is it being a comedian or the Presidency? You keepin' us in suspense or WHAT?

    @JQ: Taking a huge breath of relief here, now that I have (at least until SHE catches up w/ me) avoided her absolute dismissal/and banning of me from this sight, uummmmm; was wondering how do you actually procreate 13 children if your focus is OTHERWISE (I will go no futher on this – except to say that you can get a HECK of a lot a mileage done by satisfying your beloved by getting REALLY busy using other approaches). We Frenchmen do it ALL of the TIME. And -oh- btw (and to keep it non-prurient); we get really motivated this way too!

    Why is that those European women are lookin' so good anyway!!!! (and we are talking about BABES who are in their 60's!!!!)?

    B/c they are working out with their beloveds!!!

    Duh, makes sense; n'est-ce pas?

    Hah-hah! Got something off that passes the PC Police on this one!! Can't catch me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Agree with you MT that Iluvatar should definitely not be banned. It’s good to LYAO before going to sleep, for we hear and read so much serious crap all day long, you need a break from it all. I must admit when I first started reading this particular post and watched one of the videos (hilarious), I figured all you guys were still in your YDFC stage…but knowing none of you are teenie boppers anymore, I figured the videos Iluvatar graciously :) offered, got all of you guys revved up. At any rate, if you don’t know what YDFC is….Young, Dumb, and Full ‘a Cum. Couldn’t pass that one up!

    Yes, Iluvatar, Euro femmes do keep it all together…not really that hard if you are living right. It makes my day that many folks think I am 15 – 25 years younger than my chronological age..even my doctor refuses to believe my real age, so I guess I’ve been doing something right all these years. I think that part of it is good genes, but also living right, having a good attitude about life, setting goals, being interested in many, many things, reading voraciously, doing my art, cooking for my man, lifting those heavy bags of topsoil and manure for my gardens…all that good stuff does keep one lasting longer, and looking good when many others have lost their bloom and given up on life. I never hopped on the libber bandwagon…am just one of those old fashioned gals that believes in that French saying, “Viva la difference”..and that has made all the difference!

    Iluvatar – JQ’s posts are a hell of a lot funnier than mine. She has a way with words. I’ll have to remember YDFC – now that’s FUNNY.

    I guess I’m ODSB. (Old, Dumb and Shootin’ Blanks…
