Exercise Machines / Equipments

Alright, time to fess up Internet.

I know we’re not the only household with this silly thing in it.

Ab Roller - The Greatest Thing Ever Invented

Yup. Thats right, the Ab Roller.

I’m not even sure if that is the original Ab Roller, nor how much it actually cost. It’s been sitting in the corner, gathering up dust for a long, long time. I think my family used it a total of five times. 10 years ago.

Searching around the house reveals even more wasteful exercise equipments.

$100+ and it's not even powered?

Here’s another expensive one that’s hardly used. I’m not sure how long the treadmill has been in my house. The last time I used it, I was putting a dog on it to see if the dog can run on it without falling off. That was also 10 years ago.

The thing about exercise machine is that they’re generally pretty expensive. These wouldn’t really be such a waste if we had use them more, but unfortunately we didn’t. *Looks down at his gut*

Speaking of expensive, here’s a $15,000 one. I can’t even figure out how you get on that thing. Thanks to Ian Ybarra for the link.

So finally, here’s the latest edition of exercise equipment in my house. An EverLast Freestanding “Heavy” Bag.

I use to go at it frequently, whenever someone ticks me off. What I’ll do is stalk them and take their picture. I then print the pictures out, tape it onto the punch bag, and swing away like a madman.

Just kidding.

The heavy bag was a birthday gift from a few years back. A pretty neat gift that I actually like – it’s a great work out, its fairly durable, and best of all, it’s free.

But the last time I used the punch bag was also 10 years ago.
