I was doing my cardio at the gym today and saw an infomercial for the following: http://www.getkbells.com/product/slimandtone.do . I almost fell off the treadmill laughing at the 30 minute infomercial. People were basically dancing all over this set swinging k-bells all overthe place. For those of you looking for some variety in your workout routine, you really need to learn how to do a cartwheel swinging kettlebell. Yup, it is on the DVD. They even had a special offer where they were throwing in "wrist wraps" that look like grandma's knee brace; they were advertised as "making your workout safer and more comfortable".

Kettlebells are so yesterday. The bender ball is where it's really at. My abs are sculpted now, haha. I agree all the fitness informercial stuff is stupid. People buy that crap then never use it. Just look on craigslist or ebay for used fitness stuff.

When nothing else is on TV late at night I frequently find myself watching fitness infomercials.
I especially enjoy the ones for ab machines that will "cut inches off your waistline."

No way nothing tops guys who get
a) A bigger chest
b) bigger arms
c) bigger legs
d) a tan
All from working out on an ab machine.
