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.
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!
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.
The Power Balance proclaims to help you improve your balance and strength through…well, “hologram frequencies.” It’s no surprise then that these bracelets really don’t do anything.
Maybe Princess Leia can tell us how the hologram frequencies work? We think it's best to keep bracelets as accessories and not as exercise equipment.
This invention looks a little futuristic, actually — and amazingly, it’s not motor-powered! It in fact relies on science to keep it going — specifically gravity, to speed you up or to slow you down. Shaped like the popular treadmill, both ends are elevated, making it look like a banana.
The whole idea behind this is; the further forward you step, the faster you go. Proceed with caution — the lack of handles means you are definitely more accident-prone here.
