It's not a barbell.

It's a weapon from Krull

Men's Fitness commented that it would make a 'nice ornament'.

WTF would you do with it? It looks like a f-ing key chain!

Q. Are the Burn Machine® models affordable?
A. Yes. Prices start from less than $200, up to $4,000 for custom-made models. Check out the benefits and prices of each Burn Machine® System product.

I'm emailing them now to find out about their custom options, I really want to know how you get a $4000 pseudo barbell.

For that money I could have a complete Eleiko comp set

or 1/4 of those cool ROM machines

That Drew Brees workout was in sports illustrated last year. They did a feature each month about a different player's workout. I kept waiting for something with snatches and jerks but it never appeared. Plenty of yoga and other crazy stuff with guys who probably bench over 500 lbs. Pretty silly.

Like falling out of a window!....except for the whole not getting injured part. Is it just me, or was this guy at the trainer's seminar in San Diego last year? Didn't one of the P-Menu peeps get a pic of me busting a "most muscular" pose in front of him while we all tried not to laugh?
I still have that on my camera...bad ass! We pissed those guys off pretty good...I felt kinda bad but they were doing freaking curls on that thing! I need to send the photo to someone who can download it to their computer/online photo gallery...Like Ive said elsewhere I'm a luddite and have not figured out how to do all that crap.

That stupid TRX system pisses me off. I had asked several to get rings at the gym I used to work at, everytime denied. My manager approached me and tells me they're getting a new piece of "functional" equipment that I'd like. The TRX shows up, and I wanted to punch my manager in the face. Thank god I'm not working there anymore.

Direct from the TRX website itself

"Now available to civilian sports and fitness markets, this intense 3-month training regimen is truly one-of-a-kind. The guide presents an integrated program of functional strength and cardio vascular training that begins at a modestly demanding level and progresses aggressively across 12-weeks.

Fans of Crossfit, GymJones and other intense performance training programs hang onto your hats! You'll love what you find here.

Developed specifically to prepare Navy SEAL recruits for the demanding BUD/S selection and training course, this progressive program will get you into the best shape of your life and increase performance in every sport.

The 30-page ruggedized format is built to withstand the demands of military deployments in adverse environments, and to fully support the training needs of elite athletes in uniform and out."

Mod, I saw a late night infomercial for P90X a while ago; I was going to watch Conan Obrien, but 30 seconds into it I realized i didnt need to change the channel.
