You know ShovelGlove did spring to mind. I think we're developing an unbeatable system here:

vIpr
Shake Weight
ShovelGlove
Housework

All we need now is a gin addled idiot savant to provide the guru glue to hold our world together.

Just went back through this:

Quote:
A Virgin Active spokesman said ViPR is the first weight trainer to work out entire groups of muscles at once, rather than each one in isolation which can be tedious and cause injuries.
Really?

Quote:
It also replaces several pieces of established gym equipment – dumb bells (small hand weights for the bicep lifted with one hand), bar bells (weights on each side of a bar to be lifted with both hands), kettlebells (an iron ball with a handle), medicine ball (weighted basketball), balance device (inflatable semicircular ball used for floor training), and speed ladder (plastic ladder).
Yeah, none of those hit the spot. Point taken.

I think i just died a little bit

The ad copy is pretty scary

Apparently i've been wasting my time with those heavy barbell thingys

Apparently I should be training for all that strongman stuff with a 20kg pipe

"be suitable for all ages and abilities with weights ranging from 4kg to 20kg"

Pooper or whatever it's called apparently

" uses the four pillars of human movement: gravity infused, stretch-to-shorten, tri-planar and integrated."

Wish i'd been doing that before

Before we go any further with this i'd like to solemnly promise that the first time i see one of those things in a gym i'm going to break it and then drop a kettlebell on someones foot for being an ass.

That's painful to look at.
