    Besides infomercial machines, what's the most useless?

    in regards to what?

    for me most machines are pretty worthless, but for some they play an improtant role in their work-outs.

    I guess the one that comes to mind is that standing "hip thing", not sure what they're called, but I see people using them and think to myself what a waste of energy. You would be so much better off doing some free weight squats or even dumbbell lunges.

    I agree with you on that one, Prince - I've seen a lot of people using that standing hip machine, but it has never done anything for me at all. I like many machines because they helped me learn how to concentrate on movement, etc...even though I agree that free weights probably maximize efficiency, if one learns good form.

    There's some laying down hip machine thingy that has never made any sense to me at all.

    Yes, Vanity...

    That must be frustrating... I fortunately never had to use one of those. If I did though, I think I would keep that one to myself.

    Yeah, I agree Mudge.
    It's usually us men that get hit harder with problems in the ab area. Seems the more problems you have, the harder it is for the traditional methods to solve em. For instance, I hate situps <ugggg>. Any machine I can use to make the ab work easier, I'm all for it .
