    Someone sent me this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3kJvkiLvzs .

    I thought all that bum-jiggling was a bit kinky, but the results look slightly more promising than lettuce and prune juice week after bloody week.

    Has anyone tried it?

    Cheers.

    Somewhere between that and the Shakeweight, I think the fitness industry has been hiring equipment designers from porn companies.

    That's what I thought it was at first, or just a spoof, but then I saw it on the telly.

    I'm not that obsessed with having abs, but in Vancouver there seems to be this fetish for beach-boys or dainty Japanese guys, so I thought I'd give it a go if it actually works (which I doubt).

    The only thing that works is diet.
    The machine will help, simply because of the cardio ability...but you can get that in much less expensive ways.

    Thanks for the advice, guys, keep it coming.

    The one thing that worries me about too much exercise is that, apparently, it reduces your life-span. It's better to do exercise in moderation and limit calories so that your body is forced to slow down its metabolic rate.

    It's not conclusive, but it would be a shame to kick the bucket just when you've developed the perfect set of abs and got emails reading "Nice bod, what's your number, sweetie?" ;).

    exercise doesn't reduce your life span.. regular cardiovascular exercise as we resistance based helps promote better hormonal balance within your body, promot feelings of wellness, burns calories.

    Resistance based exercise (weights) is great for building bone density ( you should be having a minimum of 1200g of calcium every day and not taken with caffeine which inhibits calcium absorption) and promotes muscular development

    I didn't mean that exercise reduces longevity, I meant in excess it may.

    I was referring to things like the CRON-diet, based on studies that suggest reduced caloric intake and moderate exercise force the body to slow down and not age as rapidly. It's suggested it may be an evolutionary coping mechanism, relating to how we can survive food shortages long enough to perpetuate the species.

    I concur that exercise in the right amount is crucial, since people who exercise have lower resting heart rates, which is good for health ;).

    I'd rather die at 60 with a hot body and daily sex requests, than live a sexless life to age 90. icon_razz.gif
