This "exercise machine" is apparently designed to help you slim down and tighten up your lower body. You know: butts, legs, thighs, hips, etc. How does it do that? With squat and lunge motions, 2 of the absolute best exercise movements in existence -- and not just for "lower body reduction".
But here's the 2 major problems with this scam product:
- It makes squats and lunges less effective by supporting your body weight and decreasing resistance. Why the heck would we want to do that? If anything, we'd want to make these movements a little bit more difficult by adding some resistance (like weights, resistance bands, or even a heavy book balanced on your head!).
- 2. It costs money. Why would someone pay money to do two of the best FREE exercises known to man?
If you really wish to make squats easier just hold onto the back of a sturdy chair or something similar while you do them. It will be significantly easier to balance and you can use your upper body strength if you need some assistance. If you do this type of "assisted squat" on a regular basis you'll soon build up your leg strength and stamina and you won't need a chair for help, much less the 3 Minute Legs gadget!
Don't agree with me? Then please share your own reviews and opinions of the 3 Minute Legs device. I'd love to hear why it's not the biggest piece of "fitness" crap ever and a huge rip-off. Thanks!! :D
Oh I almost forgot, here's a video of the 3 Minute Legs commercial:
That's just hilarious.
