Most Useless Equipment in the Gym?


What is the one piece of equipment in your gym that you never use, and why?

For me, it's probably the 4-way neck machine. I could maybe see it if you had a neck injury and needed to do rehab, but would much rather spend my time on other lifts.


The assisted dip/pullup machine.


Smith Machine


The Personal Trainer.

The crunch machine. Seriously…


That which I do not utilize must be useless.


Torso Rotation machine for sure


the pussy pad.


Either the plate-loaded crunch machine or the torso rotation machine.
Also, I never fail to see at least one person super-setting bench presses with one of them.

The other people telling you how to lift properly when they do not bench, squat, or dead.
