Most Useless Equipment in the Gym?


#1

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.


#2

The assisted dip/pullup machine.


#3

Smith Machine


#4

The Personal Trainer.


#5

Actually, I use this one every week...for one arm pullups.

Also, I never fail to see at least one person super-setting bench presses with one of them.
