Her squat wasn’t too(ooo) bad. I got a pleasant surprise, anyway. I think she was intentionally playing dumb so the viewers didn’t feel bad. Space isn’t just ‘no exercise on earth’ bad, it is much, much worse:
Weightlessness triggers the human body to excrete calcium and phosphorus (in urine and feces), resulting in rapid bone loss. In the time it takes to get to Mars and back, a crew member?s bone density loss will be equivalent to that of a lifetime on Earth. Like osteoporosis on Earth, bone loss in space can lead to fractures, weakness and painful urinary stones. The most dramatic changes occur in the heel bone, femoral neck, lumbar spine and pelvis. Exercise in space and upon return can help slow the loss, but it will take two years or more of dedicated, consistent training upon return to repair it. Artificial gravity would also serve to mitigate this problem is it is part of the mission design.
Recent research implies that gravity helps cells create patterns. In microgravity, the microtubules in developing cells might not organize the same way they would on Earth, even after the astronauts return. It is unknown how this will affect the Mars crew over the long term.

I was impressed with the machine, actually. Looks like they were aiming for something like a monolift rather than something like a smith machine.
But, silly me. Pretty girl. No, wait, pretty dumb girl. So… My brain has been given permission not to work. Graw.
