    Talking Bizarre Fitness Videos?

    Primal Fuel
    I was sifting through fitness videos online and I can't believe how ridiculous some are.
    This one especially: http://www.surfergirlworkout.com/

    If you watch the video on their site you will be able to see why I felt like laughing and crying at the same time when I got it.
    These girls look like they're going to break with 1 pound weights. Even though the lead girl, Amber something, looks cheery and peppy her voice remains monotonous, save for some giggles, throughout the whole workout.
    I couldn't even bring myself to start it. I just stood there in disbelief.

    My favourite part of the video is at the end when she says... "I can't think..................(of a better reason)". I also enjoy the vacant stares of the other girls (who never utter a sound).

    In staggering contrast: the Tahitian girl WHO TALKS IN CAPS!!!!!!!!!!! and her loyal group of hoola dancers. Well, I must admit, these girls have killer abs (though I doubt it's indicative of the effectiveness of the workout). It does look like fun. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8b_bqYVmueU

    I also think BodyRock is soft core porn that tries to pass as a fitness workout but I know I will be skewered by some of the guys here :3
    I did try to do some of her exercises, but was distracted by the moaning and the ass/ cleavage zooms. For about 30% of the workout all I could see is boobs and I wasn't sure what the right form was (on the knees? in the nude? what? Don't know if that's a publicity strategy or just the bf's/ camera man's "angle".

    Then there's the celebrity workouts that swear they're different than all other "no-name" cardio workouts, and that following the workout 3 times a week for 16 years you'll look exactly like the celebrity of your choice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlAauC4EFrA

    And last and least, my favourite: the notion that if you have some beefed up dude yelling at you with corny techno music in the background you're somehow increasing the intensity of your excruciatingly boring cardio routine.

    All that's left are guru Tony Horton and martial arts workouts from the 80s (which I love!)

    Do you have anything ridiculous to add to the list?

    country line dancing aerobics :-?
    I can't tell where this workout falls? Cardio or...? Moving (very) slowly? I'm sure this is a staple in some Southern old folks' home.

    "pigeon. window washer. baaaaaaasketbaaaaall", combining cardio with another great sport: scrabble.

    Okay, should I state the obvious here?... the benefits of the shaker can be obtained elsewhere... and for free... in fact, some will pay for you to exercise those arm muscles

    Ok. Just looked at the surfer girl one and DAMN! Those girls need to be set down with BIG plate of food! They are scary skinny and look horrible! They need real food and some heavy stuff to lift so maybe they won't be so scrawny!

    It's not an instructional video, or even all that bizarre, but this video of Gwenyth Paltrow with her trainer Tracy Anderson is a hilarious and sad distillation of the Conventional Wisdom, Chronic Cardio, Hollywood-Industral Complex mentality.

    "No woman should lift more than three pounds," because women are meant to be weak and fragile, obviously!

    "When you're 35, you either starve yourself, or you eat and do serious cardio," because calories in must always equal calories out!

    *mouth agape with deer-caught-in-the-headlights stare*

    Um. Okay.

    Does anyone want to go on a hike? Carry some heavy things?
