I've been developing new revolutionary home gym equipment, I've had a prototype built and looking to expand by getting this into all gyms.
I call it the tank because it makes me look like a tank, I'm a pretty ripped guy and found this worked me more than barbells and dumbells.
Tell me what you think
Hah, your legs have failed tho, going into a push up position would fucking blow, youd be relying on your arms to support you. So its like a bridge, but with locked elbows, supporting 150+ or w/e that thing holds
About as endless as that weight the guy in the video has got strapped to that thing.
Jesus Christ what are you thinking?
Do you have any idea what this will do to your center of gravity and by proxy what it will do to your lower back?
If you want to do weighted push ups then get a backpack and fill it up with plates, it's safer and cheaper.
It looks unsafe
Cant handle heavy weights
The weights are all put on your lower back, it pulls you forward
I.. dont get it, Im sorry.
Guess this sometimes happens to inventors, they invent but everything cant make it. Good try, now try out something different.
Please dont invest any more money into this. It will not be an item used by anyone seriously doing exercise, maybe some would be bought by dummies that dont know any better.
have a good day
>The ALEC gym goes up to a massive 220 kilos so even the strongest of athletes will be challenged by it.
oh yeah your chest is a good place to strap 220kgs to and do squats. why not just place it on a pin on your head?
>so even the strongest of athletes will be challenged by it
WTF LOL BRO
> sides are in orbit
I havent laughed so hard in ever
Unless I'm crazy, it looks like a copy of the Powerpohl. And that one has way better applications.
Sorry, it isn't that original or revolutionary, also, less resistance.
But it's prettier.
So did this retard not realize that other people had already made more ergonomic, and higher quality weight vests than him?
>That moment when you realise this is real.
I'm crying and I don't feel sad in the slightest.
Haven't laughed this hard in a long time!
Vogelpohl won't be happy you stole his device OP
would you re-brand this as a chest mounted dildo if there was enough demand?
This could actually get curlbros to start squatting
>Oh the weight is so large my legs have failed! Let me just do a fucking pushup to recover.
Also I feel kind of sorry for the wife. Pretty obvious the husband is some loser who "works from home" trying to make the next big invention while the wife supports the family.
The funnies thing about this is that it is true and it's not a troll....this is one of the best days on fit....TANK MAN HAS BEEN BORN !
i wanna hug you bro, you need a hug. You also need some common sense, this idea is retarded, there is very little room to improve in the fitness industry, the programs, routines, and equipment are as close to perfect as you need, you just gotta pay for the right gym/your own set.
>I'm almost sold....after all he is "a fitness entrepreneur"
>can't argue with that
At the beginning you won't have problems but you will get really bad joint pain at higher weights. It's basic anatomy: during the lift tension is distributed through the muscles but at full extension the joints take all the weight. One way ticket to snap city. Benching is fine just don't lock out.
Hey OP don't believe what others say !
I like your device and I would very much like to purchase one as soon as it is for sale.
I'm sure a lot of people think like me this is truly remarkable and I think it will revolutionize the whole fitness industry.
You might even put some gyms out of work.
I sure would rather doing push ups and squatting with you lovely device instead of using those damn unsafe and uncomfortable barbells.
OP how do I contact you about buying one of these fine pieces of equipment
OP I am too an inventor and a fitness entrepreneur but as far as I see I think my device is superior to yours.
It involves a "special"barbell and some other "special"equipment which you can purchase from my website which is still in development for the price of 2000 and it comes with everything in the photo.
I know it's a little more but it is the safest invention yet i guarantee it on my fitness enterpreneurness .
pic related my invention
/fit/ thread 2014 fucking winner holy shit tank man
Dear OP, if you are still here, do not give a shit about ANYTHING said to you in this thread, this is /fit/, /fit/ is not a board where you actually talk about fitness, it is a board of self-centered bigots that think they know EVERYTHING there is to know on this world, whatever you ask them, they will have an opinion on, and you will not be able to change it. Keep up with your work, I personally don't think it is worth the price, for that price, you could get ALOT of shit, lower the price down, put it on one of those TV channels where people sell shit like the shamwow or some shit, or try some other way.
are you kidding me you dense motherfucker? did you even watch his retarded emergency procedure video? shit is fucking unsafe, his idea is retarded, and if some dumbass was stupid enough to actually buy this piece of shit there's a pretty good chance they'll injure themselves if they ever make it to any kind of serious weight with it.
OP 1500 quid for a weight vest is pretty insane, but I guess if you market it well it could go somewhere. Maybe add some wheels on the back so you can do wall squats
A moveable, solid arm system with ajustable resistancr would be fucking jazz for handstand and planche assistance. Just find a way to distribute the weight so you dont tobble over and it doesn't look like you have kind ascended lightweight extreme chode (ALEC)
>Just find a way to distribute the weight
You seem to understand how our product works. The weight is designed to isolate of the front side of the torso to provide quick and easy 6-pack abs.
Bro...£1500=$2570 in USD (Exchange rate 11Jul14.) $1500 is stupid expensive. $2500 is "what the fuck is wrong with you" expensive.
However, this guy could make a killing selling this stupid shit in Skymall.
This is quite possibly the best /fit/ humor thread I've ever seen.
Show me your quick & easy abs. I want to see them. Does it come in the right fitting for a gentleman of... ample size? Of course I believe your credible claims about spot fat removal (which totally completely really definitely does really exist for certain sure) but I wish to see your stunning results for myself so that I may know that my investment is sound.
>eliminates unnecessary equipment
I lost you. You must have missed a sentence or something.
Have a quick release
Drop the price
You'll have a solid invention someday op

isnt this less safe than a back squat as it forces a forward lean making a rounding of the back more likely?
lets assume youre going to back squat something like 4 pl8...no way in hell that your core could handle that forward pulling force
OP, besides any personal reservations about your product, you have to take into account the fact that a lot of people who lift already have bad posture and subsequent back pains/problems (read the fucking sticky guys).
Translated into business jargon, the market share of people who would actually put their core and back under such a strain is pretty limited (see: casuals).
Also, do I really wanna wear some sweat-infused smelly jacket thing when I'm lifting? You know, when the fabric is actually dyed yellow and smells like putrid urea?
I think if you somehow managed to drop the price and made it use Olympic plates it would be better. I reckon that the majority of the price is coming from the plates? You've got a good prototype but it needs a lot more work. Good job so far though man, I'm sure you'll find success.
anyone have a screencap of that thread where the dude fucks the whale who drinks big gulps?
Goddamn. A minute and a half in, he hasn't explained a damn thing about how this ridiculous thing is safe. Tank man, I love you, you've destroyed my sides with your brilliance, but get to the fucking point already. Get a better microphone and stop saying 'mkay' every five seconds.
> check my sick tank editing skills
The editing is autist mode. I shat ma pants laughing.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
Yeah, that's kind of why I posted a comment joking about it...
I've been developing new revolutionary may may, I've had a prototype built and looking to expand by getting this into all websites.
I call it the tank-man because it makes man look like a tank, I'm a pretty ripped guy and found this amused me more than barbells and dumbells.
If a vendor's answer to customers' safety misgivings is just "you don't understand the science of it," then congratulations, you're not selling shit.
I could buy 7 squat racks each with some pretty good spotter catchers for the money the tank thing costs. I hope this guy dies.
I'd buy that for £1500.
>he spelt Christian wrong
>he thinks he is some sort of Travis Bickle
>i can't handle this anymore
This needs to replace the dinosaur of the sticky.
>Benching is fine just don't lock out.
What in the actual fuck are you babbling about?
He posted a video addressing complaints he got on YouTube, not /fit/. He even questioned the age of the people commenting on his videos.
If this dude was Tank Man then I think he'd be able to make the link between the links being posted on /fit/ and the Youtube comments.
Someone's found the vid, posted them here and pretended to be the guy.
going to convert a Gorkanaut with a huge cannon in the front and dedicate it to tank man. I am dead serious. Going to write ALEC on it too.
Reminds me of the Frank Zane leg blaster
Master ruseman reporting in
Plebbit will bring this to the masses.
God Help us.
BARBELLS ARE FINISHED
Rippetoe is going to have to write a whole new book. Gyms everywhere will need to spend millions in remodeling. New rules for weightlifting in the Olympics. It's jappening...
holy shit I finaly found a new enemy for Milk Pill to fight
new Milk Pill comic incoming
shit man, i actually feel a little bad for the guy. he's obviously pretty strange, and whoever the woman is helping makes the videos sounds like she knows he's nuts and is just humoring him.
on the other hand, this thread is epic and funny as hell.
are too good
fucking kek'd so hard i pooped. shit was cash.
OH FUCK I THINK IT MIGHT BE THE SAME GUY WHO MADE THIS
Oh no I've failed the rep let me just go fucking doggstyle
Shall we encourage him to go on Dragons Den? He seems the type who would and if we post him the link and give it enough thumbs up he'll do it
yes please do it ...I pray to Zyzz and Scooby that he posts there ....
Haven't got a legit youtube so i've emailed him on the site. Gave him my real email to so i can let you guys know as soon as he replies to me
The top of the message cut off but just said
>Hello i recently watched your videos on
Inverted - Upside down or opposite position
Rows - To bend over and pull the bar up to your chest
Isn't an inverted row a push up then? So you can do many exercises on the push up stand including push ups
Inverted rows are apparently done on a pullup bar like pic related... I have no idea how the hell you would do that with his contraption
>plus it looks like a useless exercise anyway
