    Anyone used one? Are they any good? And how long does it take to see results?

    They're popping up everywhere in gyms now. People just seem to do half-arsed pressups / just sit on them.

    Yes, I use skyhooks to keep it up, they were a pain to get up as I am left handed but I found a lefthanded screwdriver to sort the problem out.

    I needed one of them. Went to B&Q and asked the assistant there, and all he could give me was a long weight. :dontknow:

    Should have gone to tesco instead, I got one there and also was able to find some waterproof teabags and a really useful glass hammer, they have everything.

    I have a 'powerplate', but I never use it for exercize - the gym/bike is for that. Its great for getting deeper stretches and massaging aching muscles. Its also supposed to be good for improving circulation and helping injuries, but its awful for building muscle.

    They do the job that they say they will do.

    Sounds like a good shopping trip. Talking of useful stuff, do you reckon they sell "Vibroplates"? I hear they're pretty good... :dunce:
