I did a search first and didn't find any threads so I'll ask;

Is a Total Gym any good to have when you train hard and already lift weights? Kinda stupid sounding question but my Aunt offered to give me hers and I have no clue if I should invest any time in learning it or tell her thanks but no thanks.

Right now I do mainly Oly lifts, cleans, high pulls, squats etc...type exercises for athletic strength but I am always open to supplement my training.

Thanks for any insight and help

In Brad Morris Australia you don't do Total Gym; Total Gym does you.
Brad Morris once visited the virgin islands, now they're just called 'the islands.'
Duke is probably like wtf did I get myself into? lol
I heard that guys in jail are getting huge, and it's all thanks to the total gym.
Scientists have estimated that the energy from the big bang was equal to 1BMRHK (brad Morris roundhouse kick)
If there's a plane on the total gym and the total gym is set to move at exactly the same speed....
Surely a total gym would be good for rehab/prehab stuff?
The reason I suck at strength is because I'm stuck lifting crude iron plates on a bar that I have to balance because I can't afford a total gym. If only I had a generous aunt.
