    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

    LOL! You should start a series of Chuck Norris style Brad Morris jokes.

    EDIT: Grrr... Chase beat me to it.

    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.'

    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.
