Alarm clock, or alarming?

I am not sure how I feel about this.

On the one hand, if you want to wake up every morning and immediately do 30 reps with a dumbbell, more power to you.

On the other hand, what if you’re in a rush and you don’t have time to do the reps but are awake anyway? Is there an emergency shut off?

And on the third hand which I appear to have spontaneously generated, is this just another straw on the back of the camel currently transporting the rest of the fat-phobic, faux-health craziness in our society?

You decide.

  1. Annoying? Maybe. Effective? Unquestionably!

    Yeah, until the person who bought it realizes what a fucking waste of time the whole thing is, and literally throws it out the window.

    Then the next news story you’re going to see about this particular “health device” is how it’s killing thousands of people… by falling on their heads from tall apartment buildings.

  2. Hah! Yeah!

    Man, I almost forgot I made this post. I did it at, like 7 in the morning after three hours of unpleasant awakeness preceded by three hours of fitful “sleep.”

    Spiders. Ugh.

    On the other hand, if you goal is simply to build arm muscle, it would be quite a bit more effective than if you’re looking to conform to standard beauty norms.

    I considered it for about a half second, since I’ve lately been wanting to build strength in my arms but suck at…you know…doing anything about it. :)

  3. Haha, drowsy posting is worse then drunk dialing!

    That is totally useless. To get the stupid thing to shut off do you really think ANYONE, even those with a desire to use the thing are going to take their time and do the reps correctly?

    HECK NO! They are gonna pump as fast and uneffectively as possible to get the dern thing to SHUT UP, then toss it out the window like futz said onto the head of some poor schmuck.

  4. oh yes.. I would have enjoy finding a new way to annihilate that thing. I despise alarm clocks beeping noise on the best of mornings (preferring setting the wake timer on my tv, or my fave song on my cell) if I had to deal with 30 reps of the sound… something would get very hurt… they would be lucky I didn’t know the inventors home address :P I can be a bear in the morning lol

  5. My apologies for the slow comment moderation going on. I tend to forget that this blog has that function. A couple of you got stuck in the approval queue. I wish I knew what WordPress’s criteria were.
