7 minute abs

This is a great scene from one of the funniest movies ever. It also demonstrates the absurdity of most of the fitness infomercial industry.

You see a guy or girl driving a beautiful car and you wonder was that obtained from corporate buy out money that left stock holders losing their life’s savings. If you see someone with a terrific physique was that the result of chemical enhancement. It makes me wonder. Read more…
