If you want to add weight to your workout, try a weight vest instead. Not that they look any less ridiculous, but at least they're more mechanically sound.
7. Sauna suits
Donning a head-to-toe vinyl sweatsuit while exercising has got to be one of the grossest, weirdest, most uncomfortable, and, frankly, dangerous decisions you can make. These awful contraptions literally steam the water right out of you which is not a legitimate solution for weight loss. It's a legitimate solution for chaffing, sweat-soaked underwear and potential heat stroke. The outcomes are almost as sexy as these suits look.
Unless, of course, you're Matthew Modine in Vision Quest, in which case a sauna suit will help take you all the way to the state championships.
8. Bodysuits and leotards
For real, could someone please explain the resurgence in bodysuits and leotards? They certainly don't make anyone look better, so how, in actual fact, do they improve a workout? Don't they give you camel toe and wedgies? Isn't it harder to take a bathroom break? Isn't head-to-toe spandex uncomfortable? So many questions, so few answers.
