Bodybuilders and YouTubers “MattDoesFitness” and Zack Perna tested the mettle of the net’s most viral and “obscene” fitness products — but do they live up to the hype of their infomercials?

If you’ve ever channel surfed on the sofa, you’ve likely seen infamous TV spots for such items as the “shake weight,” ab stimulators, and various other items meant to take the “work” out of your workout.

Boasting lofty claims and supposedly shocking results, Gymshark athlete MattDoesFitness decided to put these products’ pride to the test in a hilarious video that exposed some of television’s most widely-advertised fitness enhancers.

YouTuber and athlete MattDoesFitness tested the mettle of infomercials’ most famous workout products.

Of course, Matt began with the “shake weight,” noting that the product felt as though it had been assembled at the now-defunct Toys-R-Us.

Upon watching the informercial, both Matt and his co-host Zack Perna couldn’t help but laugh at its apparent difficulty, calling it “absolutely outrageous” and were “amazed that it’s allowed to exist.”

However, the “PY Neckline” machine actually impressed Zack, who claimed that he could feel the double chin-eliminator actually working his neck muscles.

“I actually feel it in my neck,” he admitted. “Dude, I’m not gonna lie, this is actually, like… I get DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) here!”

The PY Neckline device advertises a simmer neckline with daily use – a machine that surprised the Gymshark athletes.

Matt was also pleasantly surprised by the “Workout Arms” machine, admitting that it does work the triceps — although its ability to help the biceps and chest is a bit murky, in comparison.

“Fair enough,” he began. “To an extent, you are engaging your triceps. Biceps, that’s mechanically impossible. Chest — if you have the weakest chest in the world.”

These were far from the most outrageous product, though, with the duo later trying out the “Slim Suit,” designed to allegedly help weight loss while doing everyday tasks.

To drive the ridiculousness of the suit home, the athletes wore the “duct tape” duds out in public, even using some of their newfound workout equipment in full view of confused onlookers.

While some of the fitness products pleasantly surprised the Gymshark athletes, they ultimately encouraged getting results the good old-fashioned way: by hitting the gym and eating right.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
