Amazing- where are we going?


This is the copy of an email forwarded to me.
Do we really need this? Unfortunately this is where the field id going!
“We are doing a lot of adductor and abductor work here while squatting and leg pressing. Could you make a pillow like device with a bio feedback “tone” embedded to emit a certain tone at a certain level of pressure in order to keep our people firing their adductors? Also, the same device embedded in a belt that would go around the thighs and or upper calves in order to keep them firing their abductors. The pillow could even be hour glass shaped in order to stay between the legs. The belt could be like a seat belt or like a double velcro deal that is quick on and quick off with a detachable strain gauge “toner” that could go from belt to belt.”
I really hope this was a joke, but I don’t think it was!
