SEE: How Working Out in 1892 Looked Like a Form of Torture

Pretty much everyone is obsessed with the latest work out trends around, and that goes for those in the 1800s as well.

It was in the late 1800s that work out machines were first created, and it is safe to say that they looked nothing like they do today. In fact after looking at the slideshow above it is easy to think they even look like some forms of torture methods. The photos are of Dr. Gustav Zander’s creations, these snapshots are now kept y Stockholm’s National Museum of Science and Technology.

We think we will stick to working out in 2016.
