Useless workouts are the ones that include exercises that don't tone you up or slim you down and include a wealth of useless exercises. To avoid exercises that won't help you towards your workout goal, check out this list of worthless exercises you shouldn't be doing.

What are the most useless exercises? For many years people have been pushing a ton of unnecessary exercises on us. Here are the ones you can skip in favor of more important things, like eating. But, if you're looking for some serious workout ideas I suggest the ab workouts, or these bicep building exercises.

Face Stretches

The hair, the high-cut bodysuit, the faces. Oh how we don't miss the 80's. Now it's reasonable to view your facial muscles as muscles like the rest of your body, but it's not reasonable to go completely AWOL with your "facial stretches." I love how the lady in the video gets wiped out at 02:12 after performing the most hideous facial spasm. That must have taken a lot of ugly energy to do. As you can see in this video, there is no exercise that you can do to erase that "Too many years snortin blow in The Rainbow bathroom with a promising local band" look. That lady's got it down.

Jumping Jacks

Perhaps the most primary move in exercise--remember 5th grade Physical Education?--jumping jacks also exist today as the most laughable fitness trick. Just look at the Iraqi Army the US is training. Even they know we're idiots for having implemented this so long in our routine that they're practically making a joke out of it. Either that or they really don't have the coordination for this "advanced" move. We spent millions of dollars on this, but let's face it, besides 80's sex comedies, jumping jacks really have no purpose. They don't achieve any substantial kind of cardio, strength or core training. I don't think they even burn calories. Have you ever seen someone try and sell a "Abs through Jumping Jacks video?"

Toe Raisers

Alyssa Milano has accomplished a lot for the kingdom of single, lonely men in her years as a sexy actress. Not to mention her unattainability and great seats for the Dodgers. This chick is every guy's fantasy. Too bad her whole "Toe Raisers" exercise idea shown from 0:05 to 0:51 in the video that she tried to con us a while back is also a fantasy. She tried to make the exercise seem intelligible by calling it "pronating" and "supernating" when normal folk would just see it as shifting your weight from the heel to the toes. Alyssa and her crew also faked panting breath throughout the video, but that might just be punishment for their horrid rapping.
