Before I moved the gym there had one and boy was it a butt kick! As to the calories, I'm not sure, it was before my BMF (Body Media Fit) and before I was religiously tracked calories burned. But if you have the opportunity, def try it out!

Today with my trainer I would alternate weight machines with 3 minutes on the Jacob's Ladder. It was SO HARD but a great workout. It was hard for me to get used to the JL at first, but now I would totally recommend it if you are looking for a one stop workout.

It's a full body movement and you're moving most of your bodyweight. Seems like a hell of a workout to me. It would be among the highest calorie burning types of activities you can do.

From what I see on youtube, the machine comes with a calorie estimator...

No idea about calories but it is sooo cool. I'm in good shape but could only do about 15 minutes. Sadly my current gym doesn't have one...such a challenge!

Has anyone ever used a Jacob's Ladder exercise machine before? What did you think and how long did you do.

Any estimates on how many calories it burns an hour?
