Shake Weight

A revolutionary dumbbell that tones your arms in just six minutes.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Shake Weight is an arm strengthening and toning hand weight that features Dynamic Inertia, a kind of technology that ignites the muscles in your arm, shoulders and chest.

The Shake Weight has been featured on television infomercials as well as on the Ellen DeGeneres show and in Glamour magazine.

The Shake Weight is targeted towards women, although a male Shake Weight can also be purchased. The device, which is like a vibrating arm weight, claims to increase upper body muscle activity by more than 300% compared to traditional weights.

PRO
  • May help to strengthen and tone upper arms
  • Convenient fitness tool
CON
  • Looks a bit gimmicky
  • Result claims are likely exaggerated
  • May break down
  • Ads are sexually suggestive and may offend some potential consumers
  • No diet guidance

DIET and NUTRITION

There are no diet or nutrition guidelines associated with this product.

EXERCISE

The Shake Weight features the Dynamic Inertia technology, which is supposed to help tone and strengthen your arms, shoulders and chest. By using the Shake Weight six minutes a day, you are supposed to get a complete upper body workout.

CONCLUSION

The Shake Weight is a bizarre piece of fitness equipment designed to help women sculpt lean and toned upper arms. But the product's website and accompanying infomercials are not only a bit sexually suggestive but they also have a gimmick or fad feel to them.

While the product may provide some comic relief, its claims of producing lean and sculpted arms in just six minutes a day are likely exaggerated.

My belief is any sort of exercise is beneficial. If you follow the instructional dvd that comes along with it, it's not really 6 minutes but closer to 11. Afterwards I definatley feel a burn and after a week I already notice a bit of a difference. $20 for a convieniant easy work out, it's worth it.

I liked this product. Well, I've only used it once and I feel the burn in the back of my arms, which never happens, front and chest muscles.

Obviously, the Shake Weight is not going to make someone very much over weight magically transform into one of the lovely models in the Shake Weight commercial.
But as a person who has a regular weight-training routine, I have found the Shake Weight a nice, lightweight and cheap addition to my home training equipment.
I have added to Shake Weight to my arms and shoulders routine in addition to what I'm already doing. I have to admit, after about 2 weeks, I am seeing areas of the triceps, pecs and shoulders ripping out a little more than expected....The 6 minute workout definately provides the burn.
I don't use it everyday.....only about twice a week.
