In a world where time is limited and arms are flabby, came a little bit of exercise heaven. AKA the Shake Weight.
The poor Shake Weight has been the butt of many jokes. Mostly because it kind of looks like you're masturbating when you use it. Now stifle your giggles girls, yes I said masturbation, now we can actually get to the nitty gritty of my love for the Shake Weight.
For those that don't know what the Shake Weight is – it's effectively a large dumbbell with a weight inside it – when shaken the weight uses momentum to keep…umm bouncing. Here's what the website says:
"Shake Weight® Utilizes New Workout Technology Called Dynamic Inertia, which can increase Muscle Activity to nearly 300% compared to a Standard Dumbbell"
For only six minutes a day – you probably can get the super toned arms that the infomercial models sport quite wonderfully – but honestly – six minutes a day is QUITE a workout with this thing. I recommend closer to two minutes to start and then build it up to six (I also say a slow build…)
But even with my two minutes a day (or every other day) I have noticed a difference and feel the burn and enjoy the work out. My arms are still a little flabby but they're getting there, definitely slimmer, and definitely more toned. Perhaps I'll extend my workout to six minutes and get super buff for y'all?
SO there you have it. I love my Shake Weight, it works (it's cheap) and if I get less lazy/busy I'm going to have super toned infomercial model arms (but I'm quite happy with what I'm getting)
