Shake Weight

I have to ask! Is the Shake Weight a viable piece of workout equipment for your upper body? I know it is for your stomach since you will be laughing so hard. =D But other than the laughs, which are good for your health, is it worth $20 & 6 minutes a day?

PS - I don't think I could ever use this in front of the kids. Know what I mean?

Hello!

This piece of equipment claims to work on principle of “dynamic inertia”. The Shake Weight alleges to give users, lean, sculpted arms and shoulders.

I do not believe much in their claims.  I believe the old school method of balancing your diet and going for proper cardio to be in shape.

Take care!

Thank you for your opinion Dr. Vinod!. I am sceptical myself, which I thought I would see what other people thought. I think I will take your advice & stick to old fashioned cardio & toning exercises. Maybe I will use the $20 for a couple of workout videos.

Take care!
