It’s not often something in the fitness world makes news, but the unorthodox Shake Weight has women chirping about the possibility of toned triceps and laughing about the rest. The marketers behind the Shake Weight must be delirious with how much press their suggestive “exercise” has received.

Check out Ellen talking about the ShakeWeight:

So it’s received lots of press and everybody loves to laugh about it, but does the Shake Weight actually work? Numerous web reviews from actual owners say yes, you can feel that your triceps have been given a workout afterwords. I don’t own a ShakeWeight, but I’ll agree the motion that shows in the commercials is going to hit your triceps and shoulders. So yes, technically it works if you continually plug away at it as if you would a regular workout, but therein lies the marketing genius.

First, the shake weight isn’t going to burn anything above a scintilla of fat off your body. Thus, if you have flabby arms you might be able to get a little more muscle, but you still need to burn fat. Second, there’s a subliminal message that goes along with the Shake Weight that it will somehow help you lose weight or get in shape, when it will do nothing of the kind. Still, people will buy the ShakeWeight under these pretenses and then throw it in the back of the closet once a new fad hits the market. In the end, all the ShakeWeight does is basically give you 1 tricep exercise for $19.95 (postage and handling).

If you really want to do it, you could just buy a 2.5 lb dumbell and imitate the commercials. Or you could just go to the gym and do some tris and shoulders.

Think of the Shake Weight as 1 tiny car accessory in an auto parts store. Can it help you with an aspect of your car? Sure, but it matters less than 1% in the whole scheme of things. The Shake Weight is akin to replacement seat covers in comparison to regular cardio exercise being an engine.

    I own the Shake Weight and really like it. I’ve been using it since new years after my cardio, my arms are definitely more toned. Yes, no piece of equipment is going to do all the work. But adding in the Shake Weight with your other exercise and fitness routines, really does create the results they advertise. I ordered it off their website http://www.buyshakeweight.com They have a triple money back guarantee. I would try it before judging it. The results speak for themselves.

    • kxwaal

      You own a Shake Weight?!?! This means you may have JUST the skills I’m looking for!! You should drop me a line…

    • Bryan

      I can’t believe how aggressively these shake weight employees are posting positive reviews to try and make it look legit. It got 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon…BS! It’s a piece of garbage that makes you look like you’re giving a robot a hand~job. Might as well give yourself a hj and get the same amount of exercise and not feel like a total dillhole.

    Julie,

    I think you and I basically agree. You seem to have some affiliation to ShakeWeight so you just didn’t like the way I wrote the article.

  • Julie James

    Kris – if you can send me your email address, I want to send you the Fitness IQ Report behind Shake Weight and Dynamic Inertia with the facts and testimonials from professionals about how exactly the Shake Weight works. I just want you to read the study so you can have the information. I hope to hear from you soon – and I’ll get that study right over to you. california.fitness.fanatic@gmail.com

  • John

    Hi Kris, I actually wrote a review of this product on http://www.worldofdiets.com/shake-weight/ but was surprised by the number of reviews that people posted saying the product seems to work for them. I am still skeptical and wouldn’t advise anyone to give up their regular training quite yet.

    • big joe

      you guys are stupid and ignorant
      this WILL NOT work
      people are stupid and should learn to work out correctly

  • Regan4000

    Julie…. you are ridiculously obviously just someone working for the ‘shake weight’.

    I know people have jobs to surf the net and pretend to be satisfied customers, but I had thought (hoped) that they were a little more surreptitious.

    • Blue phongsavane

      I don’t work Regan and I can honestly say the shake weight has worked wonders for me.
      I personally hate weights for my arms and using the shake weight has toned my arms and I dont feel like dropping the weight while using it. So do not assume anyone who posts positive comments is a person who works for who knows what company, because women like me post positive comments about products that work.

  • Anonymous

    haha fckng bullsht!

  • Rex

    Julie James, we all know you work for shakeweight.

  • Kia

    I own one of those myself….and what are my results??
    I laugh and do it laugh and do it and laughed some more and do it some more.
    For all dirty and nondirty minded folks..lol it does burn and it does seem to work
    For me. I just hope I don’t look like the lady in the infomercial..YIKES!

  • http://butdoesitreallywork.com gnu

    I started using the Shake Weight about 2 weeks ago and I’m posting pictures of my progress and an ongoing review at:

    butdoesitreallywork.com

    I think it is working so far as my arms do feel a little more muscular (don’t know if you can tell from the photos) But that’s an interesting point about fat-burning since that’s what I really need to do.

  • Austin C.

    yes, people: the product is garbage…bogus. read this article from healthandfitnessadvice.com: http://www.healthandfitnessadvice.com/the-healthy-skeptic/the-shake-weight-gets-a-do-not-buy-recommendation.html

    It looks like an adult toy, love it

  • Mark

    Julie,
    Firstly I’d like to say that I own a shake weight and I think it is great! The product is designed to give your muscles multiple contractions one after another in a very short period of time, more than lets say your average curl or tricep dips can do for you. I am also a certified personal trainer and think that shake weight is a great addition to a workout. I don’t work for shake weight, I am in no way affiliated with them or Julie, but I think the product is great and that the rest of you should try it out before you judge it too harshly.

  • Erin

    I am always skeptical to buy anything from commercials, but I decided I would try it thinking it wouldn’t work. I have only been using it for 4 days, but have already lost an inch in my arms. I will post more details after another week. I’m hoping i can lose another inch. I’m 5’2 135, most of my extra weight is in my arms and stomach…so im hoping this can at least help my arms!

    • Johnny Appleseed

      Hate to break it to you Erin, but there is no such thing as spot reducing. You may be ever-so-slightly strengthening the muscles in you arm; however, you are not losing weight in your arms because of the shakeweight. Likewise, if I did abs until I was blue in the face, I would not lose any weight in my midsection because the calories burned are very minimal.

    • Travis

      How the F*** do you loose an inch in your arms in four four days!!!
      WTF! Where did you measure your arm? Around your biceps on day one and your forearm on day 4? I guess you did loose an inch with those measurements…..LMAO!

    • Travis

      I know some people go around posting positive reviews for items in blogs to help with the sales of certain products but to this post by ERIN I reply with the great words of Cris Carter from the NFL, “C’MON MAN!!!

  • glory

    I am very disappointed with the company’s response of not crediting my cc after returning the SW to them, as I was not a satisfied customer. It was over the 30 day limit so that’s it, they have the SW back and my $. Poor business PR on their part, not a happy customer on my part…not a way for them to promote their business.
    To all of you out there that are thinking of trying this product, and if you are not happy with it…send it back before your 30 days are up!

    • Dustin

      Glory… let me guess, you have a treadmill that’s been sitting in your garage for years now after being used for 1 week.

  • SIm

    Lame review. Go buy the product and use it before you comment. No credibility.

    • Kris

      Hey Jackass, I’m not going to pay $35 for something I already know is a ripoff. Anything in the world can give you a burn if you want a workout. Try holding your shoulders straight above your head for a minute – hey it’s a miracle workout, your shoulders burn. Try standing on your toes for a minute – hey it’s a miracle workout, your calves burn. Try doing 20 pushups in a row – hey it’s a miracle workout, your triceps, arms, and chest burn.

      Damn you people are stupid as hell. The shake weight is a gadget being used as a marketing ploy. You don’t need it, they just convince you you need it. Pick up two books on your palms and press them together as tight as you can away from your body. Holy shit, it’s the NEW BOOK BURNER!!! $19.95 S&H. If that doesn’t sell you, let’s throw in some pelvic thrusts so it makes you giggle at the sexual suggestion and BURN MORE CALORIES!

  • glory

    Dustin,
    Out of all these reviews, you picked mine to comment about…why thank you.
    No, my treadmill is not sitting in the garage…I use it when the weather is bad, otherwise I walk 5 miles a day+. As far as the SW is concerned, it’s the principal of the whole issue with the company. Just poor business PR on their part. By the way the total was $35.85…not $19.99. The company advertises free? shipping and handling…but then they charge postage and handing. What’s free about that? I’ve also notified the BBB of their advertising. Do you own a SW or do you work for the company?

    • Richelle

      Go get them Glory!!!!
      I’m checking out the posts to see if I should order the SW. Think I’ll pass and stick with the free weights and walking.

  • kimba

    I thought the shake weight was pretty funny looking but when I saw it in one of those As Seen on TV stores, I tried it and could really feel it in my triceps. I got one and have been using it and am seeing a difference. It doesn’t burn fat but it’ll tone your arms and give them a decent workout. It’s no substitute for the rest of your routine and a good diet but it helps an area that I find is difficult to isolate effectively. I do think some of the claims in the commercials are exaggerated as they imply it will work out your entire upper body in five minutes but for the price, I think it’s worth the investment.

  • Cassandra

    Absolute piece of junk..I already work out, and thought it would be something fun to have at home to work on my arms the days I don’t go to the gym and just use my treadmill…maybe because I didn’t really have weight to lose…I can’t say, but as far as noticing any difference or even feeling any difference there was non, zilch, nada…..put it in the Goodwill drop off bag….maybe someone else will see some difference. The best it provided was a good laugh over how stupid it looks when you actually use it…

  • Mia

    So true.. I can just do the same thing with a dumbell… Thanks for posting that, I was under the spell of the shake weight.. but just reading that comment brought me to my senses! My $30 can be put to better use. Besides, I already have a 2.5 dumbell.. As my Mother always says, “Just another invention to separate me from my money!” Kris, you saved me money today – THANK YOU!!

    • Kris

      This comment brought a smile to my face. So glad I saved you money. Thank you for the comment and so glad you didn’t buy. Get yourself something worthwhile with that $35.

    • Clare

      Saved me money to as i was seriously considering getting this and just thought i would check out some reveiws, so glad i did… my arms are my real problem area an strugglering with these, and thought i would try to get some more benefits… i dont have much money and if they dont work it is very bad advertising and and not fair to those people that dont have much money to buy but want to get fit…

  • Tami

    Most of these reviews seem to support shakeweight because they have bought it and tried it themselves. Most reviews that dont support it are from people that have not tried it. I saw the commercials and I saw it at Dick’s Sporting Goods for $20. I decided getting it at a store is always cheaper since you are not charged for postage. I already do over and hour of exercise with some swimming, stretching and some lifting of 5 pound wieghts. When I have mentioned how weights only seems to make me gain muscle but not burn fat people tell me that the muscle I build burns fat after a good amount of weeks doing it. So if Shake wieght really does tone your arms wouldn’t the muscle eventually burn fat. And if I am already doing 30 min. (350 cal) on an elliptical and 35 min (200 cal) on a bike along with other exercise moves and I add shake weight to my routine, wouldn’t I eventually get results?

    It’s really helped my pimp game. I’m pimpin’ hard, yo!

  • Rodney

    Walk away from this hunk of junk. I’ve been using it for two months now and have NO improvment what so ever. Think what you will, But try to think of your wallet when looking at the flakeweight. Trust me. It’s NOT what it’s claimed to be people!!!

  • Mr Reese

    I have the shake weight and for the ppl who are wonder it does work if you use it. Like every routine if you don’t do it then you not gonna see results. One day or two is not gonna do it. The shake weight is for toning not losing weight. Any thing that makes your muscles burn works. I don’t agree with Rodney. The men at my job have been doing it and it works if you do it correctly.

  • keenan

    ive been using the shake weight for two weeks, this works if used correctly and i mean reallyyy correct, if u dont lock your wrists the work out will be pointless and you would be wasting your time with no visible results.

  • rich

    i just bought the one for men this week. i havent gotten around to doing a full workot with it but i toyed with it a little. it takes about 10 seconds for my upper body to get hot. i wont replace my real weights with it but ill add it to my workout routine. im excited to see how it works despite the bad reviews. it burns so its doing something!

  • Lester

    I have read a lot of bad reviews about Shake Weight, mostly about how it is inevitable to obtain the same burning sensation felt during a session as if comitting to a motion conduction in everyday life, thus the only workout people are getting is in their heads, thinking that Shake Weight is actually causing these burning effects. If this was true, you must understand the power of the Placebo effect to which your body responds to your mind. You think it so it shall be, so even if the result is just in your head, it still works…My second point is that the product’s result is a response to how intense the user uses it. I can easily last the whole six minutes in a moderate pace, but can’t handle ten seconds at maximum output, thus putting up a sweat and an intense burn. I haven’t pulled a muscle, ripped a tendon, or inflicted any self injury, so what’s causing the burning sensation other than an actual workout on the muscle group? … Third point is that fatigue should not be considered a sign of the workout being useless, but rather a sign that shows how weak the user is and that the type of motion where the muscle is contracting and simultaniously redirected by the inertia of the weight as to a direct motion of lifting a dumbell. The muscle group is not used to this fatigue due to inadaptation to the new sense of motion. Fatigue shows how much work the user still needs in order to obtain true potential in strength. On the other hand, logic sometimes isn’t as truthful as it is claimed to be. The human body works mechanically and mentally. Every motion uses calories and no matter what people say, calorie loss is corelational to fat loss.
    Just remember that ShakeWeight is not meant for everyone. Therefore those who have conducted bad reviews about the machine not working for them are probably part of the percentage of people which the product does not comply to.

  • VA Corey

    Rodney says he’s been using it for 2 months with no results… If you’re doing nothing but the shake weight and complaining, you should be shot in the head.

  • Sir Brian

    Whether this thing works or not is debatable, until you actually use it for yourself. However, the most interesting thing about this “Review” of this product, is that the author NEVER claims to have used this product him or herself. I find that pretty ridiculous. I see he decided to call people on here “stupid” and a “jack a$$”, but again, he never even claimed to have tried it him or herself. How do you submit a review without actually REVIEWING it? The author writes, and I quote, “Numerous web reviews from actual owners say yes, you can feel that your triceps have been given a workout afterwords. I don’t own a ShakeWeight….”

    I make no claims one way or the other, because I haven’t used it, and it could all be just a marketing ploy, but I think one should give something a try before they start making claims about whether it works or not. Without doing that, it gives this review article absolutely NO credibility!

    • JJ

      SB, I don’t own a shakeweight, not will I ever buy a shakeweight. However, due to my knowledge of what it takes to get a GOOD workout, I can tell you beyond a reasonable doubt that if what you are looking for is a GOOD workout, the shakeweight is not for you.

      Will it burn some calories – Yes
      Will it make your muscles burn – Yes (so will shaking a gallon of milk, book, or any other item that weighs the same). For that matter, if I all I do is flex my muscles really hard, they will burn after only a few seconds, but is that a good workout?
      Will is “tone” your muscles some – Yes
      Will it work any muscle in it’s entirety – NO! In order to work out your whole tricep/bicep/shoulder/peck, you need to work it through it’s full range of motion.
      Will you build strength – Maybe, but not useful strength. You may gain strength in the range of motion that you are “shaking” in, but will get little to no gain for other ranges of motion.

      In summary, I don’t need to buy this product to know what it can and can’t do. All you need is a basic knowledge of working out.

  • Jacob

    Okay well I bought the shake weight last night got it home tried it and wow yes it burns! My family members all tried it and couldn’t believe it. I didn’t really buy this for the muscle gain I bought it more for the calorie burn. I don’t care what anyone on here says if you know anything about your body you will know that any type of movement will burn calories. I chose to buy this item and try it out. Will it work for me idk. Will it work for your body only time can tell everyones body is different. So right now I am very impressed with my shake weight and know it will bring me results if I KEEP DOING IT. Thanks shake weight for the product

  • Randy W

    get in the gym fatties

  • Fur Reals

    I, like everyone else across the country, saw the shake weight on TV, laughed about it, and moved on with my life without thinking twice about the product. Until this month, that is.
    My roommate is a bodybuilder who bought the shake weight for sh*** and giggles and never really used it, as he already has a workout routine. I decided it would be fun to see if it actually worked, as I’ve been meaning to start working out more. I didn’t need to lose any fat, but was hoping to tone my upper body, and I can honestly say that after a week of using the product and the six minute workout plan (twice a day) that I am impressed. I would be lying if I said that this product did not work.
    Is it a replacement for a daily trip to the gym? No. Is it a convenient upper body workout that will tone your arms after a mere six seconds a day? You’re damn right it is.
    Recommended for those who want a quick, arm toning workout.

  • Jodie

    I BOUGHT IT ! I LOVE IT!

  • Erak

    Shake Weight works- I’ve been using it consistently for a month and my arms are getting toned. I’ve added it to my treadmilling, situps, and pushups routine, and am very pleased with results so far.

    It works- I won’t become a bodybuilder using it, but it is toning me up. Thumbs up to this great product.

  • Wow

    This is by far the most unhelpful source of information….article = FAIL, bashing on any positive results? Yeah…that’s not biased at all, also if you don’t own this product how can you write a review? “Omg this product isn’t a miracle and you have to do your other workouts as usual!! Don’t buy it!!” Really…

  • women…..

    This product works, and idc what bullshit you say. Agreed with Wow, yes it cant be the only thing you use but if added to your workout, i will loan u my house if it doesnt work. buy it before you give a review

  • Me

    I don’t own a shake weight, but I hate anything upper body, so anything that takes only a little amount of time sounds good to me. As far as will it work, I think that most people work out to make themselves feel good. So, if this product helps you to feel good about yourself, then so be it. If people are willing to spend their money for something that will make them happy then why be ugly to them about it? A review is for just that, to review. I see no point to getting on here and calling people names. Haven’t you ever heard “agree to disagree”?

  • Lola

    I own a shake weight and have been using it every day for a month along with my other cardio exercises. It really has been working for me, my arms are more toned and are looking better. I definitely would say this product works but I do agree you can’t expect dramatic results if its the only form of exercising you are doing.

  • Harriet

    If you almost fill a 2-liter bottle with water and shake it, the delayed hit does do more than a solid weight. That’s why I was looking at the shake-weight. But after reading some of the reviews, maybe I’ll wait ’till the furor is over, and the price goes down.

  • Jeff

    This is ridiculous. You can shake your arm really fast without any weight and feel that same “burn.” This is an isometric conraction that will not “sculpt” anything. If you are a sedintery person, then yes, you will get some results because you are not longer sitting on your can all day. But if you actually work out and use this contraption, it will not do a thing for you. The fitness world is a huge business that people look for new ways to make money…unfortunately, this is one of them. That’s all this is is a money maker. Where is the research other than people posting they like it and posting doctored and fake pictures? Just curious. I can show you results from training with weights and dumbbells. As much as I do not like machine training, you will get much better results from them and if you don’t, it’s because you are not using them correctly. Read up about how the body and muscles work and you will see that this product does not work for building muscle, “sculpting” muslces or burning body fat. By the way, “tone” refers to tension on the muscle by weight and has nothing to do with how a muscle actually looks. So that’s a dead give away that the people of this product and most of you using it are not educated in the field of strength training and physiology.

  • Hugo Fuguzev

    Before I bought the shake weight for men I worked out with dumbells for my biceps, shoulders, etc.. I’ve been working out with the shake weight for the past two weeks and stopped using the dumbells to see what the difference would be and I’ll say that the shake weight really does work if you work out with them with serious effort. I noticed an increase in definition almost immediately. I recently tried working out with the dumbells to see if there was any difference in strength and found that I had increased my “routine” workouts by at least fifteen percent in weight per dumbell per excercise. That’s an incredible increase for just two weeks of working out. I am not looking to get and doubt that the shake weights will give me “massive” biceps and shoulders but if you work out with them “seriously” and not just shake them “comfortably” they will definitely give you added strength, stamina and absolutely increase muscle mass in your arms, and shoulders. I have recently met amateur athletes in martial arts, basketball, golf, baseball, wrestling, etc., at the gym I work out at (I do a lot of core and leg workouts, etc. because I’m a martial artist myself) who are now using the shake weights in addition to their normal routines. No BS, and the cool thing is when you aren’t at the gym you can still conveniently work out with them. Be sure to “create” your own excercises with them. Don’t limit yourself to just the ones on the DVD.

  • Aaron

    I got a ShakeWeight for christmas and it’smaking my muscles work pretty hard so I think if your muscles are using energy to do work I would consider it a workout. It’s also pretty fun to use so just messing around with it when you’re bored can be pretty good. As long as you feel the burn you know your muscles are working and that’s what a workout is meant for.

  • Thingsonmysky

    It works….
    Not because it shakes(FAIL)
    But because its a weight……

  • Someone

    Maybe you should TRY it before you say its BS. It works!

  • Brendan

    To your comment about the car, although yes it may be true it is only an accessory it can still make the difference for instance buy a car with a crapy interior and people are less likely to take a ride, but buy a car with a nice interior and people wouldn’t mind riding in your car. So for the little money the shake weight costs its worth it if you cannot go to the gym on a regular basis or would rather just work out at home.

  • angie

    ok people on these comercial why is that they always show all ready built guys useing these products. that show how do we know is they work or not .

  • Matt

    I like it! I was given one for xmas. I work in a call centre and have to do alot of side by sides listening to calls. The shake weight is great and is something i can do while sitting. I have it at my desk and love giving it a shake. Lose weight dunno, but it has toned my arms, chest and caping my shoulders nicely.

  • Justin

    Personally I think this shake weight thing is worthless. Though I haven’t actually tried it myself, I guarantee while I’m using it, it would seem difficult. Still I have no confidence in its lasting results, if any. In my opinion most of those who say they see results are probably having a placebo effect. I suppose its appeal is that it is a portable and short workout. Okay, let me propose a portable, short, free and effective workout. All you need to do it is 6-minutes, any surface you can hang from and a plot of land large enough for you to lay in. Here it is:
    Do as many of each of these as you can for each minute.
    1 minute of Pull-ups
    1 minute of Sit-ups
    1 minute of Squats
    1 minute of Push-ups
    1 minute of Leg Raises
    1 minute of Lunges

    And whats the best part about this? You won’t just think you’re getting better, you’ll know. Because over time as you do it, you’ll be able to do more and more repetitions.

  • angela

    I bought a shake weight and started using it. The weight has caused pain in my right wrist. I do not recommend the weight. The repetitive motion causes a strain on the wrist. My wrist has hurt for about a week. If it isn’t better soon I will going to the doctor.

  • Dorie007

    I have been down in the dumps the past few days but what comic relief…some of you sure are funny. I’m going to sell your comments on ebay as the cure for depression. Finally a drug free way to a cure! I have not laughed this hard in weeks. Thank you :)

    p.s. Maybe if I had gotten the SW my boyfriend would not have broken up with me. Ha!

  • PhilinKY

    Actually I quite like my S/W!
    Out of shape and 50+ so I guess anything would be a plus but it does do what I want.
    Got it for Xmas and use it 3-4 times a week. Don’t have a lot of fat to lose but it HAS
    built up my arms, shoulders and chest. Probably not for you purists or gym monkeys but for a guy with little time or money to devote to a gym it does me just fine.
    If you fit in that category then you might find the S/W a perfect fit.

  • k….

    Thats so true Tami… it works!!

  • Chris

    I bought a shakeweight. I’ve been using it for awhile now. I’ve never been in bad shape, I’m just using it to tone up the arm and chest muscles I already have. For that purpose, I think it works just fine. But if you’re looking for a wonder-weight to cure all of your problems, you’re not going to find it. You won’t find it anywhere else either, so stop looking. It takes time, patience, and a good work ethic to transform a body. That’s all you really need. But, if you are like me and looking for a quick in-between to stay fit, give the shake-weight a shot. It’s not going to replace my gym routine, but it’s a nice change of pace every once in awhile.

  • Sami

    Hi, I have just ordered shakeweight for the 1st time so I will keep you updated. I have read many of you saying it is rubbish & ppl should just go to the gym. Well the reason I have ordered it is because I am in a wheelchair & cannot go to the gym as my legs don’t work!! Obviously as I am imobile the weight has crept on, I am waiting for hydrophysio so thought I could use this while seated.

    • Laura Williams

      I sense a little hostility. have you had a stroke yet?

    Come on people with negative posts. Just because people saying they like the shake weight doesn’t mean they work for the company. You guys are acting like this thing cost $500 bucks. To each his own. What works for others might not work for somebodysomebody else. So stop tripping. Yeah and it is just like a dumbell but its lighter and works your muscles quicker in a shorter amount of time

    it’s a joke. the postman left the package in front of my door… can you imagine??? Results : Came back from work, the package was open, the SW outside of the box… and when I tried to use it it’s shacking but just a little bit and I looked at the manuel and did everything and shacked as hard as I could and nothing. I believe the person who opened the package broke up or something like that. When I called the customer service they told me I could send it back (at my own expenses…) and they will send me a new one (that will be left again in front of apartment door… no jokes… ) since they said they don’t see a reason to ask for a signature…. Usually when I’m not at my apartment, the package stays at the post office… never ever happened to me before and I order every week something online…

    BAD PRODUCT
    BAD COSTUMER SERVICE
    VERY DISAPOINTED!!!

      if you want to look strong but be weak then sure, do a real workout like actual weights or do body weight, you want to look something your not body weght is perfect, you’ll be way stronger then you look, with this gimmik you’ll look stronger then you are

    this thing is a joke im sure, might make you look strong but take some guy who uses this 5 lb weight thing, to a guy who does REAL weight lifting who do you think is gonna win? the guy doing real weights obviously, even if the guy who use shake weight looks stronger.
    might be good if you only want to look strong but make a fool out of yourself when you try a weight lifting or psuhup or anything kind of competiton against one who does real weigth lifting or better yet body weight training, (in body weight training you are way stronger then you look) id rather that then look strong but really are not
