Shake Weight resembles a dumbbell but has springs on both sides. You don’t lift it but shake it with one hand or both. The shaking and holding it in position is what’s supposed to work your muscles. You can use this product to work all the muscles groups in your upper body. The Shake Weight was originally marketed to women with the claim that using it can help you get long and lean muscle tone and not bulky ones. Just what women desire. Since then, a men’s version has also been released.
Shake Weight is supposed to work with something called Dynamic Inertia, a term that I have failed to find any information about, and since it has been trademarked to the company is apparently something that was given a name for this product.
The idea is that your muscles are worked due to the resistance of the shaking weight and how you hold it in position.
