What every best has:
Quite a few owners reviewing the Shake Weight for Men at Amazon.com confirm that using it for brief workouts does give muscles a pumped, burning sensation right away. However, Cipriano -- in agreement with several other exercise experts -- recommends a regular weightlifting program for better results overall. A traditional and more successful approach to building and strengthening muscles would gradually increase the weight far beyond five pounds. The bottom line: The Shake Weight for Men might give your arms some minor toning but don't expect miracles.
We found three reviews of the Shake Weight for Men based on personal tests by the authors. Chris Woolston's review at the Los Angeles Times tops our list, because it includes information from exercise experts as well. The review at ColumbusAlive.com, a weekly entertainment publication for Columbus, Ohio, discusses both the Shake Weight and the workout featured in the included DVD. A review at Wired specifies the product's pros and cons. An article by Johann Verheem at Inc. magazine is also on hands-on testing. We found skeptical reviews of both the men's and women's versions at WalletPop.com, WorldOfDiets.com and HealthAndFitnessAdvice.com, plus ratings and comments from about 30 owners at Amazon.com.
