The Shake Weight is a modified dumbbell that oscillates, purportedly increasing the effects of exercise. As a result of the perceived sexually suggestive nature of the product, infomercial clips of the exercise device have gone viral. A 2011 study in Consumer Reports states that for the chest, shoulder and triceps, the Shake Weight's exercises are inferior to conventional exercises that target the individual muscles. For the biceps, the results were similar. Additionally, the report found that the Shake Weight routines burned fewer calories than walking at 3 mph.

  • Der Shake Weight ist eine modifizierte Hantel, die vor allem für den Muskelaufbau in den Oberarmen konzipiert wurde. Da die Anwendung des Trainingsgerätes stark an eine sexuelle Handlung erinnert, verbreiteten sich die Präsentationsvideos sehr schnell. Mittlerweile haben sich auch schon namhafte Fernsehsendungen mit dem Shake Weight befasst. (de)
