Full Answer

The Shake Weight is a home exercise device in the form of a light dumbbell with weights that spring back and forth when shaken. The weight comes with a six-minute exercise DVD. The original Shake Weight was aimed primarily at women though more recently a men's Shake Weight has been introduced. Users on Amazon.com give the Shake Weight for women three and a half out of five stars, noting that the product improves arm strength and tone over time.

The Shake Weight review on WebMD notes that a six-minute workout is not enough time to adequately work muscles or burn fat. This review implies that the user is better off performing a traditional resistance workout with regular weights.
