Video Monday - Shake Weight

You know I wouldn't believe this thing was real if I hadn't actually seen it in Target the other day! 



They now have a men's version also, but I can't imagine them needing any extra help with this type exercise.  BTW...the men's was not on the shelf at Target.



I had seen the really lame commercial for the women's once, but I never knew this was a manually powered piece of equipment!

I know the shake weight commercial is hilarious! I bought it for my boyfriend as a joke. But after the initial hilarity of it subsided, he started using it. And let me tell you, it is a great little workout gadget! He looks more cut. I was so impressed, i went online to their website and order one for myself. Now we shake weight it during commercial breaks. haha it's our fun little game. And if the shake weight commercial is actually on...we double time it. :} its funny but you should check it out. it really works. www.buyshakeweight.com
