I L-O-V-E Ellen and just a few months ago she did a segment on the new women’s exercise equipment The Shake Weight… Ellen gives it the light comedy feel that it deserves!
Another piece of equipment that with just 6 minutes a do you can change your life… ummm no! It doesn’t raise your heart rate, so while you might actually tone your arms initially that’s not enough to burn fat so you can see the results.
AND… if you’ve been a regularly reader here at Lifting Revolution you know that the idea that weight training adds bulk is a bunch of bull crap. This is the kind of equipment that got me into this business… that gives false lies to women and makes it confusing for us to know what works and what doesn’t… but I will leave it up to you to make up your own opinion!
To really get the best results with your body, you need a total body workout. Get more info on exercise routines!
