The Shake Weight, Biggest Bogus Fitness Scam Ever

The Shake Weight, Biggest Bogus Fitness Scam Ever

I will attempt to seriously measure the validity of the shake weights fitness claims.

  1. The shake weight will give you sculpted arms and shoulders FALSE!!! : Muscles require a full range of motion to grow and become stronger. The shakeweights claims of “dynamic inertia” are a laughable joked and insult all scientific evidence of muscle building we have. The models in these ads picked up a shakeweight for the first time in their lives at the shoot.
  2. The shake weight will boost your metabolism and help you lose weight. FALSE!!!!!! The muscles of the arms and shoulders are too small to provide any metabolic boost even if you were working them through their full range of motion. The calories you burn doing this for an hour might come around to about two to five calories. You will most likely consume several hundred calories as a “reward” for yourself after your “6” minute shake weight workout and thus get even fatter.
  3. The shake weight will give women longer slimmer muscles where as weight training will get you bulky. FALSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Getting “bulky” is not something that ever happens by accident, even if you are man with amazing genetics, on steroids, lifting super heavy weights and eating everything in sight, getting bulky is still the hardest thing to do in all of fitness. They are just preying on a myth to fool women. The slap in the face to your intelligence is how the shake weight commercial for women says it won’t get you bulky but the commercial for men says it will get you bulky.

The makers of this product provide no scientific evidence at all. Others on the net have reviewed this worthless product and we all agree it is just a waste of your time, money and will most likely get you fatter.

The shake weight is a scam !

It does not work at all! No way! This will only set you back because it keeps you from the truth and the right mindset. Forget this worthless product. The guy who started this is now a rich fat dude. Those that bought it, accept that the industry preyed on your ignorance and move on.

Was a fat kid and major geek.. still am a geek, but now I have learned the truth about health and it is pretty much the exact opposite of what your doctor will tell you it is. Time to go old school and level up our health by focusing on gaining not losing. Gaining strength, knowledge and confidence. The weight loss will come easily.
