Does Shake Weight Work? Apparently It Does!

Does the Shake Weight Dumbbell really work?

Like many of you I've seen the Shake Weight on TV and thought it looked a bit silly but the commercials and infomercials haven't gone away which made me wonder if it actually works.
After some digging it turns out the Shake Weight isn't a gimmick. The Shake Weight is a good exerciser.

From what I could figure out, it's not really good for building big muscles but it is good for upper body toning.

That makes sense. When you want to bulk up you use heavy weights and few reps but if you want to tone your muscles you use a smaller weight and do more reps. Well the 6 minute Shake Weight video exercise routine gives you a large amount of reps with relatively low weight. 5.3 lbs for men and 3.1 lbs for women.
