Shake Weight

Millions have watched the Shake Weight infomercial on YouTube, Ellen DeGeneres featured it on her talk show, and it's even a Saturday Night Live spoof—but not because of its ability to tone in just six minutes a day. The ad is just so silly!

Experts say the spring-loaded weights on each end of the 5-pound dumbbell (or the 2.5-pound one for women) require 300% more effort than lifting regular weights.

While that could be true, even the researcher who led the study on Shake Weight’s effectiveness said he wouldn’t expect it to replace a full exercise regime.
