like a dumbbell with accordion-like shocks on each end,
after reading that a minute of jiggling it is equivalent to
120 reps of traditional dumbbell exercises. I popped in the
DVD to learn the technique; basically, pretend you’re shaking
a martini. I rattled through two sets of eight reps of six exer-
cises (biceps curls, triceps extensions and more). Between
the moves, I did a set of ‘active rest’ (lifting and lowering
without the James Bond–like action). Three minutes in,
the 2.5-pound weight started to feel heavy. My breath
quickened, and the jiggling forced me to engage my core,
arms and back. When I was finished, my upper body felt
ablaze. I’m a believer—somebody shake me.”
