Wii Weights Will Enhance Your Workout

Posted by Sammy Barker

A couple of weeks ago I was genuinely going to do a test for NintendoLife.com based around how fit you can get from playing the Wii. I was not the only one to notice an increase in the size of my biceps.

Unfortunately some American blogger had already beaten me to the idea and recorded himself losing a total of 9lbs just from playing the Wii daily.

While we all wait for a string of fitness games to be released (c'mon it's inevitable, I can see it now: "Jade Goody's Wonderfully Wacist [gettit?] Wii Workout") an inventor has prepared himself for the onslaught of fitness fanatics that are readying themselves to jump on the Wii bandwagon.

Two prototype Wii Weights have been developed of which strap on to your wrists for when playing Wii games, hence strengthening your wrist and arm muscles.

These weights are still only prototypes and the original inventor is awaiting interest from investors. On saying that, I reckon we can expect them in the shops pretty soon.

Haha geez, the Wii is being turned into even more of a gimmick than it was originally!

The sad part is, its actually not a bad idea... there are far too many fat "PlayStation Generation" kids around these days.
