This is a single item, a shake weight. The idea is that there are springs at either end, and the total weight moves as you shake it. The manufacturers assert that this makes the muscles work more efficiently. The pack also comes with a DVD, which has introductions to use the shake weight, followed by a 6 minute work out.
The action of using the shake weight has inspired a degree of comedy. I do recommend checking out Ellen deGeneres review online. I couldn't even keep a straight face the first time I watched the DVD which came with the shake weight, so I certainly didn't manage it watching Ellen's review... Lets just say, this is one of those exercise devices with comic potential.
But does it work? I am not the kind of person who has wonderfully toned, or strong, arms. But I found using the weight, following the DVD, remarkably easy, and didn't have any muscle pain the following day. I can't really see why this would be any better to using an ordinary weight. That said, if you are looking for something a bit different, to inspire you to deal with arm flab - then this might be what you need.
