Simple and very effective solution to that problem guys.
Use the largest toggle bolts possible and you can put as much weight as you want on those shelves as long as the attachment point on the back of the shelf is sturdy.
I'd probably add a steel washer to the bolt head for more surface area at the attachment point if there's room.
