Advantages: It is a good way to lose pounds but only the £ variety
Disadvantages: It desnt work
I saw an advert on late night TV for one of these Ab Belts, and even as I watched these buff, toned people prancing about, I knew it was all down to hard work and actual exercise rather than some belt that is meant to tone them. Saying that, I still thought I would give it a go because, well, you never know unless you try it yourself and find out do you?
It is an attractive purple belt that attaches to you using Velcro so it will fit most size people. It also comes with conductive gel, which you must use, if you don't it is very painful I can vouch for that. You have a choice of three settings, low, medium and high. The low is not worth bothering with, the medium is ok and bearable, high is a little intense 15 minutes (which is the recommended time to use it) is about all I could cope with though. I did use the high level as I thought, getting a six pack while I am washing up or watching tv, a little pain is the least I could do. I wouldn't really say it was painful per say, feeling your muscles tense and having no control I weird to say the least. It is meant to be like doing 100 sit up, although it may have been similar, I can do 100 sit ups and this was nothing like that at all.
I have used this and have had no results to report. My stomach is no more toned than I was before I started. Although the muscles may contract, it doesn't do anything else, no matter how long or how many times you use it. I used a similar machine (tens machine) when I had my son, that was also a waste of time and didn't help in that situation either. The only way to guarantee a six pack and toned muscles, is the actually do some proper exercise and stop expecting miracles.
Summary: Dont waste your money
