TONED TUMMY TIPS? Crunches/Slendertone/ Homefront slim Pro-V
I am a regular exerciser who runs or visits the gym at least 5 times a week and I am very near my "weight loss goal" to be honest it is more like a body/fitness goal now. Taking up running really helped me shed the extra pounds I had and did wonders for my general fitness. I have been boxing to help tone up my arms and mix up the cardio I am doing along with a few other classes at the gym and trying to persevere with the 30 Day Shred at home with some hand weights.
Although I would like to tone up everywhere, my stomach is the first port of call.
I do abs work probably 3 times a week, once during a gym class, once or twice as part of 30DS and perhaps one other 5-10min session off the back of a run. This could be a mix of crunches/bicycle things and planks.
Anyway to cut to the chase and please don't hate me for posting this in here- I know its definitely not strictly exercise- I just bought a Homefront Slim Pro-V Advanced Unisex Abdominal Abs Toning Belt from amazon for £25.99.
Now, I've never used a toning belt or anything before, as to be honest a) I am scared of eletrocuting myself and b) I simply thought they were too good to be true and the only way to a decent tum is diet and exercise.
However- the reviews were pretty positive, it seemed a really good price, and now I am getting lower and lower in weight I feel the layer of blubber in front of my (so called) abs is melting away.
Sooooooooooooooooo has anyone got any tips for tummies? Anyone tried a toning belt before?
Any thoughts on this???
So my belt arrived and I used it for the first time last night.
I went to level 7 (of 40) and it wasn't painful at all. I think I will do at least level 10 this evening.
Going to post progress pics every week. I'll do the starter this eve hopefully!
Surely they are just a gimmick, nothing beats hard work and if you are already doing ab work this must be enough from what you say you are doing. What exact exercises are you doing? i can feel the definition on my abs its just ive lost 15st this year so there is no way unless i have surgery that i will see em lol as i have loose skin but i can feel them and there pretty rock hard.
I get all my ab work exercises from a book called "the big book of abs"
