    This might sound a daft question :p

    I use myfitnesspal to track my calories and exercise etc and I have an ab belt which is sposed to be scientifically proven to amount to doing 120 ab crunches in 20 minutes.

    Do you think I can get away with adding these "crunches" to my exercise diary on there? Maybe if I halve the time as I`m not actually doing 40 mins of sit ups lol

    Surely, My muscles are using the same energy in the "work out" as they would if I were doing them myself?? Or am I trying to kid myself :rolleyes::p

    I`m off to my first exercise/dance class tonight, Hope I don`t keel over!! haha

    Xx

    The trouble with slendertone is you are not working your muscles through their whole range, and not against resistance so it will never work your muscles like proper crunches.
