No idea as I've never seen/used one (off to Google now) but have you tried planks? They strengthen the stomach muscles.

I'm up to 45 shakey seconds and it is getting difficult but you can feel it doing something!
 
#9
I was just thinking about this last night!

I will say the vibro-plate things DO work (I wouldnt solely rely on them though) I use it for my bum too- Ive got a lot of junk in the trunk. I am going to start the 30 day plank AND squat challenge today too.x.
 
#10
I managed to do the 20 seconds! A bit shaky though.. So tempted to get the belt as reviews look good and also I am going to the gym at least once a week if I can and going on my wii fit.
 
#11
Anyone used a power hoop as well? X

I am SO having a go at this although with my baby belly there is a chance it may reach the floor and provide me with a 'pivot' point.

I will end up like a seesaw

That made me chuckle! I'm doing it complete with post pregnancy baby belly too... I'm hoping these help get rid of it!

I need to do 1 minute today :eek:
