Slendertone System-Abs for Men claims to give you “stronger, firmer abs in 4 weeks”. But does it really work? I trialled the product for 6 weeks to find out and in this article I will be giving you my Slendertone review. In this review I will outline how Slendertone works, the pros, the cons and my overall summary.
HOW IT WORKS:
Slendertone System-Abs for Men is an electronic abdominal toning belt. It uses clinically proven electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) toning which sends signals between the pads of the belt. These signals then trigger the nerves that control your abdominal muscles to contract and relax. According to the packaging EMS technology has been used in hospitals for over 50 years to rehabilitate and strengthen muscles in patients.
1) IT WORKS:- After using Slendertone System-Abs for Men for 6 weeks my abs did feel harder and stronger than before I started using the belt. So if you are looking for an alternative stomach toning exercise to crunches or sit-ups Slendertone is definitely a viable option.
2) YOU CAN MULTI-TASK:- Unlike traditional stomach exercises where you have to focus all your efforts on performing the motions, Slendertone System-Abs for Men allows you to do other things at the same time. You can wear the belt whilst cooking, cleaning, watching TV or performing other day to day tasks which makes it a very useful tool if you do not have time for a specific abdominal workout.
1) IT DOES NOT BURN BODY FAT:- To get six pack abs you need to do two things; tone your abdominal muscles and burn enough body fat so that these toned abs are visible. Slendertone System-Abs for Men does the first of these but not the second. So if you are expecting to simply strap the belt on for 6 weeks and have a set of six pack abs at the end of it then you are going to be disappointed. Even when you are using the belt you still need to eat the right foods and exercise regularly so that you can burn the excess body fat and reveal the toned abs underneath.
2) IT IS EXPENSIVE:- Currently there are a number of Slendertone belts on the market. Slendertone System-Abs for Men currently retails at £119.99 but even the cheapest model costs £69.99. On top of this the gel pads that come with the belt need to be replaced every 6 weeks at a cost of £11.99 per pack. So if you are looking for a cheap piece of exercise equipment this belt is definitely not it.
Overall, Slendertone System-Abs for Men is a great alternative tool for strengthening and toning your abs. If you lead a healthy lifestyle then it is definitely a product worth considering. However, it is not a magic piece of kit. You still need to do the hard work and lower your body fat levels.
