all ab belts, the Ab Tronic uses EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation).
So instead of asking if the Ab Tronic works, maybe we should
be questioning whether EMS is as effective as it is portrayed
and a similar method called TENS, are used regularly by medical
professoinals and physiotherapists, in hospitals all over
the world. In light of this fact, we are aware that these
mthods work, and work well. The reason being that they do
exactly what they are designed to do, wich is to aid in the
rehabilitation and healing processes by inhibiting pain, reducing
swelling, and strengthening and toning specifically targeted
our main question is this... Can EMS, and what I mean by that
is, Can the Ab Tronic initiate weight loss?
it cannot, but what it can do is strengthen and tone abdominal
muscles, or any muscle group that you use it on. Just like
EMS strengthens and tones during rehabilitation.
take note that the advertising hype only mentions weight loss
claims in connection with a a healthy diet and cadio program.
The reason they do this is because EMS is a "passive
exercis" that burns very little calories and cannot make
you lose weight on its own.
the fact that the Ab Tronic will not make you lose weight
on its own, it is still a viable contender if you plan to
use it for strengthening and toning, rather than as a weight
loss tool. If you don't have the motivation to do traditional
sit ups, or to use the conventional ab machines, then the
Ab Tronic, or one of its competitors in the same category,
would be a good investment for you.
following is a brief summary to help you compare the Ab Tronic
to its two main competitors...
Top 3 Ab Belts
belts are either loved or hated. This is a fact.
top three ab belts, currently on the market, are the Ab Tronic,
Fast Abs, and the Ab Energizer. All include batteries and
lubricant gel, and all three of these machines, as similiar
as they are, also claim to produce similiar results.
of the three, the Ab Energizer receives the most positive
testimonials and appears to be the most popular. Fast Abs
has received the most negative criticisms, which inlcude,
appearing as a cheap product, uncomfortable when used, and
a very short battery life. It's also worthy to note that the
Ab Energizer also comes with two exercising units which enable
the user to work more than one muscle group at a time, and
on line can save you up to 10-20% off of the street or TV
cost. A well known on line retailer, like asontv.com, which
sells infomercial produts at the lowest possible price can
be found at...
