all ab belts, the Fast Abs uses EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation).
So instead of asking if the Fast Abs 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 Fast Abs 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 Fast Abs 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 Fast
Abs, 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.
Abs offers 6 exercise programs and 10 different resistance
settings, similiar to its rivals. Unfortunately, it's battery
life has been suggested to be quite short, compared to the
Ab Tronic which is purported to have the longest battery life,
with the Ab Energizer coming in at a close second.
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.
Again, the most popular of the three is definitely the Ab
Energizer. It's priced similarly to Fast Abs but it comes
with two exercise units allowing you to target more areas
