The Ab Belt by Sport-Elec helps stimulate the muscles in your abs to tone and shape them. Simply put the AB Belt on as you sit and watch TV, work, walk around the house, do chores or virtually anything else. This product works as a “core sculpting” system and will help you tone and define your muscles without having to do any crunches or other traditional ab workout routines.
While the Ab Belt is strapped to your mid-section it sends electric pulses that cause your muscles to contract and the manufacturer claims that this will have the same effects on your abs as would sit-ups or crunches. In fact, some research showed that the Ab Belt actually yielded some pretty good results.
But the general consensus within the medical community is that the Ab Belt may help define your muscles but it will not burn the fat around them. And in order to see your abs you need to burn off the fat. So if you already have a low body fat, the Ab Belt may help give your midsection greater definition instead of a “flat stomach”. On the other hand if you are looking to lose weight, this product isn’t for you.
Although the Ab Belt is advertised to be within the weight loss market, it actually will not burn the calories and fat you need to reveal your abdominal muscles. But if you are currently on a diet or exercise program, this may be a good addition to start defining your abs so when you do lose the weight, you will have an awesome 6-8 pack underneath!
