Are All Ab Belts Scams?
The Flex Belt has been gaining huge popularity in the fitness arena for sometime now, especially over the last 2 years. Whilst there are many reviews on the Flex Belt one can’t help but think that it could all be a scam. So the question that many still ask is does the Flex Belt really work or are ab toning belts just scams?
One of the easiest ways to figure out whether the Flex Belt will work for you is to understand the core mechanism inside. What is the core mechanism that makes the Flex Belt what it is? It is EMS.
So Does The Flex Belt Work?
Give me 30 seconds and I will explain how it works.
The Flex Belt uses EMS which is ( electronic muscle stimulation ). EMS works by sending electronic pain free signals to your muscles telling them to contract. This is much like the human brain signaling a muscle to squeeze. So in a way it replaces the thought process.
EMS is not a new technology, in fact it has been widely used for well over two decades, most notably used for physical therapy in athletes who have injuries or are unable to perform their regular exercise routines, but do not want their muscles wasting away.
You will also find body builders using EMS while they are on ‘the road’ touring, because it can be difficult getting to a gym for workouts.
EMS has become more popular these days with products such as the Flex Belt, and the Flex Belt is the only ab toning belt that has been approved by the FDA.
However, the real beauty of EMS is that it can isolate muscle contractions, which means that it can contract a specific muscle group without having to invoking secondary muscles.
For example, to perform a sit-up, you would have to engage not only your abs, but also your neck and legs muscles. The Flex Belt will allow you to work just the abdominal area without having to use the neck or leg muscles at all. This is good news for people who have back, neck or leg injuries or find it difficult performing sit-ups. It is also good for people who want the benefits of sit-ups, but don’t want to do any. Furthermore, it works better when you are not doing anything, like reading a book, watching television, or surfing the internet.
Ok, so because the Flex Belt can isolate contractions to your mid section it leaves your other muscles free to go about your normal daily activities all the while working out your abs. Some people find it hard to visualize this, so try this. You can isolate and contract your own abs just by thinking about it. Yep, you don’t even have to do a sit-up. If you just think about squeezing your abs, I am sure you’ll have no problem squeezing them right now. Try it. Now hold that contraction for 10 seconds. Now stand up and try the same thing … walk around a little bit. Are you still able to squeeze your abs? Of course you are, however it takes a lot of thought and concentration to be able to this effectively to gain any real benefit. You’ll also notice that it lacks intensity, which is the reason why most people do sit-ups to workout there abs, because it is just a lot easier.
So this is where it gets interesting. The Flex Belt is specifically designed to contract and isolate the muscles in your core area. It easily fits under clothing which means you can use it in public and no one would be the wiser. This means that you can be getting a really great ab workout while driving to work, waiting for the bus, reading the newspaper, watching TV, waiting in traffic, listening to music, reading a book or even surfing the internet. You no longer have to schedule a specific time slot to getting a flatter, toned mid section, you can literally get a great ab workout anytime of the day. The best part about it is that you don’t even have to think about it.
The Flex Belt is virtually the closest thing you have to a ‘magic pill’ in my opinion, simply because it is so easy to use and you can use it virtually anytime of the day.
Is if you think the Flex Belt might fit into your daily routine then why not give it a go.
