Slendertone (and similar) ab belts

Are these worth it? I have read many reviews on sites that sell them but expect most of the reviews are written by the company that make them to make people purchase. Am I being paranoid? Are they any good? Are they the new electric can opener and be found at every carboot in 2013?

  • I have some miracle pills you can use, they are very expensive but I'm prepared to sell, and to avoid any problems they are disguised as Aspirin.

  • They're a waste of money.

    abs are 90% diet. you need 12% or less bodyfat to see them. Eat healthily, control your calorie intake and exercise.

    To develop the muscles do crunches.

    Or really clever lighting.  Mine always look better in the gym!

  • I haven't used it for ages now, but I have one of the ones with wires and pads you can stick on whatever bits you want to work. Instead of the 130 quid it should have cost new, I got it for a tenner on eBay. They won't make you thinner or give you more defined muscles and they're not a magic shortcut but they can be useful for rehab and strengthening. And for 'lazy' workouts. Ahem...

    When I was working really long hours and was sleep deprived and short of time, I often used to skip my usual ab routine and instead go for an hours sleep with the pads stuck on and the machine turned up quite high. I got very good at sleeping through a thousand electrical crunches and it definitely did improve the strength of my abs.

  • I have one and haven't used it for ages but I found with a lot of use it did make a small difference but once I stopped using it the difference quickly disappeared! 


    I agree with the above, eat better and exercise more and spend the money on something you will actually enjoy! image

    It won't give you abs like the folks on the box that is for sure!!!image

  • They're stupid.  30 minutes with ST is the same as x crunches,which will only take 10 minutes.  Anyone who buys one thinking they'll end up with attractive abs. is a tool.
