Well it has been 10 weeks since I got sent the Slendertone to review.
I firstly must admit to struggling to stick to the 5-7 days usage, not because of it being difficult to stick to just because of sheer crapness on my behalf. I've been much more likely to use it 3-4 times a week.
I have managed to increase my sessions from starting at Settings 1 Level 40 to Settings 2 Level 80 which I never thought possible when I first started. In fact I would have thought that would have shot me half way across the room.
I had a c-section with Tabitha and have since really noticed the damage that it did to my stomach muscles. It is a savage task the doctors carry out, cutting through the stomach muscle. They are one of our thickest muscles and it is a longtime in re fusing together after the operation. Building it back up to its previous condition is a long slog I have found.
I have been advised my my gym instructors to work my core muscles to help rebuild the strength but I have noticed the most improvement since using the Slendertone. It has helped me carry out more repetitions of exercises when I am at the gym and also given me a flatter looking tummy.
So am I working a totally flat stomach with six pack? Well no not quite, but my jeans belt is two holes farther back and I have lost 1.5 inches from around my waist.
I will be sticking at using the belt, I can't see why I won't always use it now I have one.
I think its the watching your stomach contract and release during the waves of electrical current that makes you realise how intense they are, recreating that tension with exercise is near on impossible.
Using the belt alongside a healthy eating diet and regular exercise has to be the perfect answer to a flatter tummy.
