Posts tagged ‘Slendertone System Abs’
I used the Slendertone system abs over the weekend a total of 5 days this week. I haven’t noticed anything like when I used it last time. Last time i was doing about 2 hours a day – sitting at my desk is the easiest way it seems.
Do other people use Slendertone at work ?
Can’t quite put my finger on it,but i think part of it is me not being organised and charging up the belt. so when think, put on the belt….oh but haven’t plugged it in to charge it, that’s when it all falls down
What i need is a proper routine, and have begun to put it into place now…
I have been a bit bad and not used the Slendertone System Abs for the last few days. I managed to get the level back up to 7 – I find 40 minutes a much better work out and the reps are more intense. I feel this is better by far. I am currently at 85 on the power level and I find this quite comfortable and I am aiming to do 80 minutes to make up for being a bit slack. I am not sure it works like this but if anyone has any feedback or motivational ideas that would be great! Thanks!
I’ll let you know I’m getting on with my progress with Slendertone
I had used a Slendertone previously and have started on level 3 at 70. I am using it at my desk and I can feel my muscles being tensed every 4 or 5 seconds.
My current weight is 13 stone and I am 6’2. I cycle to work about once a week and do quite abit of walking.
I would like to get some definition and lose a bit of weight from my stomach.
Well, full of good intentions, I charged up my Slendertone, put it on, mucked up the settings, took it off, then put it on again…thankfully, this time it worked.
I wore it whilst doing some housework, and didn’t really notice I was wearing it.
The second time I wore it, it was the same, although, a couple of hours later I felt a metallic taste in my mouth, similar to that I’ve felt when having to hold an electric rod during facials. (there is probably a proper word for this, but bear with me).
Since then, my life has been somewhat chaotic, so I havent put the belt on for two days, despite my best intentions. However, this weekend, I intend to get back on track
Still using the Slendertone belt on a regular basis and now on the max power setting 99. I am swapping around on the programmes as number 7 gives a 40 minute work out whereas the others are 30 minutes but the patterns and rhythms change. The battery has lasted well and only just had to recharge it again. Although I thought the pads were wearing they are still okay for now.
I can feel and see a difference and the muscles feel stronger and tighter. I have also just started the “plank” – I have heard of this before but was listening to Chris Evans, good music and chat to drive home to, and he had a guest who said this was the best exercise for abs. so doing that now as well. Only a few more weeks to some sunshine in the Red Sea, weather here is really naff and quite depressing but good for my very green grass.
I can see and feel a difference now, the muscles are tighter and stronger although perhaps not as visible. I am still using the Slendertone belt and changing around the programmes and upping the level to almost the max. I am still amazed at the reaction each time the “wave” of contraction approaches and how the muscle react. I guess it does get a little addictive to experience the reaction.
I did see, briefly, the new advert on the televison the other day for Slendertone. The karate is going well and Kyusho training, having a stronger abdomen is good to fend off some of the attacks although strong muscles are not always an advantage as they can make some of the techniques more painful. The mind is a powerful tool where visualisation, colours, sounds, yin and yang, time of the day, and stances can all make a big difference to a particular technique. Only a few more weeks to our holiday in the sun and swimming /snorkeling in the Red Sea.

Karate Kids progress with Slendertone Abs Belt- “By the time we go on holiday I should have that six pack”
Still using the Slendertone belt on a daily basis with the two suggested rest days, actually wearing this as I type which is a bit strange as it is quite a violent reaction as all of the muscles contract and relax in rhythm. I believe the toning belt is working as the stomach muscles do feel stronger and tighter. It was nice at the weekend to sit in the garden and enjoy the sun whilst the belt did a work out. I did find though there was a little bit of discomfort. I did think again that the pads were wearing out but it may have been due to some extra moisture on the skin whilst sitting in the sun. The battery lasted well again and only just recharged it. By the time we go on holiday I should have that six pack and a bit of a tan to go with it if the weather holds out.

Another week whizzed by, continuing to use the Slendertone belt and increasing the intensity. I have moved up to programme 7 that gives a 40 minute workout which is less intense than programme 6 but say is for duration training. I will probably alternate between the two and try some of the lower ones.
I did feel some tingling down my left leg and must have had the belt in the wrong position to start with or maybe the pads are beginning to wear already after 10 sessions?
The stomach muscles certainly are working whilst using the belt but also the back and side muscles are noticeable. I am not sure if any results are seen as yet but I did a workout on my total gym yesterday and one particular exercise I do that involves the abs was a lot easier.
A week has gone past already and 5 sessions completed on the Slendertone system-abs. The Slendertone system is easy to use and no problem allowing you to continue any normal chores or sit in front of the telly. I have noticed the contractions appear more intense whilst sitting down rather than standing.
I thought I may have overdone things too soon as I was unwell on Saturday with a light head and stomach pains but I now believe this was a 24-hour bug and not the machine. I started back on the programme so I only had the two rest days as planned. I haven’t noticed any real difference so far but have stepped up to programme 6 that gives a longer and different workout that I have so far found better and more comfortable. The battery lasted for 6 sessions before recharging was required. I am still trying to increase the intensity but haven’t ventured over 50 as yet as the contractions are very strong and causes a little back-ache. I am guessing here that if you already have stronger muscles that the contractions will be stronger and if you have weaker muscles the user will require a higher input to get the same results. Does anyone know if this is the case?
Not sure how long the Slendertone pads might last for as they are very sticky and I have to be careful when peeling them off my skin after a session.
No pain no gain, here’s to the six pack!
