The AbTronic is another “miracle ab gadget” being peddled via T.V. infomercials, promising fabulous abs through the use of an electronic muscle stimulation belt. You can adjust the belt from low to high, but regardless of what setting you use, you’re not likely to see much in the way of results from the AbTronic.
The AbTronic targets people who are looking for fast results with little or no effort. If you’re not going to put effort into getting in shape, then you’ll honestly never see results. As always, the people in the infomercial are in excellent shape, but they certainly did not get that way by using an ab belt.
The product promises that this belt will help you lose inches in your mid section by using it for just 10 minutes per day. They claim that wearing this belt for 10 minutes will get you the same results as doing 600 sit-ups.
Even if the claims were true (which they’re not), doing 600 sit-ups daily will still not get you the results you’re looking for without adding a cardio routine with a healthy diet.
In my opinion, it’s unethical for a company to charge $70 for something that simply won’t produce the type of results advertised. Bottom line — if you want results, you’ll need to take off the AbTronic belt and get up off the couch. The inches are not going to disappear from your midsection while you catch up on re-runs of Roseanne.
The first step to getting in shape is to change your diet. Stop eating fast and processed foods and start eating lean meats, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy. Once your diet is changed, you’ll need to add a fat-burning cardio routine. This can be something like walking, jogging, jump roping, or jumping jacks.
Since you’ll be burning fat and eating better, you’ll start to see those six pack abs when you add abdominal and core strengthening exercises like crunches.
The final verdict on the AbTronic? Save your money.
