As regular readers of the Free Fitness Tips Blog probably know I am currently trialling the Slendertone 6 Week Plan. I finished my first week of the trial last Saturday so today I am going to be giving my feedback on week 1 of the Slendertone 6 Week Plan.
Feedback on the Slendertone System-Abs Belt
As I discussed in my last post using Slendertone System-Abs for the first time is a very strange sensation which I can best describe as strong tickling. In my first week I followed the recommendations in the Slendertone 6 Week Plan and used Slendertone System-Abs 5 times for a period of 25 minutes whilst gradually increasing the intensity each day. Below is a day by day breakdown of the levels I used:
– Tuesday (Day 1):- 35.
– Wednesday (Day 2):- 40.
– Thursday (Day 3):- 45.
– Friday (Day 4):- 45.
– Saturday (Day 5):- 60.
I found as the week went on I slowly got used to the feeling of using Slendertone System-Abs. As I increased the levels it got noticeably tougher and by the time I reached level 60 on Saturday I could feel my abs contracting very strongly. I also noticed that my abs felt a little tighter on the days after using Slendertone System-Abs.
Feedback on my Exercise Routine
Last week was a pretty poor for me in terms of exercise. I got to the gym 3 times and completed my weights routine but I did not do any cardiovascular exercise and I also did not manage to start the exercise routine that the Slendertone 6 Week Plan recommends. This was largely down to having a full week at work and then a busy bank holiday weekend where I was rarely at home. I have a lot less on this week so hopefully I will have a much more productive week in terms of exercise.
Feedback on my Diet
For the majority of the week my diet was very good and I ate mainly fresh, natural foods. However, as I said above during the bank holiday weekend I was rarely at home. Because of this I did not have time to prepare my meals in advance on Sunday and Monday so I had to grab my food on the go. This meant the food I ate was not always the healthiest. However, I have a much quieter weekend this week which means my diet should improve.
Feedback on the appearance of my Abs
Whilst my abs do feel tighter than they did prior to using Slendertone System-Abs I have not noticed any change in the physical appearance of my abs. However, it is only week 1 and there are a number of improvement I need to make to my diet and exercise routine during the coming weeks. So whilst there is no change in the appearance of my abs yet it is still early days.
Overall, after week 1 of the Slendertone 6 Week Plan my abs do look the same as they did before I started. However, they do feel tighter than they did prior to using Slendertone System-Abs. Also I did not have the best week in terms of diet or exercise. If I make improvement in these areas and continue to use the belt then I will hopefully start to see some noticeable changes in the appearance of my abs over the next few weeks. Only time will tell.
