Hello everyone. Today I am going to be posting my feedback on the final week of the Slendertone 6 Week Plan. I actually finished last Sunday (4th July 2010) but I have been too busy to do this final post until now. So read on to find out how I got on…
Feedback on the Slendertone System-Abs Belt
This week I stuck to the following intensity levels on Slendertone System-Abs:
– Monday (Day 1):- 65.
– Tuesday (Day 2):- 75.
– Wednesday (Day 3):- 85.
– Thursday (Day 4):- 85.
– Friday (Day 5):- 90.
Overall, I found Monday to Thursday OK. I could feel the belt working my abs but it was not too strong for me. However, setting 90 on Friday was really tough and my muscles were quite sore on Saturday morning.
Feedback on my Exercise Routine
Since it was my final week on the Slendertone 6 Week Plan I really stepped up my cardio this week. I did my normal three day weights routine and also did 20 minutes cardio at the end of each session. On top of this I did two intense 40 minute runs on the treadmill. Overall, this was probably my best week in terms of cardio.
Feedback on my Diet
Just like with my exercise routine, since this was my final week of using the Slendertone System Abs belt I tightened up my diet even more. I cut out my pre-gym meal and also all the fruit that I normally snack on. On top of this I cut out all carbohydrates from my diet apart from the ones I would have at breakfast. So for breakfast I would have either oatmeal and fresh fruit or poached eggs on a whole grain bagel. For lunch I would have a homemade chicken salad. Then for tea I would have tuna with steamed vegetables, some chopped tomatoes and herbs. On the Sunday I did a full fast and did not eat any food. Whilst it was tough, I did manage to completely stick to this rigid diet and in the process reduced my overall caloric intake for the week.
Feedback on the appearance of my Abs
Since it was my final week of the Slendertone 6 Week Plan I have taken some new ‘after’ photos. You can view the ‘before’ photos in this post and the ‘after’ photos are below…
1) Centre Abs Photo after completing the Slendertone 6 Week Plan
2) Left Side Abs Photo after completing the Slendertone 6 Week Plan
3) Right Side Abs Photo after completing the Slendertone 6 Week Plan
Overall, I think the appearance of my abs has improved over the last 6 weeks. They also feel a lot stronger and firmer than they did before I started using Slendertone System Abs. Whilst there is still room for further improvement I definitely feel there has been a positive change.
Overall, I do think Slendertone System Abs has helped tone my stomach muscles over the last 6 weeks. Unfortunately, the belt does not help you burn body fat and personally I have found this to be the hardest part of the 6 week trial. Whilst I have managed to shed some fat from my stomach it has been very difficult to get rid of it all, even with the reduced caloric intake and increased cardio levels. This is not a criticism of Slendertone System Abs itself as the product does not claim to burn body fat. However, in order for your toned abdominal muscles to be visible you need to get rid of this stomach fat. If you can manage that then Slendertone System Abs can be a great tool for helping you get six pack abs. Just be aware that the belt will not burn the fat for you.
I am going to be posting a full Slendertone System Abs review in the next few days. In the meantime if anyone has any experience with the Slendertone 6 Week Plan or Slendertone System Abs in general I would love to hear how you found it…
