Hello everyone. I’ve just completed week 2 of the Slendertone 6 Week Plan. Below is a discussion of how I got along.
Feedback on the Slendertone System-Abs Belt
I found that I was a lot more used to the sensation of using Slendertone System-Abs this week. It still feels odd when I start the program initially but after about 5 minutes I notice the belt much less and can concentrate on other things as it works away.
This week I increased the intensity to the recommended levels listed below:
– Monday (Day 1):- 60.
– Tuesday (Day 2):- 50.
– Wednesday (Day 3):- 65.
– Thursday (Day 4):- 65.
– Friday (Day 5):- 70.
I found that the start of the week was not too bad and I was pretty comfortable on levels 60 and 50. However, Wednesday to Friday was a different story. Level 65 is very tough and I felt my abs tightening very strongly. Level 70 is almost painful and really forces your abs to tighten up.
Feedback on my Exercise Routine
This week my exercise routine was much better. I managed to get to the gym 3 times and do my weights routine. I also managed to complete the 2 exercise sessions that are recommended as part of the Slendertone 6 Week Plan. I will be posting more about these in a future post but they are basically mini-circuit training sessions and give you a good cardiovascular workout.
Feedback on my Diet
Overall, my diet was very good this week. I had a chinese takeaway and a bag of crisps over the weekend but other than that I stuck to mainly fresh natural foods. For breakfast I had either oatmeal or a whole grain bagel with poached eggs. Then for lunch I had a homemade chicken salad. Before going to the gym I would have a homemade tuna salad. Then after finishing the gym I would cook a meat and vegetable based dish making sure it was loaded with fibre rich vegetables.
Feedback on the appearance of my Abs
Currently there is still no change in the appearance of my abs. However, on Saturday morning (after completing a Slendertone System-Abs session on level 70 the night before) my abs really felt like they had been worked hard. My muscles were sore and my stomach was tight. In fact it was a very similar feeling to the one you get after doing a particularly intense abs session at the gym.
After my second week of using Slendertone System-Abs I still did not see any change in the appearance of my abs. However, they did feel like they were being worked much harder by the end of the week. This week I am planning to step up my cardio routine significantly and do a lot more jogging whilst also maintaining a healthy diet. Hopefully, this will burn some additional body fat and let me start seeing some definition around my stomach.
