Six Pack Shortcuts
Can this simple black belly blasting belt give you the chiseled six pack of your dreams or is it a scam? Aaron Marino of alpha m. was contacted by Flex Belt to give a review. He has seen ab toning super products for years. He has never tried to them because he's chalked them up to BS. This is Alpha's chance to take it for a test drive to see if his assumptions are correct or if he's been missing out.  There were no strings attached!

About EMS Systems

There have been a ton EMS systems (Electric Muscle Stimulator) ranging from therapy to rehab situations. An electrode is connected to the muscle to give it juice and cause it to contract. Over the years, the systems got in trouble with the FDA: the products didn't stimulate a *hot turd* and were being sold as a weight loss, side reducing wonder product. The Flex Belt got FDA clearance for ab toning, firming, and strengthening.

How it works

Essentially, you have an adjustable belt, electrodes, replaceable pads, and a battery pack. After putting it on, set the program (1 -10) and increase the intensity levels (1 -150). Alpha started feeling it on program 5 / intensity 30. He starts getting ballsy from there-- he cranks it up. Contractions last 2 seconds with relaxation for 5 seconds for 30 minutes. He used it for 1 week and has been really sore (mainly his obliques).

Does the belt work? Absolutely.

The muscle engages and contracts causing toning and firming. Your abs will  strengthened and toned. To get to see your abs, however, you need a healthy diet with cardio to get rid of your layer of fat.It's not a shortcut; it's something to add. It would be great to supplement to an ab workout in the gym. Flex Belt is a great product, and he's glad Flex Belt contacted him!
