Ab belts are comfortable to wear. They can be used during a workout or as you go along your day. The fact that they run on batteries makes them convenient to use since you will not have to worry about dealing with wires.
Ab belts offer a simple way to workout the abdominal muscles. By delivering a tiny electric charge around the area, the muscles are forced to contact and relax hundreds of times. This simulated the contraction and relaxation of muscles when doing exercises such as sit ups only this time, you will not have to use too much effort and it will not result in pain afterwards.
This is an excellent way to relax after a long and strenuous day. Ab belts have been shown to improve the mood by stimulating the production of the feel-good hormone serotonin.
These belts also help to burn calories and unwanted fat around the abdomen. What’s more blood circulation to the area is improved.
One of the main disadvantage of Ab belts is that the electrical charge tends to be affected by more fat around the abdomen making it more difficult to reach the muscles underneath.
Second even while Ab belts may help in burning calories, this will take a very long time compared to if you we hitting the gym and doing crunches.
Some Ab belts have also resulted in the skin bruising.
