    **** No!!! Don't waste your money. I have had about 3 friends use em. Nothing. They are much better vibrators for other things than for muscle growth.

    Know why you don't see those informercials on TV anymore? The company got sued for selling a bad product because it was scientifically proven not to work.

    well accually ive been told by a gym teacher that they do work, but just by using them you arent gonna have the stomach you always dreamed of, they do tighten the abbs but you still have fat covering them, just like doin abb work you need to lose the fat or abbs wont show. So all these people that buy these and sit at home all day they arent really gonna see any result..but say you do cardio while wearing one of these it should work decently. I rather stick to old fashion abb training though.

    This is true didn't you see the news report. They had to return everybody's money.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Yes, they sort of stretched the truth a bit on those machines!

    in a word no. Electronical stimulation really doesn't build muscle...but it can help maintain it during times of injury...that's where the real use of those machines lie.

    those things do some moderate work for you, if u use one for long enough then the electrical pulses that run through yur muscles to make them contract damage the tendons. so when u actually do it noramlly it doesnt work either because the muscle is ****ed !!!!!!!!!

    seriously gettin one of them will do you more harm than good.

    I'm sure they don't use actual ab belts off the adverts - something tells me they use more professional versions - I can't see Totti or Beckham sitting in their state of the art club gyms with ab belts on!
