Slendertone uses electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, which emits pulses to the nerves to contract the abdominal muscles. This imitates core and ab exercises like planks, sit-ups, stomach crunches and other bodyweight workouts.
Slendertone works the rectus abdominis (also known as the ‘six pack’) and inner and outer obliques, but, unlike most ab machines on the market, our ab trainers also activate your deep, difficult to tone transversus abdominis.
The transversus abdominis muscle is responsible for a firmer and flatter stomach, improved posture (especially if you experience back pain or work at a desk) and enhanced pelvic stability (which assists balance and control in everyday life and activities like yoga and Pilates). With a Slendertone ab toner it’s much easier to engage, strengthen and train this essential abdominal muscle.
To give your core and abs an even more intense session, we recommend using your Slendertone belt to compliment walking, abs exercises, bodyweight circuits, core training and yoga and Pilates classes. You can even squeeze in an abs training session when you’re walking the dog or sitting at your desk.
