So it’s been a bit more then a week since I posted my last results update. I only got 3 sessions in with The Flex Belt over the past 7 days but I’ve upped my intensity level again to be running at 80. I have to say that at this level it’s really buzzing and the flex on my abs is quite intense. I’ve started to focus on flexing myself as well when the EMS kicks in from The Flex Belt. My assumption is that by flexing and then the increased EMS hitting my muscles I’ll improve tone and strength even more dramatically.
This week was the first week I really noticed a big difference in the shots I’ve been posting. The upper abdominals I’m finding are really starting to become defined.
A few other points to note from this week:
If you read my post on The Flex Belt Gel Pads then you may have noticed that when I installed my first set of gel pads I didn’t hold onto the plastic pieces that you’re supposed to hold onto (it says to keep them in the manual I overlooked that part for some reason). The new set I installed I’ve kept those small plastic pieces this time and I have to say that the Gel Pads are in way better shape. The first round of gel pads lasted for about a month, but I wasn’t using the belt consistently. I think I’ll get about twice as long out of this second set and the gel pads are maintaining their moisture levels a lot better.
I had to charge my Flex Belt for the second time only this week. I am really amazed at the battery life of this thing. I had noticed that the LCD display showed me I was on only one bar of battery left for what seemed like the last two weeks, but it just kept on kicking. Today it finally gave up the ghost and ran out of juice. I’m wondering if this affected the intensity I felt from the EMS coming from the belt. I guess I’ll find out tomorrow when I plug in the freshly charged battery and see how things go.
Something I’ve noticed is that the little bit of belly fat that hangs out right above the waist is friggin tough to get rid of. I’ve been trying to drink more water and following a consistent diet so hoping this comes through. Also am still running 4 or so days a week. I’m going to keep on pushing with consistent Flex Belt use 5 or so days the next week, and I’ll post my next update then!
