Flex Belt Results – Update Week 3

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.

Starting to see some good definition in the upper abdominals.

Flex Belt Results Week 3

I've bumped my intensity level up to 80 now on my workouts this week.

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!

Hi! Just wondering if you have any updated results on the flex belt after week 5?? Have you noticed any definitions in your mid section or obliques yet?

Hi Angelo,

I’ve been a bit slack. The Holiday’s hit and I’m now training for a half marathon the end of Febuary, so have been slow upadting my results.

What I can say is I noticed definition improvement in the mid and upper abs, but the lower pesky ones, just above the waist, seem to be the toughest to get definition in. You need extremely low body fat % for those to shine through (which I think I have, but I guess not enough yet).

I’ll get myself back in gear on the reviews soon and get some new pictures and updates posted.

Thanks Ian!! Would the flex belt be effective in targeting the lower abs? I’m on a diet, and I have started swimming and started vigorous MMA and am planning on using the flex belt in conjunction……

Yes the Flex Belt will target the lower abdominals, however I did read something about someone having a strange sensation when they were wearing the flex belt too low and it was over their pelvis/hip bones (my anatomy isn’t good). Point being, when you wear the belt too low you may begin to feel the EMS sensation down your leg a little bit and according to what I’ve read this is due to the belt being over your pelvis. If you wear it as close to the waist line as possible you should see some decent results, especially with the swimming, dieting and other exercise you doing.

Sounds good Ian!! I am trying to get the lower abdominals! I’m convinced that the flex belt is effective, I’m just hoping that it will help me get my lower abs built up!

Hi Danny,

The systems you listed above are each the same, and each comes with a set of Gel Pads. However, the gel pads are a consumable. So after 20-30 uses you’ll need to replace them with a new set. Hence the reason you can order new gel pad sets at time of purchase. I’ve been suggesting that people order a set with their system so they have a back-up set of gel pads ready to go. Flex Belt offers consumers discounts if you purchase more then one belt at a time. This would be ideal if you and your partner wanted to each purchase one, or if you had a friend(s) that wanted to get one as well. You can share a flex belt, but that will wear out the gel pads more quickly.

Hi Ian,

Just wondering, if you will be posting any updates from the flex belt use?
