If you're wondering how to get a six pack with electric belts, you'll be welcomed with open arms by the companies trying to sell you them. I wonder how welcoming those same companies will be when you try and get a refund!
Here's the theory -
You want to get six pack abs, but you don't want to do all those crunches. Apart from the fact that you don't even need to do all those sit ups, which I'll come to later, you're intrigued by the adverts for the electric belts and other devices.
They claim that running an electric current to the stomach muscles will make them contract, enough to replicate the effect of all those sit ups and crunches.
Hence you can turn it on and get a six pack while sitting down watching tv!
Hmm. . .
These devices were originally invented for medical use. Yes, the electric current does make the muscle contract, but it was designed for physiotherapy work, when the patient was unable to contract the muscle any other way. Or, say if someone is in traction or disabled, they can help to stop the muscle wasting away. They simply do not make the muscle contract enough to build it up in any way, and when you see the pictures in the ads of those rippling stomachs, you can just smile because you now know better!
Building any set of muscle in the body in isolation, in this case the abs, is very hard, and usually detrimental to other parts of the body. An all round body approach is far more beneficial in the long term.
Also. if your stomach muscles are covered in a layer of belly fat, you won't have a rippling six pack no matter *what* you do, the layer of fat will just cover it up!
This means that all the crunches are a waste of time. The work on those specific muscles is the last piece of the puzzle, if needed at all.
What I mean by that is that once you have got rid of the belly fat, and developed an all round fitness lifestyle, you'll likely as not have an impressively developed stomach anyway!
So, the next time you wonder if you can get a six pack with electric belts and the like, remember what you now know to be true!
