5 Exercises With Your Slendertone Ab Toning Belt
Using your ab toning belt while running errands or doing housework is a no-brainer but using it while exercising will help boost the results of your workout. We’ve put together five exercises that are suitable to perform while wearing your Slendertone ab toning belt. Repeat the sequence twice with the aim of making your workout last a minimum of 20 minutes. Remember - use your ab toning belt alongside an active lifestyle and balanced diet for best results in just six weeks!
Starting with this very popular exercise, the Ab Crunch. This exercise works the abdominal muscles and helps strengthen your core. Lie on your back and bend your knees to a 90-degree angle, hip width apart while your hands support your head. Lift your shoulders while squeezing your ab muscles and hold for 4-5 seconds. Relax and return to starting position. Repeat for 15 reps and relax for 30 seconds.
Top Tip! Try this exercise with Programme 9 on your Abs8 toning belt. Start with an intensity that is comfortable but challenging for example 20. Increase the intensity as you core begins to feel stronger!
Get into a push up position with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Bend your elbows and lower your chest until it is just above the floor. Hold and push back up while breathing out. This targets your shoulders, arms, chest, and core, while helping to build your strength. We recommend aiming for three sets of 20 reps in two minutes, before resting for 30 seconds.
This next exercise tones and works your inner thighs, buttocks and stomach. Stand with your legs wide, knees soft and feet turned out. Squat down and go as low as you can, then push yourself back up to the starting position. Repeat as many times as possible within 2 minutes, and rest for 1 minute.
For this next exercise, lie flat on your back while bending your knees, with your hands by your side. Lift your hips off the mat, ensuring to keep your back straight. Hold this position for 5 seconds before returning to the starting position. Repeat for 10 reps and rest for 30 seconds. This exercise strengthens the gluteal muscles and hamstrings while also targeting the abdominal muscles.
Stand up straight with your feet shoulder width apart, placing your hands on your hips. Lunge forward with your right foot while slowly bending both your knees until your right knee is in line with your toes and your left knee is just above the ground. Return to the starting position and repeat on the opposite side. Repeat for 10 reps before resting for 45 seconds. Lunges target the abdominal and gluteal muscles, as well as the hamstrings.
Feel free to mix up the sequence of the exercises to avoid the feeling of repetition. Try any of the exercises with Programme 8 on your Abs8 or the Fitness Programme on your Connect Abs for an added challenge. Remember, a balanced diet combined with Slendertone and an active lifestyle is the key to achieving the best results!
