Are there any adverse effects of using toning or slimming equipments?
Q: Are there any known adverse effects of using toning/slimming equipments like the Ab slimmer, which uses electric impulses to tone the specific muscle groups and give one a better toned and shaped body?
A:Although there have not been too many studies done in the area of the efficacy of these machines for commercial use, they have been found useful for rehabilitation purposes. The general consensus is that if the time spent using these machines is actually spent on exercise, the outcome might be similar. Plus these machines do not work as effectively without the help of exercise and a nutritious diet anyway, so you might as well spend your time, effort and money using natural means, which have more longer lasting effects.
